This manual has proved to be especially popular for introductory biology labs emphasizing a molecular-cellular approach. The 12 exercises are ideal for the quarter length or semester program and are adaptable for use with most textbooks. Designed for majors and non-majors, the manual begins with the fundamentals. For students with little or no background, the first two exercises focus on developing laboratory skills. Exercises are consistently organized: theory relates lab experiences with concepts presented in lecture; objectives summarize skills and concepts to be mastered; materials and equipment needed for the exercise are an aid for instructors; procedures are described step-by-step; and detachable lab reports are provided for hand-ins. All exercises have been thoroughly class-tested. The manual is self-contained and adaptable for use with most textbooks. Highlights include numerous illustrations, many with color added for clarity; an appendix on the metric system for hand student reference; and 16 pages of extra graph paper. A plus for instructors is the appendix with instructions for preparing solutions, reagents, and materials needed. An answer key for lab reports is available on adoption.This manual has proved to be especially popular for introductory biology labs emphasizing a molecular-cellular approach.
