In an age when content and speed appear to be the preoccupation of a world oversaturated with photographic imagery, this book aims to guide students and learners through a comprehensive range of design principles that add dynamism, longevity and impact to their photography, whatever the style or genre – something that today’s editors, curators and publishers are all crying out for. Design principles are not a dry list of improvement techniques or artistic dos and don’ts. This book takes readers through the basic elements of design – line, shape, color, space, texture and light – and shows how design awareness through the application of these concepts can add rhythm, movement, contrast and a new level of depth and dimension to your images.
Biochemistry provides the most up to date coverage is important in this course with in-depth and accurate coverage of the chemical concepts that underlie classical biochemical theory, as well as providing coverage of the exciting, modern developments in this dynamic field. The fourth edition challenges students to learn the chemical concepts that underlie both classical biochemical theory as well as the latest developments in the field. It follows a more brief and qualitative approach to present biochemistry with chemical rigor, focusing on the structures of biomolecules, chemical mechanisms, and evolutionary relationships.
Biology is a comprehensive introductory biology textbook for non-majors or mixed-majors courses that covers biology in a traditional order from the structure and function of the cell to the organization of the biosphere. The book, which centers on the evolution and diversity of organisms, is appropriate for a one- or two-semester course. It''s no wonder that Sylvia Mader''s Biology continues to be a text that''s appreciated as much by instructors as it is by the students who use it. The ninth edition is the epitome of Mader''s expertise: Its concise, precise writing uses an economy of words to present the material as succinctly and clearly as possible, thereby enabling students -- even non-majors -- to understand the concepts without necessarily asking the instructor to explain further.
