The seventh Edition of this book continues to be the most accurate, current, and pedagogically effective non-majors text on the market. This extensive revision builds upon the book's best-selling success with exciting new and updated features. Key concept modules, seamlessly combining text and illustrations, help students keep the big picture in mind and pace their learning, while making it easy for professors to assign selected sections within a chapter.

Also within the text, a number of new chapter opening essays, Connection Modules, and new Evolution Connection Modules help students recognize and appreciate the connections between biology and the world they live in. BioFlix animations, available on the companion website and as part of the instructor resources, offer students unprecedented help in understanding important topics and help invigorate lectures, assignments, or online courses.

This book helps students to read, visualize, and synthesize information taught in introductory biology?

Read: A uniquely structured and carefully designed Modular Approach paces student learning in manageable steps.

Visualize: Step-by-step figures and unique visual summaries give students a visual way to learn and review content. Innovative 3-D BioFlix animations on the companion website help students visualize the most challenging topics in biology, such as cellular respiration.

Synthesize: Unique 'Connecting the Concepts' exercises at the end of each chapter prompt students to construct for themselves the connections between the concepts they've studied. Are you looking for a text that is scientifically accurate and current?

This book continues to present concepts with scientific accuracy at a level that the introductory student will understand.

Connection modules link biology to students' lives on topics such as the production of tissues and organs for transplant. Chapter opening essays, including 19 new ones, focus on topics of interest, such as phytoremediation methods used to clean up toxic wastes in New Orleans and the biochemical basis of monogamy in some mammals.
