Presenting core concepts in a relevant context, Starr and McMillan's HUMAN BIOLOGY gives you a clear understanding of how the human body works and helps you make well-informed choices as a consumer and voter. Each chapter opens with a human biology-related issue currently in the news that highlights the relevance of the topic. You then learn the basic concepts which help you think critically about these issues. Useful learning tools such as section ending "Take-Home Messages" and a running glossary ensure that you will understand key concepts. At the end of the chapter, "How Would You Vote," "Future Focus," and "Explore on Your Own" sections demonstrate the impact and personal relevance of the content on your life.
