Intended to complement an introductory biology text in either a major or non-majors course, this collection of modern and classic essays contains a wide range of biology articles. This reader, which covers all areas of biology, stresses reading and writing as tools for learning about biology. Students are carefully guided to help them discover and communicate information. Features: * A wide variety of articles are provided for each biological topic giving instructors the flexibility to choose. These articles have been selected by introductory biology professors. * Articles are prefaced by background material about the article - context of discovery, impact of discovery, author biography, and so forth. This motivates students' interest and creates a context so as to increase understanding. * Questions which accompany the readings encourage critical thinking and help students link seemingly unrelated biological topics. * Review checklists at the end of every chapter and questions at the end of every article help students track their progress, evaluate what they've learned, and relate that information to material they have covered in the course.
