Biology Book Excerpt:

Cecie Starr and Ralph Taggart are among the most successful authors in introductory, biological science instruction because of their lively approach, engaging writing style, current coverage of the breadth of biology's topics, and their unique illustrations. In this Tenth Edition of Biology: The Unity and Diversity of Life, the authors use the important connections among molecular structure, biological function, and evolution to encourage student understanding instead of memorization. For example, Chapter 1 includes a preview of life's unity and diversity with an evolutionary perspective. Similar sections in Chapters 3, 5, and 6, on the structure and function of enzymes and other molecules, prepare students for chapters on cell structure and metabolism, genetics, evolution, anatomy, and physiology. This background prepares students to understand the power of comparative molecular studies in clarifying evolutionary relationships. Connections essays (28 in all) focus on this new integration of molecular structure, function, and evolution. The first essay (1.4) answers an important question: How can life display both unity and diversity? It shows how the theory of evolution by natural selection connects the two. Other essays consider evolutionary interplays between infectious agents and their hosts; cloning and genetically engineered mammals, the evolution of life over the past 3.8 billion years, and archaeopteryx and the ancestry of whales (to show that interpreting the past scientifically requires an intellectual shift). Improvements in the media package meet the high standards instructors have come to expect. There is a new version of the complimentary Interactive Concepts in Biology Student CD-ROM with nearly 800 interactions to clarify and reinforce key concepts. For instructors, there is a Multimedia Manager with art and graphics from the text already in PowerPoint format, as well as CNN Today video clips (294 in all), now available digitally.

Unifying Biology Book Excerpt:

Unifying Biology offers a historical reconstruction of one of the most important yet elusive episodes in the history of modern science: the evolutionary synthesis of the 1930s and 1940s. For more than seventy years after Darwin proposed his theory of evolution, it was hotly debated by biological scientists. It was not until the 1930s that opposing theories were finally refuted and a unified Darwinian evolutionary theory came to be widely accepted by biologists. Using methods gleaned from a variety of disciplines, Vassiliki Betty Smocovitis argues that the evolutionary synthesis was part of the larger process of unifying the biological sciences. At the same time that scientists were working toward a synthesis between Darwinian selection theory and modern genetics, they were, according to the author, also working together to establish an autonomous community of evolutionists. Smocovitis suggests that the drive to unify the sciences of evolution and biology was part of a global philosophical movement toward unifying knowledge. In developing her argument, she pays close attention to the problems inherent in writing the history of evolutionary science by offering historiographical reflections on the practice of history and the practice of science. Drawing from some of the most exciting recent approaches in science studies and cultural studies, she argues that science is a culture, complete with language, rituals, texts, and practices. Unifying Biology offers not only its own new synthesis of the history of modern evolution, but also a new way of "doing history."

Human Biology Book Excerpt:

Starr and McMillan's HUMAN BIOLOGY, 8th Edition presents the core areas of human biology with an emphasis on not only the internal world, but how we impact our external world. Highlighting biology's relevance, each chapter opens with an "Impacts, Issues" reading on a human biology-related issue currently in the news. Within the chapter, users then learn the basic concepts which help them think critically about these issues. In addition, each chapter's "How Would You Vote?" question invites users to explore current issues and deepen their understanding through online exercises. By the end of the chapter, learners are asked to "Explore on Your Own," and participate in activities showing the impact of the content on their lives. Benefits: NEW!

Infectious diseases coverage is integrated throughout rather than in a separate chapter. The topic is introduced in Chapter 1 as a global health issue. Subsequent chapters, especially the systems chapters, have greatly expanded coverage of diseases and disorders, including a new section on infectious disease concerns related to the chapter's main topic. NEW! Ecology topics are in two chapters -- one on basic principles, and a second chapter that focuses on environmental issues related to human activity, including loss of biodiversity, global warming, and the geographic spread of infectious disease organisms.
