Book Description. An indispensable tool for biology teacher educators, researchers, graduate students, and practising teachers, this book presents up-to-date research, addresses common misconceptions, and discusses the pedagogical content knowledge necessary for effective teaching of key topics in biology. (Effective Teaching) "The book is not merely an explication but a thoughtfully crafted, neuroscientfically informed teaching device that obeys the advice offered."

Mader's Human Biology was developed to fill this void. To accomplish the goal of improving scientific literacy, while establishing a foundation of 4/4(59). Research Methods in Human Skeletal Biology serves as the one location readers can go to not only learn how to conduct research in general, but how research is specifically conducted within human skeletal biology. It outlines the current types of research being conducted within each sub-specialty of skeletal biology, and gives the reader the tools to set up a research project in skeletal biology. Symposia of the Society for the Study of Human Biology, Volume VI: Teaching and Research in Human Biology covers the proceedings of the Symposium on Teaching and Research in Human Biology, held at the Anatomy Department of University College, London.
