A classic gets a new coauthor and a new approach: Developmental Biology, Eleventh Edition, keeps the excellent writing, accuracy, and enthusiasm of the Gilbert Developmental Biology book, streamlines it, adds innovative electronic supplements, and creates a new textbook for those teaching Developmental Biology to a new generation.
Several new modes of teaching are employed in the new Gilbert and Barresi textbook. The videos explaining development--as well as those from Mary Tyler's Vade Mecum--are referenced throughout the book, and several other valuable new elements have been added.
Additional updates include:
* An increased emphasis on stem cells, which are covered extensively and early in the book.
* Sex determination and gametogenesis, instead of being near the end of the volume, are up front, prior to fertilization.
* Greatly expanded coverage of neural development, comprising a unit unto itself.
* Coverage of new experiments on morphogenesis and differentiation, as well as new techniques such as CRISPR.
Significantly enhanced for the eleventh edition, and referenced throughout the textbook, the Developmental Biology Companion Website provides students with a range of engaging resources, in the following categories:
* NEW Dev Tutorials: Professionally produced video tutorials, presented by the textbook's authors, reinforces key concepts.
* NEW Watch Development: Putting concepts into action, these informative videos show real-life developmental biology processes.
* Web Topics: These extensive topics provide more information for advanced students, historical, philosophical, and ethical perspectives on issues in developmental biology, and links to additional online resources.
* NEW Scientists Speak: In these question-and-answer interviews, developmental biology topics are explored by leading experts in the field.
* Plus the full bibliography of literature cited in the textbook (most linked to their PubMed citations).
DevBio Laboratory: Vade Mecum3
Included with each new copy of the textbook, Vade Mecum3 is an interactive website that helps students understand the organisms discussed in the course, and prepare them for the lab. The site includes videos of developmental processes and laboratory techniques, and has chapters on the following organisms: slime mold (Dictyostelium discoideum), planarian, sea urchin, fruit fly (Drosophila), chick, and amphibian.
Instructor's Resource Library (available to qualified adopters)
The Developmental Biology, Eleventh Edition, Instructor's Resource Library includes the following resources:
* NEW Developing Questions: Answers, references, and recommendations for further reading are provided so that you and your students can explore the Developing Questions that are posed throughout each chapter.

* Video Collection: Includes video segments depicting a wide range of developmental processes, plus segments from DevBio Laboratory: Vade Mecum3, and Differential Experessions2.
* Vade Mecum3 PowerPoints: Chick serial sections and whole mounts, provided in both labeled and unlabeled versions, for use in creating quizzes, exams, or in-class exercises.
* NEW Case Studies in Dev Bio: This new collection of case study problems accompanies the Dev Tutorials and provides instructors with ready-to-use in-class active learning exercises. The case studies foster deep learning in developmental biology by providing students an opportunity to apply course content to the critical analysis of data, to generate hypotheses, and to solve novel problems in the field. Each case study includes a PowerPoint presentation and a student handout with accompanying questions.

|The River of Consciousness
Lowest new price: $14.95
Lowest used price: $16.47
List price: $27.00
Author: Oliver Sacks
From the best-selling author of Gratitude, On the Move, and Musicophilia, a collection of essays that displays Oliver Sacks's passionate engagement with the most compelling and seminal ideas of human endeavor: evolution, creativity, memory, time, consciousness, and experience.
Oliver Sacks, a scientist and a storyteller, is beloved by readers for the extraordinary neurological case histories (Awakenings, An Anthropologist on Mars) in which he introduced and explored many now familiar disorders--autism, Tourette's syndrome, face blindness, savant syndrome. He was also a memoirist who wrote with honesty and humor about the remarkable and strange encounters and experiences that shaped him (Uncle Tungsten, On the Move, Gratitude). Sacks, an Oxford-educated polymath, had a deep familiarity not only with literature and medicine but with botany, animal anatomy, chemistry, the history of science, philosophy, and psychology. The River of Consciousness is one of two books Sacks was working on up to his death, and it reveals his ability to make unexpected connections, his sheer joy in knowledge, and his unceasing, timeless project to understand what makes us human.

A major book about the future of the world, blending intellectual and natural history and field reporting into a powerful account of the mass extinction unfolding before our eyes
Over the last half-billion years, there have been Five mass extinctions, when the diversity of life on earth suddenly and dramatically contracted. Scientists around the world are currently monitoring the sixth extinction, predicted to be the most devastating extinction event since the asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs. This time around, the cataclysm is us. In prose that is at once frank, entertaining, and deeply informed, New Yorker writer Elizabeth Kolbert tells us why and how human beings have altered life on the planet in a way no species has before. Interweaving research in half a dozen disciplines, descriptions of the fascinating species that have already been lost, and the history of extinction as a concept, Kolbert provides a moving and comprehensive account of the disappearances occurring before our very eyes. She shows that the sixth extinction is likely to be mankind's most lasting legacy, compelling us to rethink the fundamental question of what it means to be human.
