Biology Student Lab Manual (5th ed.)

The Biology (5th ed.) Lab Manual encourages students to explore God’s world both in the lab and in the field. This fresh lab manual helps students learn about life not just through dissections but also through observing, recording, and analyzing samples and data from the living world to make models, predictions, and graphs.

* Note, for a complete educational experience, additional laboratory purchases may be required. For your convenience, we provide complete lab kits through Logos Science.
