MariŽlle's focus on evolutionary processes and implicationsaid a cross-disciplinary approachto the study of Biology, which will help students make connections and grasp the importance and relevance of biology in their lives. BIOLOGY EXPLAINED YOUR WAY- In writing this book MariŽlle has maintained a TOTAL FOCUS ON THE STUDENTand what they need to be successful in this course by providing the tools and direction needed to support understanding and learning, not memorizing. Her primary goal has been to simplify the more complicated biological content to the elements that students need to actually understand it. WANT TO DELIVER AN ESSENTIAL OVERVIEW?The early sections of the chapters serve as an overview that introduces the importance and overall result of the process but skips the detail. WANT TO DELIVER A BIT MORE DEPTH?The remaining sections are available as an option for those instructors who want to teach more.
