    DescriptionThis package contains Campbell's Biology 9th Edition, access to Mastering Biology, and access to all 5 Mastering Biology Virtual lab rooms. Campbell's Biology 9th Edition is a Pearson Global Edition. The Pearson Editorial team worked closely with educators around the world to include content especially relevant to students outside of the United States. Helping Students Make Connections Across Biology Campbell BIOLOGY Global Edition is the unsurpassed leader in introductory biology. The text's hallmark values--accuracy, currency, and passion for teaching and learning--have made it the most successful introductory biology book for eight consecutive editions. Building on the Key Concepts chapter framework of previous editions, Campbell BIOLOGY Global Edition helps students keep sight of the "big picture" by encouraging them to: * Make connections across chapters in the text, from molecules to ecosystems, with new Make Connections Questions * Make connections between classroom learning, research breakthroughs, and the real world with new Impact Figures * Make connections to the overarching theme of evolution in every chapter with new Evolution sections * Make connections at a higher cognitive level through new Summary of Key Concepts Questions and Write About a Theme Questions * Make connections outside of class withMasteringBiology(R), the most widely-used online assessment and tutorial program for biology Campbell BIOLOGY Global Edition makes biology more globally relevant through: *Significant new material in the diversity and ecology units, contributed by educators from around the globe. *International examples and photos, replacing some North American ones * Interviews with prominent international biologists, replacing some of the North American interviews MasteringBiology(R) Virtual Labs The book comes with an access code to MasteringBiology(R) and MasteringBiology(R) Virtual Labs. The MasteringBiology(R) Virtual Labs online environment promotes critical thinking skills using virtual experiments and explorations that may be difficult to perform in a wet lab environment due to time, cost, or safety concerns. *MasteringBiology(R) Virtual Labs offer unique learning experiences in the areas of microscopy, molecular biology, genetics, ecology, and systematics. * Choose from 20--30 automatically-graded, "pre-set" lab activities that are ready-to-assign to students, or create your own from scratch. * Each "pre-set" lab provides an assignable lab report with questions that are automatically graded and recorded in the MasteringBiology gradebook.

    Author Information
    Jane B. Reece As Neil Campbell's longtime collaborator, Jane Reece has participated in every edition of BIOLOGY. Earlier, Jane taught biology at Middlesex County College and Queensborough Community College. Her research as a doctoral student and postdoc focused on genetic recombination in bacteria. Besides her work on BIOLOGY, she has been a coauthor on Biology: Concepts & Connections, Essential Biology, and The World of the Cell. Lisa A. Urry Lisa Urry (Units 1-3) is a professor and developmental biologist, and recent Chair of the Biology Department, at Mills College. After graduating from Tufts University with a double major in Biology and French, Lisa completed her Ph.D. in molecular and developmental biology at MIT. She has published a number of research papers, most of them focused on gene expression during embryonic and larval development in sea urchins. Lisa is also deeply committed to promoting opportunities for women in science education and research. Michael L. Cain Michael Cain (Units 4 and 5) is an ecologist and evolutionary biologist who is now writing full time. Michael earned a joint degree in Biology and Math at Bowdoin College, an M.Sc. from Brown University, and a Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Cornell University. As a faculty member at New Mexico State University and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, he taught a wide range of courses including introductory biology, ecology, evolution, botany, and conservation biology. . Michael is the author of dozens of scientific papers on topics that include foraging behavior in insects and plants, long-distance seed dispersal, and speciation in crickets. In addition to his work on Campbell BIOLOGY, Michael is also the lead author of an ecology textbook. Steven A. Wasserman Steve Wasserman (Unit 7) is a professor at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He earned his A.B. in Biology from Harvard University and his Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from MIT. Through his research on regulatory pathway mechanisms in the fruit fly Drosophila, Steve has contributed to the fields of developmental biology, reproduction, and immunity. As a faculty member at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and UCSD, he has taught genetics, development, and physiology to undergraduate, graduate, and medical students. He has also served as the research mentor for more than a dozen doctoral students and more than 50 aspiring scientists at the undergraduate and high school levels. Steve has been the recipient of distinguished scholar awards from both the Markey Charitable Trust and the David and Lucille Packard Foundation. In 2007, he received UCSD's Distinguished Teaching Award for undergraduate teaching. Peter V. Minorsky Peter Minorsky (Unit 6) is a professor at Mercy College in New York, where he teaches evolution, ecology, botany, and introductory biology. He received his B.A. in Biology from Vassar College and his Ph.D. in Plant Physiology from Cornell University. He is also the science writer for the journal Plant Physiology. After a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, Peter taught at Kenyon College, Union College, Western Connecticut State University, and Vassar College. He is an electrophysiologist who studies plant responses to stress. Peter received the 2008 Award for Teaching Excellence at Mercy College. Robert B. Jackson Rob Jackson (Unit 8) is a professor of biology and Nicholas Chair of Environmental Sciences at Duke University. Rob holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Rice University, as well as M.S. degrees in Ecology and Statistics and a Ph.D. in Ecology from Utah State University. Rob directed Duke's Program in Ecology for many years and just finished a term as the Vice President of Science for the Ecological Society of America. Rob has received numerous awards, including a Presidential Early Career Award in Science and Engineering from the National Science Foundation. He also enjoys popular writing, having published a trade book about the environment, The Earth Remains Forever, and two books of poetry for children, Animal Mischief and Weekend Mischief. Neil A. Campbell Neil 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. Neil published numerous research articles on desert and coastal plants and how the 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. Neil 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. For the Ninth Edition of this book, we honor Neil's contributions to biology education by adopting the title Campbell BIOLOGY.
