From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: This best-selling introductory book, widely praised for its lively writing style and impeccable scientific presentation, has been revised to reflect the changing dynamics of introductory biology. Emphasizing concepts over facts and critical thinking over memorization, Life on Earth presents the dynamic processes at work in biology and conveys the relevance and excitement of this discipline to readers. Key Topics: Centered on Concepts—Life on Earth brings concepts to the foreground rather than obscuring them with unnecessary detail; Applying the Concepts sections include creative problems (over 60% new) that ask readers to apply critical thinking skills to real world scenarios; at least 2 questions per chapter directly examine the impact of science and technology upon society; by capturing the wonder of “why?”, connects with readers and their first hand experience as a foundation upon which to learn concepts; conveys the dynamic process of science and discovery, emphasizing the people and processes behind the science; topics from “Scientific Inquiry” include DNA fingerprinting, the use of biotechnology in prenatal diagnosis, and using molecular genetics to investigate evolutionary relationships; by beginning with DNA and molecular genetics, the book captures reader interest by building on a familiar high- impact topic; book also clarifies the unifying threads of the discipline.
