For laboratory courses in Human/Animal Physiology
Noted for its clear language, logical information flow, and emphasis on developing critical skills, this versatile manual covers all of the material needed for a one-semester human or animal physiology laboratory course. Over 90 exercises are organized into 22 chapters that are suitable for a two- to four-hour lab period.
The Eleventh Edition incorporates inquiry-based components, including an "Explain This" feature, which asks you to thoughtfully consider the aim of each exercise that they perform, and also contains a new scientific inquiry and graphing Appendix - making this a perfect complement to any book. Instructors may pair the lab manual with other technologies such as PhysioEx (TM) 9.1, PowerLab, Vernier, and BIOPAC to effectively engage you. This impressive collaboration between Woodman and Tharp gives instructors the opportunity to truly foster critical thinking skills and add a dynamic element to their laboratory courses.
David Woodman joined the project in the Eighth Edition and is now fully responsible for the manuscript revision, though Dr. Tharp remains a consultant as needed. David has used this manual in his own lab for over a decade and has a solid grasp of the content, style, and technology in the text, as well as the student interests, goals and challenges encountered in this course. Dr. Gerald Tharp is a retired professor of the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. He signed the contract for this title back in 1973, with Burgess Publishing Co. in Minneapolis, and the title was later passed to Macmillan Inc. of New York, which was succeeded by Prentice-Hall for the Eighth Edition in 2001. The Eighth Edition was the last time that Tharp actively participated in the revision process.
