Written specially for students following the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, Biology for the IB Diploma is a major new textbook covering the latest syllabus requirements for this experimental science. Chapters are presented in syllabus order and their content reflects the necessary coverage of all core Topics and Options for students at both Standard and Higher levels. Throughout, the processes of science and something of its history are introduced selectively to illustrate the possibilities and limitations of science. * Chapters open with a list of 'Starting points' that summarise essential concepts. * Topics and Options coverage accurately reflects the Objectives and Action Verbs in which syllabus assessment statements are phrased. * Material for Standard level and Higher level is clearly identified. * Text is written in straightforward language with key terms simply defined, and examples are drawn from a wide range of international sources. * Main sections specify the syllabus sub-topic being addressed, making links between the text and syllabus content self-evident. * Photographs, electron micrographs and full-colour illustrations complement the text, and illustrate principles and processes in context. * Self-assessment questions and typical exam questions aid comprehension and familiarise students with the syllabus requirements, improving exam performance. * Links to Theory of Knowledge provide opportunities for cross-curriculum study. * Extension boxes broaden information beyond the core requirements. * Includes a chapter on the integration of theory with practicals and projects and their presentation for Internal Assessment, written by a guest author, Gary Seston, an experienced IB teacher and examiner. * The glossary provides an invaluable reference for students.

The author, Chris Clegg, is an experienced teacher of Biology and has written many internationally-respected textbooks for pre-university courses.Review:
One word sums my opinion about this book- awesome! I currently own this one and the course companion by Andrew Allott and I have to say this book is so much better. The first thing I like about this book is that the diagrams are in colour... Secondly, when explaining a process, the book gives both a flow diagram of the process and sentence descriptions. I find that this enhances my understanding of everything so much more. -- Student, IB Damned site 20100304 This is the my favourite Biology book which I have come across so far. There is masses of information that is all very useful and easy enough to understand... Diagrams in the book are also very helpful for helping to explain some trickier things like The Krebs Cycle. I would recommend this book to all Biology Students, both at Standard Level and Higher Level. --Student, IB Damned site 20100216
