Renowned for its writing style and trendsetting art, BIOLOGY: THE UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE provides real-world applications and helps you think critically about them. The new edition offers a new Learning Roadmap in each chapter to help you gain a full understanding. You will be able to focus on key concepts, make connections to other concepts, and see where the material is leading. Helpful learning tools like the section-ending "Take-Home Messages" and the on-page running glossary ensure that you will grasp key points. Carefully balancing accessibility and the level of detail, the authors enable you to go beyond rote memorization and prepare you to make important decisions in life that require an understanding of biology and the process of science.

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."
