Publisher Comments:

Hailed for its clear writing, scientific accuracy, and real-world examples, Essential Biology with Physiology is a brief non-majors biology text that focuses on the core concepts readers need to make scientifically informed decisions throughout their lives. The book covers four major topics—cells, genetics, evolution/diversity, and ecology—followed by nine chapters on animal and plant physiology. Human applications and the most up-to-date information on important issues show readers how biology relates to their own lives. New Process of Science sections within the text draw readers into the material and provide real-world examples of how the scientific method is applied.  Biology Today CELLS: Essential Chemistry for Biology, The Molecules of Life, A Tour of the Cell, The Working Cell, Cellular Respiration: Obtaining Energy from Food, Photosynthesis: Using Light to Make Food. GENETICS: Cellular Reproduction: Cells from Cells, Patterns of Inheritance, The Structure and Function of DNA, How Genes are Controlled, DNA Technology. EVOLUTION AND DIVERSITY: How Populations Evolve, How Biological Diversity Evolves, The Evolution of Microbial Life, Plants, Fungi, and the Move onto Land, The Evolution of Animals. ECOLOGY: The Ecology of Organisms and Populations, Communities and Ecosystems, Human Impact on the Environment. ANIMAL STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION: Unifying Concepts of Animal Structure and Function, Nutrition and Digestion, Circulation and Respiration , The Body's Defenses, Hormones, Reproduction and Development, Nervous, Sensory, and Motor Systems. PLANT STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION: The Life of a Flowering Plant, The Working Plant.  For all readers interested in a biology text that focuses on the core concepts readers need to make scientifically informed decisions throughout their lives.

Synopsis:

Never HIGHLIGHT a Book Again! Virtually all testable terms, concepts, persons, places, and events are included. Cram101 Textbook Outlines gives all of the outlines, highlights, notes for your textbook with optional online practice tests. Only Cram101 Outlines are Textbook Specific. Cram101 is NOT the Textbook.

Synopsis:

' Intended for those interested in learning the essentials of biology'

Synopsis:

Key Benefit: Campbell Essential Biology with Physiology, Third Edition provides essential, effective solutions to the challenges faced by instructors and their students in the non-majors biology course.  

  1. Three features (Biology and Society, Process of Science, and Evolution Connections) found at the beginning, middle and end of every chapter give students a memorable framework to take with them into the future.
  2. One compelling topic anchors the three book features in each chapter to emphasize how biology is highly relevant.
  3. The book and the media are designed from the ground up to teach biology to a wide range of students.
  4. MasteringBiology, our online tutorial and assessment system, makes it easy to increase student participation and accountability.

About the Author

'

Eric J. Simon is an associate professor of biology at New England College in Henniker, New Hampshire. He teaches introductory biology to both science majors and non-science majors, as well as upper-level courses in genetics, microbiology, and molecular biology. Dr. Simon received a B.A. in biology and computer science and an M.A. in biology from Wesleyan University and a Ph.D. in biochemistry from Harvard University. His research focuses on innovative ways to use technology to improve teaching and learning in the science classroom, particularly for non-science majors. Eric is the lead author of the introductory biology textbooks \"Essential Biology\" and \"Essential Biology with Physiology\" and is a co-author on \"Biology: Concepts and Connections.\"

 

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 (where she was initially a philosophy major), 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 postdoctoral 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). She is the lead author of Biology, Eighth Edition, and Biology: Concepts & Connections, Sixth Edition.

 

Jean L. Dickey is a professor of biology at Clemson University. She had no idea that science was interesting until her senior year in high school, when a scheduling problem landed her in advanced biology. Abandoning plans to study English or foreign languages, she enrolled in Kent State University as a biology major. After receiving her B.S. in biology, she went on to earn a Ph.D. in ecology and evolution from Purdue University. Since joining the faculty at Clemson in 1984, Dr. Dickey has specialized in teaching non-science majors, including a course designed for pre-service elementary teachers and workshops for in-service teachers. She also developed an investigative laboratory curriculum for general biology. Dr. Dickey is the author of Laboratory Investigations for Biology, Second Edition, and is a coauthor of Biology: Concepts & Connections, 6th Edition.'
