Summary

Human Biology: Concepts and Current Issues, Fifth Edition sparks interest among non-science readers by encouraging them to connect basic biology concepts to real-world issues that are relevant to their own lives. As an award-winning teacher, author Michael Johnson demystifies the scientific process and the concepts of human biology, using a narrative style to tell a story with a reader-friendly approach. Genetic testing, antioxidants, and the black market for bones are just a few of the timely topics that are woven throughout each chapter to engage readers in learning the basics of human biology. Michael Johnson's jargon-free writing style and expanded coverage of current issues are supported by dozens of exciting new illustrations and photos that further engage reader interest, while unique ''Try It Yourself'' boxes promote active learning. The Fifth Edition includes completely updated and redesigned art, as well as an increased focus on critical thinking. Human Biology's expanded supplements package features Interactive Physiology® for Human Biology with a new module on the Immune System, which provides a wealth of outstanding animations, activities, and self-testing that can be used in lectures or as a study tool outside of the classroom. Other supplements include the new Teaching Tool Box, the Human Biology Support Manual, a wealth of media and animations, and a revised Study Guide.
