Summary

For one- or two-semester courses in Introductory Biology for mixed and non-majors.

With the amount of information in biology growing constantly, instructors must select what to cover--and at the same time instill a sense of scientific literacy in non-majors students. Biology: Life on Earth helps instructors and students manage a wealth of scientific information in a way students can relate to. Students are encouraged to learn according to their own style, and to relate this information to their own lives.
