Laboratory and field studies are essential areas of undergraduate training in biology; practical work must be fully understood and effectively presented, but many students under-perform because they lack basic laboratory skills. The fifth edition continues to provide you with easy-to-use guidance for laboratory and field studies and broader transferable skills. It also offers you new material on subjects ranging from environmental investigations to writing a project proposal. It is the ideal text for you to rely on throughout your undergraduate course.
