Given the authors' work in and dedication to science education, this text's writing style, pedagogy, and integrated support package are all based on classroom-tested teaching strategies and learning theory. The result is a learning program that enhances the effectiveness & efficiency of the teaching and learning experience in the introductory biology course like no other before it. In Sandra and Brian Alters' years of teaching biology and training science teachers, they've worked to understand how to create the optimal learning environment and a buzz in the classroom.

6 Blechman, Andrew D. Pigeons The Fascinating Saga of the World's Most Revered and Reviled Bird

Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. Pigeons have been worshipped as fertility goddesses and revered as symbols of peace. Domesticated since the dawn of man, theyve been used as crucial communicators in war by every major historical superpower from ancient Egypt to the United States and are credited with saving thousands of lives. Charles Darwin relied heavily on pigeons to help formulate and support his theory of evolution. Yet today they are reviled as rats with wings.  Author Andrew D. Blechman traveled across the United States and Europe to meet with pigeon fanciers and pigeon haters in a quest to find out how we came to misunderstand one of mankinds most helpful and steadfast companions. Pigeons captures a Brooklyn mans quest to win the Main Event (the pigeon worlds equivalent of the Kentucky Derby) , as well as a convention dedicated to breeding the perfect bird. Blechman participates in a live pigeon shoot where entrants pay $150; he tracks down Mike Tyson, the nations most famous pigeon lover; he spends time with Queen Elizabeths Royal Pigeon Handler; and he sheds light on a radical pro-pigeon underground in New York City. In Pigeons, Blechman tells for the first time the remarkable story behind this seemingly unremarkable bird.; 8.03 X 5.35 X 0.55 inches; 256 pages

This realization has led to calls for new ways of providing this information, including the formation of a national biological survey. This volume discusses key issues and problems for which an improved assessment of the nation's biological resources is needed; the kinds of efforts in research and information management needed to create that assessment; and how government, private organizations, and individuals can work together to meet the needs identified. Policymakers, resource managers, public interest groups, and researchers will find this book useful as they participate in the national dialogue on this topic and take actions to implement the needed survey activities. ; 8.90 X 5.90 X 0.60 inches; 224 pages
