Authors Gerard J. Tortora, Berdell R. Funke, and Christine L. Case have made the 10th edition of Microbiology: An Introduction with MyMicrobiologyPlace Website even more straightforward to meet various student skill levels. This clear-cut edition is an improvement of the previous best-selling version and now features better graphics, visual ‘Foundation Figures,' and interactive online support. Divided into 5 main chapters, it covers key subjects such as the fundamentals microbiology, classifications of the microbial world, the principles of epidemiology and disease, pathogenicity, innate and adaptive immunity, and microbial diseases (from the nervous to the reproductive systems). The final sections cover applied environmental as well as industrial microbiology. To improve precision and clarity, Tortora/Funke/Case added ‘Focus' boxes, as well as ‘Study Outlines' and ‘Draw It' questions at the end of each chapter. Students are given frequent opportunities to assess their understanding and ability to move to the next topics in the newly-introduced ‘Check Your Understanding' tools and the supplementary workbook. Microbiology: An Introduction with MyMicrobiologyPlace Website (ISBN 9780321550071) also offers access to the revolutionary MyMicrobiologyPlace.com website where students and teachers can use a bind-in ‘access code' card to retrieve 3D animations, brief audio reviews, and other helpful resources. This book is an excellent material for non-majors, and is undoubtedly one of the clearest introductions to this highly specialised branch of science. It is designed for those looking to develop a strong groundwork in virology, immunology, parasitology, mycology, and bacteriology, as well experts looking for a quick reference. Recent content upgrades include sections on bioterrorism as well as biofilms.
