This edition differs in several ways from its predecessor. In addition to a moderate reorganization of the exercises contained in the previous edition, more than 20 new exercises have been added. The addition of the new exercises will provide instructors with a greater variety of laboratory experiment to choose from and the ability to futher tailor the lab experience to the specific needs of their students.

The exercises in the manual feature references to the Atlas (as appropriate); a materials list; the exercise protocol; results record; precautions and references in a simple-to-use yet comprehensive lab experience. Two exercises on identifying unknown bacterial species and exercises on identification of stages and structures of bacteria, fungi, protozoa and helminths are also featured.

A useful appendix containing recipes for all media, stains, and reagents used helps students and instructors with lab preparation.
