Biology with Vernier

Biology with Vernier is the foundational biology book for high school and college courses.


Biology with Vernier addresses the fundamentals of a high school or college general biology course with 31 experiments that include cell respiration, photosynthesis, membrane diffusion, osmosis, human physiology, transpiration, fermentation, and more. The instructor information section included for each experiment contains tips for successful completion, reagent preparation information, and sample data.

If you teach AP*, IB**, or college biology, you should also consider Advanced Biology with Vernier and Human Physiology with Vernier.
