Summary

Emphasizing writing as a means to examining, evaluating, sharing, and refining ideas, A Short Guide to Writing about Biology helps students get more out of their biology courses and prepares them for work beyond the classroom. More than a "writing guide," this book teaches students to think as biologists and to then express that thinking clearly and concisely through their writing and speaking. With comprehensive coverage on how to read and evaluate articles, how to interpret and describe the results of statistical tests, how to maintain laboratory and field notebooks, and how to communicate information concisely and convincingly to professional and general audiences, this book is a "must have" for any biology student. This edition also provides considerable emphasis on the Internet and work with computers in Biology.
