Summary

This brief guide teaches biology students how to read more thoughtfully and think more carefully about what they read and observe, and then translate those skills into effective writing. Students are shown how writing can be used to examine and clarify their thinking, resulting in clearer, more well thought-out papers, proposals, and reports. New edition has more coverage of visuals, from understanding charts and graphs to preparing poster presentations.
