Summary

Used by over a million science students, the Mastering platform is the most effective and widely used online tutorial, homework, and assessment system for the sciences. Pearson eText gives you access to the text whenever and wherever you can access the Internet. The eText pages look exactly like the printed text, and include powerful interactive and customization functions. This is the product access code card for MasteringBiology with Pearson eText and does not include the actual bound book. Known for its thorough coverage of diversity, ecology, and environmental issues, this comprehensive book engages you with integrated, relevant case studies, and challenges you with thought-provoking questions throughout each chapter. The fully revised Biology: Life on Earth with Physiology, Ninth Edition, has the same friendly writing style appreciated by thousands of students, but with greater emphasis on engaging, real-world applications. New to this edition are “Case Study Continued” sections, which connect a chapter’s case study to relevant biological topics covered in the chapter, and “Have you ever wondered?” features that respond to commonly asked questions from students. Thoroughly revised illustrations and expanded critical thinking questions have been added to each chapter and are supplemented by the powerful new MasteringBiology" program that helps students make effective use of their study time outside of the classroom. For courses not covering plant and animal anatomy & physiology, an alternate version– Biology: Life on Earth, Ninth Edition –is also available.
