Summary

With this Ninth Edition, the "Number One" best-selling non-majors microbiology text extends its trusted and reliable approach with improved disease chapters that feature efficient new "Disease in Focus" boxes, a thoroughly revised immunity chapter (17), new options for the Microbiology Place website/CD-Rom, and a new Media Manager instructor presentation package with 30 multi-step animations.

Features

  • The text's comprehensive coverage addresses the needs of instructors teaching a course with a mix of allied health and biology majors. The authors are careful to describe the microbial world as having beneficial effects, not just pathogenic organisms.
  • A superb art program is enhanced with more than 100 new or improved full-color micrographs with precise labels and sizing scales to supplement the text's proven illustration methods, including step-by-step diagrams and orientation figures.
  • Short chapters and straightforward explanations of processes help keep students focused on key concepts.
  • Active learning pedagogy engages students through the use of figure legend questions and a wide variety of end-of-chapter review questions (with answers at the end of the book).
  • Diseases are organized by body systems, which can facilitate learning for students who are pursuing careers in health care fields and have taken anatomy & physiology courses that also organize topics by body system.
