|The Third Edition of Biology: Science for Life with Physiologycontinues to draw readers into biology through engaging stories that make difficult topics more accessible and understandable. Colleen Belk and Virginia Borden strive to make teaching and learning biology a better experience from both sides of the desk. The authors draw from their teaching experiences to create a book with a flowing narrative and innovative features that require readers to become more active participants in their learning. Each chapter presents the material through a story that draws from real life examples, making the reading more engaging and accessible to todayâs readers. These stories strive to demystify topics found in biology. The Third Editionof this book features a completely re-designed art program and uses the authorsâ teaching experiences to create reader-centered features such as the new Savvy Reader, Visualize This,and Stop and Stretchto motivate and encourage reader learning. The new A Closer Look allows instructors the opportunity to expand on certain important biological topics. For instructors who do not cover topics related to physiology, an alternate edition of this book, Biology: Science for Life,is also available. Can Science Cure the Common Cold? Introduction to the Scientific Method, Are We Alone in the Universe? Water, Biochemistry, and Cells, Diet. Cells and Metabolism, Life in the Greenhouse: Photosynthesis Cellular Respiration, and Global Warming,Cancer: DNA Synthesis, Mitosis, and Meiosis, Are You Only as Smart as Your Genes? Mendelian and Quantitative Genetics, DNA Detective: Complex Patterns of Inheritance and DNA Fingerprinting, Gene Expression, Mutation and Cloning: Genetically Modified Organisms, Where Did We Come From? The Evidence for Evolution, An Evolving Enemy: Natural Selection, Who Am I? Species and Races, Prospecting for Biological Gold: Biodiversity and Classification, Is the Human Population Too Large? Population Ecology,Conserving Biodiversity: Community and Ecosystem Ecology, Where Do You Live? Climate and Biomes, Organ Donation: Tissues, Organs, and Organ Systems, Clearing the Air: Respiratory, Cardiovascular, and Excretory Systems, Will Mad Cow Disease Become an Epidemic? Immune System, Bacteria, Viruses, and Other Pathogens, Sex Differences and Athleticism: Endocrine, Skeletal, and Muscular Systems, Is There Something in the Water? Reproductive and Developmental Biology, Attention Deficit Disorder: Brain Structure and Function, Feeding the World: Plant Structure and Growth, Growing a Green Thumb: Plant Physiology.Intended for those interested in learning the basics of biology.|

I thought that I needed this book for a class I will be taking, but found out that I will not be needing it.
This is a good entry-level college Biology text, geared towards both those who are trying to build on a solid scientific foundation, as well as those who will not be majoring in a science. I felt that the experience would have been enhanced if there had been accompanying lab time.
A great book for college students interesting in Biology! I bought it for my Biology 101 course and it's very helpful! Understandable and very well written!
I had to buy thi book for my college level biology class. It seems to be a very nice book in terms of organization and content!
The international edition was the cheaper alternative to what they made us buy at the college (Which was $117 Used). Overall, a better choice for us college students who have to pinch every penny.
