Summary

Essential Biology with Physiology is a brief non-majors biology book that combines the clear writing, real-world applications, vivid art program, and powerful media of Essential Biology , Second Edition, with nine new chapters on animal and plant physiology for instructors who want to cover these topics in their courses. Essential Biology with Physiology helps students become informed citizens by focusing on evolution, human applications, and up-to-date information on important issues like DNA technology, cloning, and global warming. Biology and Society essays at the beginning of each chapter hook students' attention, and visual summaries at the end of each chapter help students reinforce their understanding of key concepts.
