Overview

The Next Step in Biology

We are excited to present to you, BIOLOGY, written by Dr. Rob Brooker, Dr. Eric Widmaier, Dr. Linda Graham, and Dr. Peter Stiling; it is the next step in majors biology. In addition to being active researchers and experienced writers, the author team has taught majors biology for years.

The goal in launching a new text is to offer something better—a comprehensive, modern text featuring an evolutionary focus with an emphasis on scientific inquiry. We invite you to take a few moments to learn more about the many different ways this text is the next step in biology.
