For the 11th edition of BIOLOGY: UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE, Cecie Starr and Ralph Taggart made it their goal to "solve" some of the toughest Introductory Biology course challenges.
We introduce a new issues-oriented approach with engages students in current, motivating biological topics; a built-in cross-referencing system for key topics; and, most importantly, time-saving media resources for instructors.
Show students how biology matters - Opening each chapter with engaging essays on hot issues and related online voting, the text highlights the connections between biology and real-life.
Online exercises promote critical thinking about issues students will face as consumers, parents and citizens.
Link concepts from chapter to chapter - Students often have a difficult time with this, so the authors created a "linking" tool.
A list at the start of each chapter reminds students of related topics that were explained earlier.
Within chapters, a key icon identifies cross-references to relevant sections in earlier chapters.
