Dr Sutton's exciting text provides a comprehensive introduction to the core concepts of biology. Starting with an overview of the diversity of life, the author covers a range of subjects from the naming and grouping of organisms through natural selection, molecular and cell biology, genetics, reproduction, physiology, ecology and biotechnology. Written in a student-friendly style and with an emphasis on explaining concepts rather than cataloguing facts, the book is fully illustrated with copious diagrams and photographs. Exercises with answers are also included. Beginning students in biology or first-year undergraduates with biology as a subsidiary will find this book invaluable.

From the Back Cover:

'An impressive piece of work.' - Jon Turney, University College London
'It is lively, stimulating and commendably broad in its coverage.' - John Hanks, former Chief Examiner, A level Biology

'The major advantage that this publication offers over competitors lies in its everyday almost simple language and style. This is what makes it significantly different, with excellent analogies making theoretical ideas and concepts understandable to the taget audience...the author's explanations are clear and his questioning approach stimulates the reader and aids the realisation that much is left to be discovered and elucidated in biology.' - Kevin Edwardson, Science Coordinator, Sheffield College

This authoritative new text sets out to show that the important ideas in biology are exciting and relevant to everyday experience. Written in a clear and lively style, the book's emphasis is on explaining ideas, and on stressing the deep connections between different areas of biology.

Designed to be student- and teacher-friendly, the book features:
* connection boxes to enable students to locate useful background information
* chapter summaries
* on-page glossary of highlighted key terms
* exercises with answers
* information boxes detailing applications discussed in the text
* annotaded further reading lists
* figures and photographs illlustrating concepts referred to in the text

Biology is for you if you are:
* an undergraduate on a Foundation-level course in science
* a student on an Access course in Science
* a non-specialist for whom biology is a subsidiary subject
* open minded, fun-loving and like to get straight to the heart of the matter

About the Author:

JULIAN SUTTON teaches Biology at Torquay Boys' Grammar School, Devon. He trained at Pembroke College, Oxford, and Liverpool University. His PhD research was in the field of plant population ecology.
