For chemistry, biology and bioengineering students, required courses in general chemistry often fail to excite their interest in the many connections between chemistry and biology. This resource for chemistry and some biology instructors addresses the problem directly, showing how biological phenomena can be used to illustrate classical principles of chemistry from structure and bonding through redox, thermodynamics, kinetics, analysis and inorganic chemistry. The authors--all experienced teachers and outstanding researchers--combine examples from biochemistry and environmental, pharmaceutical, and nuclear chemistry with the traditional introductory material in organic, inorganic, analytical, and physical chemistry. The book can serve as a companion to virtually any introductory chemistry, biology, or biochemistry text. It includes problem sets at the end of each chapter, a generous selection of color transparencies, and a collection of black and white figures suitable for reproduction. The work also gives instructions for easy access to public-domain molecular graphics programs that can serve as ideal introductions to today's powerful modeling systems.

Jacques Blondel is at Centre d'Ecologie Fonctionelle et Evolutive, Centre National de la Recherche, Montpellier. James Aronson is at Centre d'Ecologie Fonctionelle et Evolutive, Centre National de la Recherche, Montpellier.Review:
"Synthesizes the history, ecology, and evolutionary biology of Mediterranean animals and plants and their habitats, focusing on the region's incredible biodiversity and causes for it. Coverage encompasses biological diversity at many spatial scales of space and biological integration, with chapters on species and community variations, life-history traits and ecosystem functioning, and humans as sculptors of Mediterranean landscapes. The writing style is informal, without technical jargon. Includes b&w maps and drawings. Blondel is director of research at CNRS, France; Aronson is research ecologist at CEFE/CNRS, France."--SciTech Book News
