Overview

Coleen Belk and Virginia Borden Maier have helped students demystify biology for nearly twenty years in the classroom and nearly ten years with their book, Biology: Science for Life with Physiology. In the new Fourth Edition, they continue to use stories and current issues, such as discussion of cancer to teach cell division, to connect biology to student’s lives. Learning Outcomes are new to this edition and integrated within the book to help professors guide students’ reading and to help students assess their understanding of biology.

A new Chapter 3, “Is It Possible to Supplement Your Way to Better Health? Nutrients and Membrane Transport,” offers an engaging storyline and focused coverage on micro- and macro-nutrients, antioxidants, passive and active transport, and exocytosis and endocytosis.

This package contains:

Meet the Author

Colleen Belk and Virginia Borden Maier have been colleagues and collaborators for more than thirteen years. Both authors have adopted teaching styles at their respective universities, the University of Minnesota Duluth and St. John Fisher College, that capitalize on students’ natural curiosity about high-interest topics such as dieting, global warming, and organ donation to effectively teach fundamental course topics such as cell biology, photosynthesis, and physiology. Their classroom experience has informed every chapter to help students understand biological principles, develop critical thinking skills, apply biology to their own lives, and make the introductory course more enjoyable from both sides of the desk.

In addition to Biology: Science for Life, Colleen and Virginia are co-authors of Biology: Science for Life Laboratory Manual and Human Biology .
