About the Authors
  • Biological Thermodynamics provides an introduction to the study of energy transformations for students of the biological sciences. Donald Haynie uses an informal writing style to introduce this core subject in a manner that will appeal to biology and biochemistry undergraduate students. The emphasis of the text is placed on understanding basic concepts and developing problem-solving skills throughout the text. The level of mathematical complexity is kept to a minimum. Each chapter provides numerous examples taken from different areas of biochemistry, as well as extensive exercises to aid understanding. Topics covered include energy and its transformation, the First Law of Thermodynamics, the Second Law of Thermodynamics, Gibbs Free Energy, statistical thermodynamics, binding equilibria and reaction kinetics, and a survey of the most exciting areas of biological thermodynamics today, particularly the origin of life on Earth.

    • Written in an informal style to increase accessibility and focusing on essential concepts with applications relevant to biological science students
    • Contains numerous illustrative examples and exercises to aid student understanding
    • Author has experience of teaching the subject to both US and UK students

    "In my opinion, the author has covered a traditionally boring field with vivid description and interesting examples. My overall impression is that this book is comprehensive, illustrative and up-to-date...I would certainly recommend it to my graduate students." Professor Yigong Shi, Princeton University

    "This book can be a valuable addition to the library of many students." Journal of Food Biochemistry
