One of the best ways for your students to succeed in their biology course is through hands-on lab experience. With its 46 lab exercises and hundreds of color photos and illustrations, the LABORATORY MANUAL FOR NON-MAJORS BIOLOGY, Sixth Edition, is your students' guide to a better understanding of biology. Most exercises can be completed within two hours, and answers to the exercises are included in the Instructor's Manual. The perfect companion to Starr and Taggart's BIOLOGY: THE UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE, as well as Starr's BIOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS, and BIOLOGY TODAY AND TOMORROW, this lab manual can also be used with any introductory biology text.
