Summary

The Third Edition of Biology: Science for Life with Physiology continues to draw readers into biology through engaging stories that make difficult topics more accessible and understandable. Colleen Belk and Virginia Borden strive to make teaching and learning biology a better experience from both sides of the desk. The authors draw from their teaching experiences to create a bookwith a flowing narrative and innovative features that require readers to become more active participants in their learning. Each chapter presents the material through a story that draws from real life examples, making the reading more engaging and accessible to todayrs"s readers. These stories strive to demystify topics found in biology. Can Science Cure the Common Cold? Introduction to the Scientific Method, Are We Alone in the Universe? Water, Biochemistry, and Cells, Diet. Cells and Metabolism, Life in the Greenhouse: Photosynthesis Cellular Respiration, and Global Warming,Cancer: DNA Synthesis, Mitosis, and Meiosis, Are You Only as Smart as Your Genes? Mendelian and Quantitative Genetics, DNA Detective: Complex Patterns of Inheritance and DNA Fingerprinting, Gene Expression, Mutation and Cloning: Genetically Modified Organisms, Where Did We Come From? The Evidence for Evolution, An Evolving Enemy: Natural Selection, Who Am I? Species and Races, Prospecting for Biological Gold: Biodiversity and Classification, Is the Human Population Too Large? Population Ecology,Conserving Biodiversity: Community and Ecosystem Ecology, Where Do You Live? Climate and Biomes, Organ Donation: Tissues, Organs, and Organ Systems, Clearing the Air: Respiratory, Cardiovascular, and Excretory Systems, Will Mad Cow Disease Become an Epidemic? Immune System, Bacteria, Viruses, and Other Pathogens, Sex Differences and Athleticism: Endocrine, Skeletal, and Muscular Systems, Is There Something in the Water?

Author Biography

Colleen Belk and Virginia Borden Maier have been colleagues and collaborators for more than thirteen years. Both authors have adopted teaching styles at their respective universities, the University of Minnesota Duluth and St. John Fisher College, that capitalize on students’ natural curiosity about high-interest topics such as dieting, global warming, and organ donation to effectively teach fundamental course topics such as cell biology, photosynthesis, and physiology. Their classroom experience has informed every chapter to help students understand biological principles, develop critical thinking skills, apply biology to their own lives, and make the introductory course more enjoyable from both sides of the desk.

 

In addition to Biology: Science for Life, Colleen and Virginia are co-authors of Biology: Science for Life Laboratory Manual and Human Biology .

I am not the best at biology but having this book made everything make sense to me. Great textbook for biology cl[censored]. Also the price of it is just crazy cheap. I would suggest this book to everyone.
