Summary

For non-majors and mixed-majors introductory botany (plant biology) courses.

Plant Biology focuses students on the function of plants and the role they play in our world. With evolved content and a new organization, the authors emphasize the scientific method to help students develop the critical thinking skills they need to make sound decisions throughout life. Together, the emphasis on how plants work and the development of critical-thinking skills support the authors' goal of fostering scientific literacy.
