From its inception, this NSF-sponsored learning system was hailed as a welcome departure from traditional approaches, both in terms of organization and delivery of content. BioInquiry tells the story of the process of science, and so is organized to trace scientists' journey to biological understanding, beginning with Darwin and evolution. The Third Edition's unique integration of multimedia - developed in tandem with the text and designed provides additional dimension to key topics. The result is an integrated product that presents a more realistic approach to what non-science majors need to be informed citizens and scientifically literate consumers of information.

From the Back Cover:

Experience the story of biological understanding

Like any good tale, the excitement is in how the story unfolds-in the process of discovering how the situation is resolved, in the twists and turns of the plot, and in the personalities of its main characters. The same holds true for biology. That's why Nancy Pruitt and Larry Underwood's new Third Edition of BioInquiry is specifically designed to engage students in the story of biological understanding. This NSF-sponsored text and media package takes a discovery approach in which students lear5n about biology in the same timeline in which scientists have come to understand biology.

From the prepublication reviews:

"The [website] for the student, in its latest inception, is quite brilliant." - KAREN OCORR, University of Michigan

"I very much liked that the book emphasized the process of science..." - JOHN PETERS, College of Charleston

"The authors use evolution as a unifying theme in the book. This is wonderful." - BRAM MIDDELORP, Minneapolis Community and Technical College
