Cell Biology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Evolution and Ecology

The multicolored edition of the textbook of Cell Biology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Evolution and Ecology is the outcome of sincere and combined efforts of the authors and editors and young but talented persons of DTP of S.Chand & Company Ltd.

Cell Biology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Evolution and Ecology

Cell Biology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Evolution And Ecology

A very good book for the undergraduates. Good book to prepare for the cell biology, Genetics, Evolution and Ecology portion of the UPSC CSE Botany optional along with preparation of IIT JAM and other National level entrance exams. Diagrams are well defined and this multicolored edition just takes you with itself.

Their main motive remained to provide relevant colored photographs explaining various intricate biological topics. Multicolored figures and photographs of this edition would help our target readers to understand and fully appreciate the very gist of the subject matter. Authors and editors have remained quite choosy and vigilant regarding relevance and authenticity of each and every illustration/picture finding its place in this textbook.

The revised edition of this bestselling textbook provides latest and detailed account of vital topics in biology, namely, Cell Biology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Evolution and Ecology. The treatment is very exhaustive as the book devotes exclusive parts to each topic, yet in a simple, lucid and concise manner. Simplified and well labelled diagrams and pictures make the subject interesting and easy to understand. It is developed for students of B.Sc. Pass and Honours courses, primarily. However, it is equally useful for students of M.Sc. Zoology, Botany and Biosciences. Aspirants of medical entrance and civil services examinations would also find the book extremely useful.

Key Features :
• Discussion on new topics such as Genetic Engineering (Biotechnology) and Immunology added
• Over 700+ figures and images for effective understanding of the concepts
• Over 600+ revision questions to help students evaluate their knowledge
