Learn the methodology, skills, techniques, tools and applications of Linguistic Anthropology with THE ANTHROPOLOGY OF LANGUAGE: AN INTRODUCTION TO LINGUISTIC ANTHROPOLOGY. This highly readable introductory text emphasizes the kinds of intriguing questions that anthropologists ask about language. The fourth edition brings together the key areas of linguistic anthropology, addressing issues of power, race, gender and class throughout. "In the Field" vignettes draw you into the chapter material and are culled from authors Ottenheimer and Pine's own experiences, among others. Other features--"Doing Linguistic Anthropology" and "Cross-Language Miscommunication"--describe some of the real-life applications of concepts discussed in the text, helping you cement your understanding of the concepts and their relevance.

The most widely used text in its course area, James W. Kalat's BIOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY has appealed to thousands of students before you. Why? Kalat's main goal is to make Biological Psychology understandable to Psychology students, not just to Biology majors and pre meds--and he delivers. Another goal is to convey the excitement of the search for biological explanations of behavior. Kalat believes that Biological Psychology is "the most interesting topic in the world, " and this text convinces many students--and maybe you, too--with clear writing, amusing anecdotes and intriguing examples. MindTap, an interactive online learning resource that integrates the text with videos, animations and a virtual bio-lab component, makes learning even easier and more enjoyable.

Solomon, Martin, Martin and Berg's BIOLOGY--often described as the best majors' text for learning Biology--is also a complete teaching program. The integrated, inquiry-based learning system guides students through every chapter, starting with key concepts at the beginning of each chapter and learning objectives for each section. End-of-section Checkpoint questions encourage students to review key points before moving on. A chapter summary further reinforces learning objectives, followed by an opportunity for students to test their understanding. The eleventh edition offers expanded integration of the text's five guiding themes of Biology--the evolution of life, the transmission of biological information, the flow of energy through living systems, interactions among biological systems and the inter-relationship of structure and function. Available with MindTap Biology, the platform that gives instructors complete control of their course and powers students from memorization to mastery.

Genetics: Analysis of Genes and Genomes is a resource uniquely suited for learning and applying genetics to our world. Its DNA first presentation frames the discussion of genetics in modern terms, which provides the user the context to then understand its Mendelian history. Genetics continues to treat transmission genetics, molecular genetics, and evolutionary genetics as fully integrated subjects and provides students with an unprecedented understanding of the basic process of gene transmission, mutation, expression, and regulation. A new unit structure with self-contained chapters provides the flexibility to fit any course design, whether it be Mendel-early, Chromosome-early, or a Genome-first approach. The dynamism of genetics is also perfectly captured, as coverage of technological advances is woven together with ethical controversies. Problem-solving is a core element to this experimental discipline, and the ninth edition of Genetics is unparalleled in the tools it provides to unlock this fascinating subject. This rich resource allows students copious opportunities to practice and learn by using the clearly-presented mathematical concepts and exercises and chapter problems that encourage students to analyze and apply new skills.
