Professors and students appreciate the low cost of this title, and that it is written for students who are not biology majors.

New to This Edition

  • Chapters 2, 6 and 7 have been completely rewritten, reorganized and ...show moreupdated. Chapter 2 now provides a wider survey of chemistry useful to study later in the book. Chapter 6 now provides a more clear option of teaching this material at different levels of complexity. A broad overview is provided of both respiration and photosynthesis. Chapter 7 now provides a modern perspective to coverage of genetics, including the genome and new applications of genetic engineering.
  • Many new and updated boxed readings appear throughout the text to maintain currency of coverage and relate everyday news to material presented in the course.
  • Cross references have been added within the narrative to direct students to relevant coverage elsewhere in the text.
  • New chapter opening material includes Goals and Objectives written in language that allows and promotes assessment of objectives as students progress through the chapter.
  • Secondary headings have been added throughout to break up and organize long passages of text into more digestible sections.
  • Improved e-Learning Connections highlight key study tools such as animations, investigations, etc. available for each section of the text through the Online Learning Center. An e-Learning Connection page appears at the end of each chapter. This page is repeated and expanded on the Online Learning Center.
  • New List of word roots, prefixes and suffixes will help students master the new vocabulary encountered in this course.
  • New co-author, David Bailey of Delta College, was brought on to add his dynamic voice in a new chapter on molecular genetics as well as to write online content that will supplement the entire text.
Features
  • The concept that there are three major categories of life known as Domains has become generally accepted by the scientific community. This concept is introduced in Chapter 4 on cells and has been incorporated throughout the text whenever appropriate.
  • Sections of the text that deal with evolution, classification, and taxonomy have been changed substantially. New sections deal with common misconceptions about natural selection, the difference between the biological and morphological species concepts, evidence for evolution, evolutionary time lines, and cladistics. Cladograms have been included in several places in the text where they are appropriate. The section on human evolution has been rewritten to include changes in thinking about human origins.
  • End of Chapter Material: Chapter summaries at the end of each chapter clearly review the concepts presented. Thinking Critically Questions challenge students to think logically through problems and arrive at conclusions based on the concept of that chapter.
