Breakthroughs in Bioscience

Do you want access to a great series of FREE full colors books?

Booklets from the Breakthroughs in Bioscience series by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) include a collection of wonderful resources for A&P professors.

These are portable document files (pdf) files that you can download and print or provide links for your students to access them. All you need is the free Foxit Reader (which I prefer) or Adobe Reader to download and read or print the files.

All in this series are written in an easy to understand style directed toward the interested layperson . . . so they are perfect for beginning A&P students. Most of them emphasize the discovery process of science rather than simply reveal concepts. This makes them ideal for adding that discovery dimension to your course. In other words, these booklets walk the reader through how science is done in a way that can't be done in a textbook or classroom.

For example, the book Science, Serotonin, and Sadness: the Biology Antidepressants is a great way to show students how knowledge of neurotransmitters and synaptic transmission has practical applications in real life.

To browse the whole list, go to Breakthroughs in Bioscience. They are also listed in my list of FREE books related to A&P at The A&P Professor website.
