From the Publisher:

This best-selling introductory text, widely praised for its lively writing style and impeccable scientific presentation, has been revised to reflect the changing dynamics of introductory biology.

Provides an engaging and easy to use book with an innovative and interactive media program. It achieves a unique balance in emphasizing concepts without sacrificing scientific accuracy. The new MediaTutor, found at the end of each chapter, integrates the book and media by providing a brief description of the CD or WEB activity and the time requirement for completion.
