Book Description

Jan. 10 2013 0073369446 978-0073369440 13
This introductory text assumes little prior scientific knowledge on the part of the student. It includes sufficient information for some shorter introductory botany courses open to both majors and nonmajors, and is arranged so that certain sections can be omitted without disrupting the overall continuity of the course. Stern emphasizes current interests while presenting basic botanical principles. This latest edition incorporates measurable learning outcomes and updated readings. Students will be introduced to the new classification of plants and plant-related species, integration of biotechnology into several chapters and inclusion of new text boxes addressing the areas of ecology, evolution and molecular biology. New photos have replaced older pictures or have been added also.
With this edition we introduce McGraw-Hill Connect® Botany, a web-based assignment and assessment platform that gives students the means to better connect with their coursework, with their instructors, and with the important concepts that they will need to know for success now and in the future. With McGraw-Hill Connect Botany, instructors can deliver interactive assignments, quizzes and tests online. Nearly all the questions from the text are presented in an autogradable format and tied to the text’s learning objectives.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book but bad printing Sept. 13 2013
By Matt Burger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The chapters cover good introductory concepts on cellular structure and applications of botany, but several (30?) pages have ink smears all over them. The book is readable and the color photos that don't have bad printing are very handy, but the pages that are blotched out and smeared are unacceptable in a book that costs over $130 dollars. This was a bad batch/printing, your luck may be better.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little wordy Dec 14 2013

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was my book for an intro botany class. It goes into a lot of detail at a higher level than I was prepared for in an intro class. Not always a bad thing I guess.
4.0 out of 5 stars the book is in good condition. Aug. 13 2014

The book arrived on time but, its cover had some damage. Something sticky was also on the bottom edges of some of the pages. Other than those details, the book is in good condition.
