9780840061669: Human Biology, 9th Edition

Presenting core concepts in a relevant context, Starr and McMillan's HUMAN BIOLOGY gives you a clear understanding of how the human body works and helps you make well-informed choices as a consumer and voter. Each chapter opens with a human biology-related issue currently in the news that highlights the relevance of the topic. You then learn the basic concepts which help you think critically about these issues. Useful learning tools such as section ending "Take-Home Messages" and a running glossary ensure that you will understand key concepts. At the end of the chapter, "How Would You Vote," "Future Focus," and "Explore on Your Own" sections demonstrate the impact and personal relevance of the content on your life.

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.
