Starr and McMillan's HUMAN BIOLOGY, 8th Edition presents the core areas of human biology with an emphasis on not only the internal world, but how we impact our external world. Highlighting biology's relevance, each chapter opens with an "Impacts, Issues" reading on a human biology-related issue currently in the news. Within the chapter, users then learn the basic concepts which help them think critically about these issues. In addition, each chapter's "How Would You Vote?" question invites users to explore current issues and deepen their understanding through online exercises. By the end of the chapter, learners are asked to "Explore on Your Own", and participate in activities showing the impact of the content on their lives.

About the Author:

For the past two decades, Cecie Starr has been known as one of the best-selling biology textbook authors. Her texts, appreciated for their clarity in both the written word and the visual representation of biological concepts, include multiple editions of BIOLOGY: THE UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE, BIOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS, and BIOLOGY TODAY AND TOMORROW. Her original dream was to become an architect. Instead of building houses, she now builds, with care and attention to detail, incredible texts based on this philosophy: "I invite students into a chapter through an intriguing story. Once inside, they get the great windows that biologists construct on the world of life. Biology is not just another house. It is a conceptual mansion. I hope to do it justice."

Beverly McMillan has been a science writer for more than 25 years and is coauthor of a college text in human biology, now in its eighth edition. She was worked extensively in educational and commercial publishing, including 8 years in editorial management positions in the college divisions of Random House and McGraw-Hill. In a multifaceted freelance career, Bev also has written or coauthored 10 trade books, as well as story panels for exhibitions at the Science Museum of Virginia and the San Francisco Exploratorium. She has worked as a radio producer and speechwriter for the University of California system and as science writer and media relations advisor for the Virginia Institute of Marine Science of the College of William and Mary. She holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of California, Berkeley.
