Summary

This best-selling text is the result of having established a strong dialogue with the biology community to meet the challenges of teaching undergraduates. Based on the dialogue, the authors have made biological concepts more relevant to students' lives, provided tools to actively engage students, and incorporated a chapter organizing system. Both WWW and CD-ROM icons have been placed in the chapters to connect the media supplements with the main text. Free Student CD-ROM.
