The themes of microbial evolution, ecology, and diversity continue to be integrated throughout the Eighth Edition. The most up-to-date information to maintain accurate descriptions of structures and processes, as well as provide exciting recent discoveries to illustrate essential points, has been added.
Illustrations and photos feature three-dimensional renditions and bright, attractive colors! The art program also includes pedagogical features such as concept maps and annotation of key pathways and processes.
Study aids have been developed to help students better understand the vast array of microbiology concepts:
- Questions that require critical thinking skills are found throughout.
- Every term is page-referenced and there is also a complete and thorough glossary.
The Eighth Edition continues to present material in short chapters organized thematically into nine separate sections. Shorter chapters are less daunting and more digestible for most students. Furthermore, they offer the professor a greater degree of flexibility so that the order in which chapters are covered can be tailored to meet the needs of an individual class. (864.0K)
