Overview

Learn how to think and engage like a scientist! BIOLOGY: THE DYNAMIC SCIENCE, Third Edition, allows you to develop a deep understanding of the core concepts in Biology and builds a strong foundation for future courses. The authors explain complex ideas clearly and describe how biologists collect and interpret evidence to test hypotheses about the living world. Russell, Hertz, and McMillan will spark your curiosity about living systems instead of burying it under a mountain of disconnected facts. You will learn what scientists know about the living world, how they know it, and what they still need to learn. The accompanying Aplia for Biology complements the book by enabling you to go beyond rote memorization and gain a true understanding of key concepts.
