Overview

About the Product

Renowned for its writing style and trendsetting art, BIOLOGY: THE UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE engages students with relevant applications and encourages critical thinking. The new edition offers a new Learning Roadmap in each chapter to help students gain a full understanding. Students are able to focus on key concepts, make connections to other concepts, and see where the material is leading. Helpful learning tools like the section-ending "Take-Home Messages" and the on-page running glossary ensure they grasp key points. Carefully balancing accessibility and the level of detail, the authors enable students to go beyond rote memorization and prepare them to make important decisions in life that require an understanding of biology and the process of science.

Features

  • The clear writing style engages students and makes the material accessible without glossing over the science—even with the most formidable topics.

  • The visually-appealing and accurate art program helps visual learners with step-by-step art, "Figure It Out" images, and animated figures.

  • "Take-Home Message" at the end of each section poses a question that reflects the critical content of the section and answers the question in bulleted list format so students grasp the key concepts.

  • Data Analysis Activities provide students with the opportunity to work with real data, further strengthening analytical skills and providing insight into contemporary research.

  • "How Would You Vote?" questions demonstrate the personal relevance of the concepts and ask students to consider biology-related news, explore the facts behind the issue, apply knowledge, and cast a vote.

About the Author

Cecie Starr

For decades, Cecie Starr has been known as one of the best-selling biology textbook authors. Her texts, appreciated for their clarity in both the written word and the visual representation of biological concepts, include multiple editions of BIOLOGY: THE UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE, BIOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS, and BIOLOGY TODAY AND TOMORROW. Her original dream was to become an architect. Instead of building houses, she now builds, with care and attention to detail, texts based on this philosophy: "I invite students into a chapter through an intriguing story. Once inside, they get the great windows that biologists construct on the world of life. Biology is not just another house. It is a conceptual mansion. I hope to do it justice."

Ralph Taggart

Ralph Taggart, Former Chair of Biological Sciences at Michigan State University, Ralph Taggert is now the chair of Geological Sciences. Professor Taggart, known for his outstanding research in Paleobotany, has taught the general biology course for over 20 years.

Christine Evers

Christine Evers has been providing tools for biology education for more than 20 years. Before becoming a textbook author, she provided content for Genentech’s Access Excellence website and developed digital course materials for a variety of publishers. She received her undergraduate education at SUNY Stony Brook and did graduate work at Yale University.
