Abstract:

"This eighth edition provides extensive guidance for all aspects of writing for biologists at all stages of training, including research reports, essay exams, term papers, research proposals, summaries, critiques, poster presentations, oral presentations, and letters of application for jobs and graduate programs. It explains how biologists work, how they design studies, and how they think about the data they collect and provides detailed advice on working with data, presenting data, and interpreting the results of statistical analyses. It also offers detailed advice about locating useful sources of information, both in print and on the Web, and about avoiding plagiarism and includes extensive pedagogy in each chapter--helpful hints and end of chapter checklists and summaries, which can easily be used by students to facilitate peer review and by instructors to generate grading rubrics. Guiding students through the important process of creating effective oral presentations and poster presentations, this guide includes numerous 'Technology Tips,' helping students to take better advantage of the computer technology available to them for writing, revising, graphing, calculating, and giving effective talks." -- From the Publisher.
