Overview

Neil Campbell and Jane Reece's BIOLOGY remains unsurpassed as the most successful majors biology textbook in the world. This text has invited more than 4 million students into the study of this dynamic and essential discipline.The authors have restructured each chapter around a conceptual framework of five or six big ideas. An Overview draws students in and sets the stage for the rest of the chapter, each numbered Concept Head announces the beginning of a new concept, and Concept Check questions at the end of each chapter encourage students to assess their mastery of a given concept. New Inquiry Figures focus students on the experimental process, and new Research Method Figures illustrate important techniques in biology. Each chapter ends with a Scientific Inquiry Question that asks students to apply scientific investigation skills to the content of the chapter.

Meet the Author

Neil A. Campbell combined the investigative nature of a research scientist with the soul of an experienced and caring teacher. He earned his M.A. in Zoology from UCLA and his Ph.D. in Plant Biology from the University of California, Riverside, where he received the Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2001. Dr. Campbell published numerous research articles on how certain desert plants thrive in salty soil and how sensitive plant (Mimosa) and other legumes move their leaves. His 30 years of teaching in diverse environments included general biology courses at Cornell University, Pomona College, and San Bernardino Valley College, where he received the college's first Outstanding Professor Award in 1986. Most recently Dr. Campbell was a visiting scholar in the Department of Botany and Plant Sciences at the University of California, Riverside. In addition to his authorship of this book, he coauthored Biology: Concepts & Connections and Essential Biology with Jane Reece. Each year, over 600,000 students worldwide use Campbell/Reece biology textbooks.

***

Jane B. Reece has worked in biology publishing since 1978, when she joined the editorial staff of Benjamin Cummings. Her education includes an A.B. in Biology from Harvard University, an M.S. in Microbiology from Rutgers University, and a Ph.D. in Bacteriology from the University of California, Berkeley. At UC Berkeley and later as a post-doctoral fellow in genetics at Stanford University, her research focused on genetic recombination in bacteria. Dr. Reece taught biology at Middlesex County College (New Jersey) and Queensborough Community College (New York). As an editor at Benjamin Cummings, Dr. Reece playedmajor roles in a number of successful textbooks. In addition to being a coauthor with Neil Campbell on BIOLOGY, Biology: Concepts & Connections, and Essential Biology, she coauthored The World of the Cell, Third Edition, with W.M. Becker and M.F.

    Get the green 6th edition of this!

    I'm taking AP Bio this year, and so far, I can grasp almost everything the book coves. That's really good for someone who has no skills in Science and plans on majoring in English! The book takes time to read, but reading helps you better understand the material. Be patient and go for it!

    The Gold Standard

    This is simply the most concise and excellent book for students of biology available. High school and college students alike can appreciate it. I used this book (in its fifth edition) in my AP biology course, and continued using it throughout college. Having studied under Dr. Campbell and his colleagues, one can truly appreciate the simplicity of the book. There truly is no other option!

    Poorly Written

    The text is all jumbled together. I cannot understand this mess of biology. I believe the book needs better organization because it seems to jump around a lot. It leaves a hole in my head.

    Best Bio Book Ever!

    I used the Sixth Edition in AP Bio, and now that I'm taking 100-level biology class at a University, I'm very happy that I kept it! It's extremely detailed and very clear- it fills in the conceptual gaps left by other Biology textbooks, such as Freeman's textbook.

    Campbell is amazing.

    I LOVED the 6th edition, and now that the 7th is out, I'm excited. I skimmed through some of the chapters of this book, and the organization seems a little different, but easier to understand. All I've got to say is, Campbell might as well be referred to as the Holy Biowriter. Oh man.
