Summary

BIOLOGYis an authoritative majors textbook focusing on evolution as a unifying theme. Volume I covers Chemistry, Cell Biology, and Genetics; Volume II covers Plant and Animal Biology; and Volume III covers Evolution, Diversity, and Ecology. BIOLOGYis distinguished from other texts by its strong emphasis on natural selection and the evolutionary process that explains biodiversity.
