Description

Since its original publication in 1975, Biology: A Human Approach has successfully introduced basic biological principles to non-science majors. It motivates students by relating biological concepts to areas of immediate human concern such as genetic engineering, cancer, organ transplants, immunity, and the environment. Praised for its lucid and engaging presentation, it combines solid coverage with beautiful and informative illustrations, and develops ideas within each chapter to a mature level of understanding. For this edition, the authors have thoroughly revised each chapter, developed many new illustrations, and introduced a new chapter on the biology of skin. Three infrequently used chapters from the previous edition, surveying the plant and animal kingdoms, have been deleted.show more
