The Third Edition of Biology: Science for Life continues to draw readers into biology through engaging stories that make difficult topics more accessible and understandable. Colleen Belk and Virginia Borden strive to make teaching and learning biology a better experience from both sides of the desk. The authors draw from their teaching experiences to create a book with a flowing narrative and innovative features that require readers to become more active participants in their learning. Each chapter presents the material through a story that draws from real life examples, making the reading more engaging and accessible to today’s readers. These stories strive to demystify topics found in biology.
The Third Edition of this book features a completely re-designed art program and uses the authors’ teaching experiences to create student-centered features such as the new Savvy Reader, Visualize This, and Stop and Stretch to motivate and encourage reader learning. The new A Closer Look allows instructors the opportunity to expand on certain important biological topics. For instructors who would like to cover Animal Structure and Function and Plant Biology, an alternate edition of this book, Biology: Science for Life with Physiology, is also available.

naAbout the Author:
Colleen Belk and Virginia Borden Maier have been colleagues and collaborators for more than thirteen years. Both authors have adopted teaching styles at their respective universities, the University of Minnesota Duluth and St. John Fisher College, that capitalize on students’ natural curiosity about high-interest topics such as dieting, global warming, and organ donation to effectively teach fundamental course topics such as cell biology, photosynthesis, and physiology. Their classroom experience has informed every chapter to help students understand biological principles, develop critical thinking skills, apply biology to their own lives, and make the introductory course more enjoyable from both sides of the desk.
In addition to Biology: Science for Life, Colleen and Virginia are co-authors of Biology: Science for Life Laboratory Manual and Human Biology .
