Summary

Studying biology in today's fast-paced environment where new research is cropping up daily is exciting--and also a bit daunting, unless you have the right textbook to help you make sense of it all. Popular with students at colleges nationwide, Solomon, Berg, and Martin's BIOLOGY is often described as the best text available for learning biology. Filled with resources to guide your study, the Eighth Edition brings clarity to key concepts as it draws you into the excitement of new research in genetics, cell communication, evolution, and many other topics. The book's in-chapter Learning System is like a built-in study guide, focusing your attention on key learning objectives. Many of the text's colorful illustrations are correlated with animated figures online so you can interactively study and reinforce your understanding of complex processes.
