There are two textbooks for this course:

  1. First, we have an online, FREE, textbook that can be accessed from any device and/or printed off. This book orignated as an open source book and is currently available to students as a pdf file through our LMS (Canvas). It has been edited to specifically follow the pedagogy of our class and includes only the information we think you need to know. You can see the table of contents and first four chapters here: Principles of Biology eText (pdf)
  2. Second, is a studio manual written by instructors of the course that guides you through the classroom activities. This book is where you will keep most of your notes. It is an important source for what will be on the exams. The graduate students of the Division of Biology sell the studio manual at the beginning of each semester, resulting in a lower price for you.
