Evolution: an introduction [Monograph] - 2nd edCompanion website
Stearns, S.C. \ Hoekstra, R.F. \ 2005
evolution - coevolution - phylogeny - speciation - genetic variation

The second edition of Evolution introduces the basic mechanisms of microevolution, natural selection, and macroevolutionary processes such as speciation and extinction. It also examines key events in evolution throughout the geological record and discusses coevolution and evolutionary medicine. In addition, the text discusses unsolved problems and looks ahead to future developments in this dynamic field. The text is organized into five parts. Part One introduces the basic mechanisms of microevolution: selection, inheritance, and development. Part Two considers how natural selection has designed organisms for reproductive success. Part Three explores macroevolutionary processes such as speciation and extinction. Part Four examines key events in evolution throughout the geological record. Part Five discusses coevolution and evolutionary medicine, which integrate and contrast micro- and macroevolution. The book closes with a chapter that recapsulates major issues, discusses unsolved problems, and looks ahead to future developments in this dynamic field.

Experimental design for the life sciences [Monograph] - 3rd edCompanion website
Ruxton, G.D. \ Colegrave, N. \ cop. 2011
biology - experimental design - experiments - statistics - sampling - measurement - data collection - textbooks - life sciences

This book teaches students how to effectively design experiments, equipping them with the skills they need to become tomorrow's top researchers. The text explains the essential elements of experimental design in clear, practical terms, so that students can grasp and apply even the most challenging concepts, including power analysis and pseudoreplication. In addition, it emphasizes the interrelatedness of experimental design, statistics, and ethical considerations throughout. A broad range of examples--drawn from the primary literature and the authors' extensive personal experience--demonstrate the practical relevance of experimental design in real-life biological research.

Infectious disease: pathogenesis, prevention, and case studies [Monograph]
Shetty, N. \ Tang, J.W. \ Andrews, J. \ cop. 2009
infectious diseases - parasitology - pathogenesis - disease prevention - case studies - textbooks

The study of infectious diseases has undergone major changes since its infancy when it was largely a documentation of epidemics. It has now evolved into a dynamic phenomenon involving the ecology of the infectious agent, pathogenesis in the host, reservoirs and vectors, as well as the complex mechanisms concerned in the spread of infection and the extent to which this spread occurs. Rapid globalization has led to unprecedented interest in infectious diseases worldwide and their effect on complex population dynamics including migration, famine, fire, war, and terrorism. It is now essential for public health officials to understand the basic science behind infectious disease and, likewise, students studying infectious diseases must have a broader understanding of the implications of infectious disease in a public health context as well as clinical presentation and prevention. The clear demand for an integrated approach has led to the publication of this text. This book provides a valuable overview of the basic principles and issues pertaining to the pathogenesis and prevention of infectious diseases.

Markell and Voge's medical parasitology [Monograph] - 9th ed. / [ed. by] David T. John, William A. Petri, Jr
John, D.T. \ Petri, W.A. \ Markell \ Voge \ cop. 2006
medical parasitology - medical entomology - parasites - pathology - laboratory diagnosis - textbooks

This book explores the etiologic agents of human disease belonging to the animal kingdom: protozoa, helminths (worms), and arthropods (insects and spiders), all of which are a significant cause of, or link to illness encountered both in tropical and temperate environments. In addition to providing detailed descriptions of these agents, this text deals with the clinical diseases they cause, their modes of acquisition, transmission and epidemiology, and their pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Completely redrawn line drawings and improved halftones provide visual examples related directly to the textual material.

Plants, genes, and crop biotechnology [Monograph] - 2nd ed
Chrispeels, M.J. \ Sadava, D.E. \ 2003
plants - genes - genetics - genetic engineering - biotechnology - plant breeding - food supply - plant diseases - insect pests - textbooks

This book integrates many fields to help students understand the complexity of the basic science that underlies crop and food production. It is truly an interdisciplinary text that brings together aspects of genetics and plant breeding, molecular biology and genetic engineering, plant development and reproduction, soils and plant nutrition, agro-ecology and the sustainability of agricultural practices, population increases and the difficulty of eradicating hunger, pest control practices and their environmental consequences, the role of biotechnology in modern crop production. The orientation is not strictly towards American or even "Western" agriculture, as many examples are taken from the agricultural problems in developing countries. Examples of crop genetic engineering are used throughout the book and not confined to one chapter.
