J. Silveus - BIO 230: Environmental Biology - Faculty Showcase at California State University, Monterey Bay

This open textbook is being utilized in an environmental biology course for undergraduate students by John Silveus, M.S., at Cal State Monterey Bay. The open textbook conveys the same biological information as traditional textbooks but does so in simpler terms that these students can easily understand. The main motivation to adopt an open textbook was I did not want to make students pay for a text they would resent buying (as I did many times).  Most students access the open textbook online.
