Summary

Supports and motivates readers as they learn to think like a biologist. Building upon Scott Freemanrs"s unique narrative style that incorporates the Socratic approach and draws readers into thinking like a biologist, theFourth Editionhas been carefully refined to motivate and support a broader range of learners as they are introduced to new concepts and encouraged to develop and practice new skills. Each page of the book is designed in the spirit of active learning and instructional reinforcement, equipping novice learners with tools that help them advance in the course-from recognizing essential information in highlighted sections to demonstrating and applying their understanding of concepts in practice exercises that gradually build in difficulty. New to Freemanrs"s MasteringBiology reg; online tutorial and assessment system are ten classic experiment tutorials and automatically-graded assignment options that are adapted directly from content and exercises in the book. Package Components: Biological Science, Fourth Edition MasteringBiologyreg; with Pearson eText Student Access Kit Key Topics: Biology and the Tree of Life, Water and Carbon: The Chemical Basis of Life, Protein Structure and Function, Nucleic Acids and the RNA World, An Introduction to Carbohydrates, Lipids, Membranes, and the First Cells, Inside the Cell, Cell-Cell Interactions Cellular Respiration and Fermentation, Photosynthesis, The Cell Cycle, Meiosis, Mendel and the Gene, DNA and the Gene: Synthesis and Repair, How Genes Work, Transcription, RNA Processing, and Translation, Control of Gene Expression in Bacteria Control of Gene Expression in Eukaryotes, Analyzing and Engineering Genes, Genomics, Principles of Development An Introduction to Animal Development, An Introduction to Plant Development, Evolution by Natural Selection, Evolutionary, Processes, Speciation, Phylogenies and the History of Life, Bacteria and Archaea, Protists, Green Algae and Land Plants, Fungi, An Introduction to Animals, Protostome Animals, Deuterostome Animals, Viruses, Plant Form and Function, Water and Sugar Transport in Plants, Plant Nutrition, Plant Sensory Systems, Signals, and Responses, Plant Reproduction, Animal Form and Function, Water and Electrolyte Balance in Animals, Animal Nutrition, Gas Exchange and Circulation, Electrical Signals in Animals, Animal Sensory Systems and Movement, Chemical Signals in Animals, Animal Reproduction, The Immune System in Animals, An Introduction to Ecology, Behavioral Ecology , Population Ecology, Community Ecology, Ecosystems, Biodiversity and Conservation Intended for readers interested in gaining a basic understanding of biology

Author Biography

Scott Freeman

Scott Freeman received his Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of Washington and was subsequently awarded an Alfred P. Sloan Postdoctoral Fellowship in Molecular Evolution at Princeton University. His current research focuses on the scholarship of teaching and learning and he recently published two papers on his work: (1) how active learning and peer teaching techniques increase student learning and improve performance in introductory biology (Freeman, S., E. O’Connor, J.W. Parks, M. Cunningham, D. Hurley, D. Haak, C. Dirks, and M.P. Wenderoth. 2007. Prescribed active learning increases performance in introductory biology. CBE—Life Sciences Education 6: 132-139.); and (2) how the levels of exam questions vary among introductory biology courses, standardized post-graduate entrance exams, and professional school courses (Zheng, A.Y., J.K. Lawhorn, T. Lumley, and S. Freeman. 2007. Applications of Bloom’s Taxonomy Debunks the “MCAT Myth.” Science  25 January 2008: 414-415).

 

Kim Quillin

Illustrator, Kim Quillin, combines expertise in biology and information design to create lucid visual representations of biological principles. She received her B.A. in Biology at Oberlin College and her Ph.D. in Integrative Biology from the University of California, Berkeley (as a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellow), and has taught undergraduate biology at both schools. Students and instructors alike have praised Kim’s illustration programs for Biological Science, as well as Biology: A Guide to the Natural World, by David Krogh, and Biology: Science for Life, by Colleen Belk and Virginia Borden, for their success at the visual communication of biology. Kim is a lecturer in the Department of Biological Sciences at Salisbury University.
