Clear, engaging, and visual, BIOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS equips non-biology majors with the science they’ll need in life! Renowned for its writing style and trendsetting art, the new edition includes an enhanced visual pedagogy, learning features, and media options. Helping visual learners, "Figure It Out" questions in many illustrations ensure students understand the concepts. The new Data Analysis Activities at the end of every chapter help students strengthen their analytical skills. New "Take Home Messages" ensure students grasp key concepts while special features like the chapter opening case studies and "How Would You Vote?" questions enliven the subject matter and make relevant connections between biology and real-life concerns. Helpful media options include the interactive Aplia program that connects with today’s students. Throughout this issues-oriented text, the authors emphasize that biology is an ongoing endeavor carried out by a diverse community of people and prepare students to make decisions that require an understanding of the process of science and basic biological principles.
