Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
From its first edition, Life has set the standard for experiment-based introductory biology texts. There is no stronger textbook for helping students understand not just what we know (scientific facts), but how we know it (the experimental process that leads to their discovery).
 
The new edition of Life builds upon this tradition, teaching fundamental concepts and showcasing significant research while responding to changes in biology education...

• PEDAGOGICALLY, with features that match the way students learn today, including chapter opening stories, art with balloon captions, and new Learning Objectives

 SCIENTIFICALLY, with a wealth of important new research throughout (see Table of Contents for highlights)

• TECHNOLOGICALLY, with instant access QR codes printed in the text, new interactive features (media clips, chapter summaries, a flashcard app), and a dramatically enhanced BioPortal, with the adaptive quizzing system, LearningCurve

• QUANTIFIABLY, with completely revised assessment resources and new ways of measuring students' progress

Also avalable, Volume Splits:—paperbound in full color!
Volume 1: The Cell and Heredity (Chapters 1-20)
Volume 2: Evolution, Diversity, and Ecology (Chapters 1, 21-33, 54-59)
Volume 3: Plants and Animals (Chapters 1, 34-53)
