The science of biology evolves. The science classroom and lab evolve. In this edition, as always, Life: The Science of Biology evolves with them, in innovative, authoritative, and captivating ways.

From the first edition to the present, Life has set the standard as the most balanced experiment-based introductory biology text. This edition builds on this legacy, again teaching fundamental concepts and the latest developments by taking students step by step through the research that revealed them.
