9780321485250: Essential Biology

This brief text consistently relates core course material to students’ lives, clarifies the process of science and demonstrates how the theme of evolution integrates all of biology.

 

Hailed for its clear writing, scientific accuracy, and real-world examples, Essential Biology is a brief non-majors biology text that focuses on the core concepts students need to make scientifically informed decisions throughout their lives. The book covers four major topics–cells, genetics, evolution/diversity, and ecology–and uses evolution as an overarching theme to tie all 20 chapters together. Human applications and the most up-to-date information on important issues show students how biology relates to their own lives.  New Process of Science sections within the text draw students into the material and provide real-world examples of how the scientific method is applied.

 

The Third Edition features dynamic new resources designed to focus students’ study time and help them master the most challenging topics in the course. New state-of-the-art eTutor animations and audio MP3 Tutor Sessions guide students through the most challenging topics in biology. A customized Study Plan on the accompanying website pinpoints exactly where students have trouble, and directs them to relevant sections of the text and media for help.

 

The Third Edition also includes the new Media Manager, which organizes all the instructor and student media in one convenient location, allowing instructors to easily and efficiently create engaging lectures. Three new types of assessment questions that test visual, quantitative, and critical-thinking skills offer new and creative ways to test student understanding.

About the Author:

Neil A. Campbell has taught general biology for 30 years, and with Dr. Reece, has coauthored Biology, Sixth Edition, the most widely used text for biology majors. His enthusiasm for sharing the fun of science with students stems from his own undergraduate experience. He began at Long Beach State College as a history major, but switched to zoology after general education requirements "forced" him to take a science course. Following a B.S. from Long Beach, he earned an M.A. in Zoology from UCLA and a Ph.D. in Plant Biology from the University of California, Riverside.

He has published numerous articles on how certain desert plants thrive in salty soil and how sensitive plant (Mimosa) and other legumes move their leaves. His diverse teaching experiences include courses for non-biology majors at Cornell University, Pomona College, and San Bernardino Valley College, where he received the first Outstanding Professor Award in the Department of Botany and Plant Sciences at UC Riverside, which recognized him as the university's Distinguished Alumnus for 2001. In addition to Biology, Sixth Edition, he is coauthor of Essential Biology.

Jane B. Reece has worked in biology publishing since 1978, when she joined the editorial staff of Benjamin Cummings. Her education includes an A.B. in Biology from Harvard University, an M.S. in Microbiology from Rutgers University, and a Ph.D. in Bacteriology from the University of California, Berkeley. At UC Berkeley and later as a post-doctoral fellow in genetics at Stanford University, her research focused on genetic recombination in bacteria. Dr. Reece taught biology at Middlesex County College (New Jersey) and Queensborough Community College (New York). During her 12 years as an editor at Benjamin Cummings, she played major roles in a number of successful textbooks. Subsequently, she was a coauthor of The World of the Cell, Third Edition, with W. M. Becker and M. F. Poenie. With Dr. Campbell, she coauthors Biology, Sixth Edition, and Essential Biology.
