Renowned for its writing style and trendsetting art, BIOLOGY: THE UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE engages students with relevant applications and encourages critical thinking. The new edition offers a new Learning Roadmap in each chapter to help students gain a full understanding. Students are able to focus on key concepts, make connections to other concepts, and see where the material is leading. Helpful learning tools like the section-ending "Take-Home Messages" and the on-page running glossary ensure they grasp key points. Carefully balancing accessibility and the level of detail, the authors enable students to go beyond rote memorization and prepare them to make important decisions in life that require an understanding of biology and the process of science.
