Description

This 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. 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 with MasteringBiology(R), the most widely-used online assessment and tutorial program for biology.show more
