Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides practical advice to students who are learning to write according to the conventions in biology. Using the standards of journal publication as a model, the author provides, in a user-friendly format, specific instructions on: using biology databases to locate references; developing sound reading strategies; paraphrasing for improved comprehension; writing for a particular audience with the appropriate tone; preparing lab reports or scientific papers, posters, and oral presentations with accepted format and content; self-evaluating drafts; and using peer and instructor feedback for professional development.

Book News Annotation:

Knisely (Bucknell University) provides students with a practical, readable resource for communicating their scientific knowledge according to the conventions in biology. This second edition has been revised to increase reader friendliness, and contains updated material on biology databases, Microsoft Word, and Excel. Visuals have been added to complement material on formatting graphs and tables, and data from actual lab exercises are presented along with explanations of ways of organizing the data.
