In the new edition of BIOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS, authors Cecie Starr, Christine A. Evers, and Lisa Starr have partnered with the National Geographic Society to develop a text designed to engage and inspire. This trendsetting text introduces the key concepts of biology to non-biology majors using clear explanations and unparalleled visuals. While mastering core concepts, each chapter challenges students to question what they read and apply the concepts learned, providing students with the critical thinking skills and science knowledge they need in life. Renowned for its writing style the new edition is enhanced with exclusive content from the National Geographic Society, including over 200 new photos and illustrations. New People Matter sections in most chapters profile National Geographic Explorers and Grantees who are making significant contributions in their field, showing students how concepts in the chapter are being applied in biological research. Each chapter concludes with an 'Application' section highlighting real-world uses of biology and helping students make connections to chapter content.

For two decades, Cecie Starr secured her place as one of the bestselling 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, but now, instead of building houses, she 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."
Lisa Starr (B.A. in Chemistry/Biochemistry, University of California at San Diego, Revelle College) became an expert in molecular and cellular biology as she helped to build a veterinary virology research program at the biotech firm Syntro. She also spent seven years at The Scripps Research Institute and founded two other biotech firms. Since 1997, Lisa has been responsible for much of the art in the Starr BIOLOGY textbooks and has been a coauthor of the series since 2004.
