Summary

Botany: An Introduction to Plant Biology, Third Edition provides an updated, thorough overview of the fundamentals of botany. The topics and chapters are organized in a sequence that is easy to follow, beginning with the most familiar -- structure -- and proceeding to the less familiar -- metabolism -- then finishing with those topics that are probably the least familiar to most beginning students -- genetics, evolution, the diversity of organisms, and ecology. Plant Biology Tutor CD-ROM - Now included with every copy purchased from Jones and Bartlett Publishers. Throughout the text, three key principles are stressed: bull; bull;evolution by natural selection bull;analysis of botanical phenomenon bull;the diversity of structures and metabolisms In addition, the author believes that a knowledge of evolution by natural selection is essential for understanding biological structures and processes and therefore places emphasis on Evolution by Natural Selection.
