HOEFNAGELS: BIOLOGY: THE ESSENTIALS

Mariëlle Hoefnagels presents up-to-date information using a scientific approach and relevant examples to illustrate the basic biological concepts. Mariëlle’s focus on evolutionary processes and implications aid a cross-disciplinary approach to the study of Biology, which will help students make connections and grasp the importance and relevance of biology in their lives.

BIOLOGY EXPLAINED YOUR WAY - In writing this book Mariëlle has maintained a TOTAL FOCUS ON THE STUDENT and what they need to be successful in this course by providing the tools and direction needed to support understanding and learning, not memorizing. Her primary goal has been to simplify the more complicated biological content to the elements that students need to actually understand it.

  • WANT TO DELIVER AN ESSENTIAL OVERVIEW? The early sections of the chapters serve as an overview that introduces the importance and overall result of the process but skips the detail.
  • WANT TO DELIVER A BIT MORE DEPTH? The remaining sections are available as an option for those instructors who want to teach more.
  • COMPLETE INTEGRATION OF TEXT AND DIGITAL: A variety of these hallmark Hoefnagels features blend incredibly well with the Connect digital platform and enhance the ever evolving delivery methods of our content.

    Users who purchase Connect receive access to the full online eBook version of the textbook.
