Biology is a comprehensive introductory biology textbook for non-majors or mixed-majors courses that covers biology in a traditional order from the structure and function of the cell to the organization of the biosphere. The book, which centers on the evolution and diversity of organisms, is appropriate for a one- or two-semester course. Its concise, precise writing uses an economy of words to present the material as succinctly and clearly as possible, thereby enabling students to understand the concepts without necessarily asking the instructor to explain further.Every piece of artwork in Biology 9e is either new or revised. Additionally, scores of photographs are new to this edition. The new creative paging process retains the functional page spreads but enhances the role of art and photos in creating the most effective and appealing pages possible. Multi-level perspective figures combine macroscopic (e.g., section of intestine) and microscopic (micrograph slice of intestinal tissue) images to illustrate subject from larger to smaller. See body systems chapters for many examples. Phonetic pronunciations have been added to the GlossaryBioethical Issue topics end many chapters and present both side of contemporary issues such as the use of alternative medicines available over the counter. Connecting the Concepts boxes appear at the end of most chapters and establish connections between the concepts of the chapter and other concepts throughout the book.
