Learn how to think and engage like a scientist! BIOLOGY: THE DYNAMIC SCIENCE, Second Edition, provides you with a deep understanding of the core concepts in Biology, building a strong foundation for additional study. In a fresh presentation, the authors explain complex ideas clearly and describe how biologists collect and interpret evidence to test hypotheses about the living world. Russell, Hertz, and McMillan will spark your curiosity about living systems instead of burying it under a mountain of disconnected facts. You will learn what scientists know about the living world, how they know it, and what they still need to learn. The accompanying Aplia for Biology interactively guides you through the thought processes and procedures that scientists use in their research and helps you apply and synthesize content from the text. Overall, you will learn how to think like a scientist and engage in the scientific process yourself.
