Schaum's Outline of Biology, Fourth Edition

by: George H. Fried, George J. Hademenos


Abstract: More than 40 million students have trusted Schaum's to help them succeed in the classroom and on exams. Schaum's is the key to faster learning and higher grades in every subject. Each Outline presents all the essential course information in an easy-to-follow, topic-by-topic format. You also get hundreds of examples, solved problems, and practice exercises to test your skills. This Schaum's Outline gives you hundreds of examples with explanations of biology concepts; exercises to help you test your mastery of biology; and coverage of both biochemical and molecular approaches to biology and an understanding of life in terms of the characteristics of DNA, RNA, and protein macromolecules.

Authors:

George H. Fried was Professor of Biology at Brooklyn College. He received his AB from Brooklyn College. and his MS and PhD from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. His research interests have centered on metabolic aspects of comparative physiology and the enzymatic factors in genetic and experimental obesities. From 1983 to 1987 he served as chairperson of the Biology Department of Brooklyn College. He has taught courses in general biology and animal physiology and has developed a course in Biology and Society during a 3O-year teaching career.

George J. Hademenos is a former Visiting Assistant Professor of Physics at the University of Dallas. He received his BS from Angelo State University, his MS and PhD from the University of Texas at Dallas, and completed postdoctoral fellowships in nuclear medicine from the University of Massachusetts Medical Center and in radiological sciences/biomedical physics at UCLA Medical Center. His research interests have involved potential applications of physics to the biological and medical sciences, particularly with cerebrovascular diseases and stroke. He has published his work in journals such as American Scientist, Physics Today, Neurosurgery, and Stroke. In addition, he has written several books, including: The Physics of Cerebrovascular Diseases: Biophysical Mechanisms of Development, Diagnosis, and Therapy, published by Springer-Verlag, and McGraw-Hill's MCAT. He currently teaches general and advanced physics courses.
