This authoritative, introductory text presents biological concepts through the research that revealed them. It covers the full range of topics with an integrated experimental focus that flows naturally from the narrative. This approach helps to bring the drama of classic and cutting-edge research to the classroom, but always in the context of reinforcing core ideas and the innovative scientific thinking behind them. Students should experience biology not just as a litany of facts or a highlight reel of experiments, but as a rich, coherent discipline. The new edition combines a contemporary view of the discipline with innovative teaching and learning features - offering new chapters and essays, an enhanced art programme, and media and supplements.
