Fundamentals of Geobiology Book Review:

2012 PROSE Award, Earth Science: Honorable Mention For more than fifty years scientists have been concerned with theinterrelationships of Earth and life. Over the past decade,however, geobiology, the name given to this interdisciplinaryendeavour, has emerged as an exciting and rapidly expanding field,fuelled by advances in molecular phylogeny, a new microbial ecologymade possible by the molecular revolution, increasinglysophisticated new techniques for imaging and determining chemicalcompositions of solids on nanometer scales, the development ofnon-traditional stable isotope analyses, Earth systems science andEarth system history, and accelerating exploration of other planetswithin and beyond our solar system. Geobiology has many faces: there is the microbial weathering ofminerals, bacterial and skeletal biomineralization, the roles ofautotrophic and heterotrophic metabolisms in elemental cycling, theredox history in the oceans and its relationship to evolution andthe origin of life itself.. This book is the first to set out a coherent set of principlesthat underpin geobiology, and will act as a foundational text thatwill speed the dissemination of those principles. The chapters havebeen carefully chosen to provide intellectually rich but concisesummaries of key topics, and each has been written by one or moreof the leading scientists in that field.. Fundamentals of Geobiology is aimed at advancedundergraduates and graduates in the Earth and biological sciences,and to the growing number of scientists worldwide who have aninterest in this burgeoning new discipline.

Concepts of Biology Book Review:

Concepts of Biology is designed for the single-semester introduction to biology course for non-science majors, which for many students is their only college-level science course. As such, this course represents an important opportunity for students to develop the necessary knowledge, tools, and skills to make informed decisions as they continue with their lives. Rather than being mired down with facts and vocabulary, the typical non-science major student needs information presented in a way that is easy to read and understand. Even more importantly, the content should be meaningful. Students do much better when they understand why biology is relevant to their everyday lives. For these reasons, Concepts of Biology is grounded on an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand.We also strive to show the interconnectedness of topics within this extremely broad discipline. In order to meet the needs of today's instructors and students, we maintain the overall organization and coverage found in most syllabi for this course. A strength of Concepts of Biology is that instructors can customize the book, adapting it to the approach that works best in their classroom. Concepts of Biology also includes an innovative art program that incorporates critical thinking and clicker questions to help students understand--and apply--key concepts.

Fundamentals of Laboratory Animal Science Book Review:

Laboratory animals are becoming increasingly important for biomedical research. It is said that approximately 70% of biomedical research is associated with the use of experimental animals. Laboratory animal research not only expands our knowledge of science, but also greatly improves human and animal health. The field of laboratory animal science is ever-growing and changing as new experimental techniques are developed and new animal models are created. It is essential to know not only the biological features of each laboratory animal but also how to use and care for them responsibly in order to perform high-quality experiments. Courses in beginning Laboratory Animal Science are starting to be offered in many universities throughout the world. However, a practical introductory textbook that contains state-of-the-art techniques is still lacking. Fundamentals of Laboratory Animal Science provides comprehensive information on the principles and practices of using laboratory animals for biomedical research. Each individual chapter focuses on a key sub-discipline of laboratory animal science: animal welfare and best humane care practices in the laboratory; the quality control of laboratory animals; the anatomy, physiology, and husbandry of commonly used species; the principles of creating and using animal models for studying human diseases; practical techniques used for laboratory animal experiments; experimental design; and animal experimentation management. Knowledge of this broad spectrum of concepts and skills will ensure research goes smoothly while greatly reducing animal pain and distress. Well-illustrated and thoroughly referenced, this book will serve not only as a standard textbook but also as a handy guide for veterinarians, researchers, animal care staff, administrators, and other professionals who are involved in laboratory animal science.
