Inquiry Into Life is written for the introductory-level student who would like to develop a working knowledge of biology. While the text covers the whole field of basic biology, it emphasizes the application of this knowledge to human concerns. Along with this approach, concepts and principles are stressed, rather than detailed, high-level scientific data and terminology. Each chapter presents the topic clearly, simply, and distinctly so that students can achieve a basic understanding of biology.

Every new copy of Inquiry Into Life will be packaged with a free copy of "Essential Study Partner CD-ROM.
