Inquiring About Plants offers classroom-tested “tricks of the trade” for drawing students into the practice of science. This practical guide includes 20 activities to promote students’ critical thinking about concepts in ecology, morphology, anatomy, physiology, genetic variation, evolution, and climate change—making the guide relevant for a wide variety of biology instructors and courses. It then illustrates ways you can help students connect concepts and experiences together in student-centered investigations.

This book will be a go-to resource for either high school teachers or college science faculty who want to create a culture of inquiry in their classrooms.  It offers a working model for instructors to help them teach biology by engaging in activities that focus on students' learning and that help students help themselves understand and apply the major processes and concepts of biology.
