Overview

Should there be warning labels on fast foods? Should SUV drivers pay extra taxes? Should employers be allowed to require drug testing of prospective employees? This introductory biology text helps you master biology while encouraging you to think about critical issues. The issues-oriented approach enlivens the subject matter and helps you grasp concepts by making connections between biology and real-life concerns. Here's how it works: An "Impacts, Issues" case study opens each chapter, focusing on a biology-related societal issue. You also view a short film that expands on the issue. Then each chapter's "How Would You Vote?" question, inspired by the case study, asks you to consider biology-related news, explore the facts behind the issue, apply your knowledge of biology, and cast a vote on the Web. You can also see state and nationwide voting tallies. This book has been widely praised for clear and engaging writing, art with step-by-step callouts, and terrific support from student media that all work together to help you "get" biology. Technology highlights include CengageNOW, an interactive online resource featuring personalized study plans and hundreds of animations, and an MP3 download of audio study tools that let you review concepts from the text anywhere!

Meet the Author

For the past two decades, Cecie Starr has been known as one of the best-selling biology textbook authors. Her texts, appreciated for their clarity in both the written word and the visual representation of biological concepts, include multiple editions of BIOLOGY: THE UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE, BIOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS, and BIOLOGY TODAY AND TOMORROW. Her original dream was to become an architect. Instead of building houses, she now builds, with care and attention to detail, incredible texts based on this philosophy: "I invite students into a chapter through an intriguing story. Once inside, they get the great windows that biologists construct on the world of life. Biology is not just another house. It is a conceptual mansion. I hope to do it justice."

    I found the book easy to follow (high school senior), but it lacked in depth detail of particular topics.

    very difficult book, how can high schoolers understand this

    I think I know sufficient high school chemistry and biochemistry being over 25 years in the business of biology physiology and medicine. I got in contact with this book, when my daughter in 9th grade had to read about molecules. This chapter is totally confusing with alkanes without explaining alcanes, sugars without explaining what a sugar is, polysugars without discerning why they are different, polyalcohols withot explaining what an alcohol is, fatty acids and then suddenly sex hormones and the casual existence of the double helix. This is the most confusing book I ever held in my hands. This book is neither useful as base line text nor to review specific biologic functions down to the molecular level. I would consider this at most as waste of paper.
