Description:

KEY MESSAGE:Hailed for its clear writing, scientific accuracy, and real-world examples,Essential Biology with Physiologyis 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.nbsp;Biology Today CELLS:nbsp;Essential Chemistry for Biology,nbsp;The Molecules of Life,nbsp;A Tour of the Cell,nbsp;The Working Cell,nbsp;Cellular Respiration: Obtaining Energy from Food,nbsp;Photosynthesis: Using Light to Make Food.nbsp;GENETICS:nbsp;Cellular Reproduction: Cells from Cells,nbsp;Patterns of Inheritance,nbsp;The Structure and Function of DNA,nbsp;How Genes are Controlled,nbsp;DNA Technology.nbsp;EVOLUTION AND DIVERSITY:nbsp;How Populations Evolve,nbsp;How Biological Diversity Evolves,nbsp;The Evolution of Microbial Life,nbsp;Plants, Fungi, and the Move onto Land,nbsp;The Evolution of Animals.nbsp;ECOLOGY:nbsp;The Ecology of Organisms and Populations,nbsp;Communities and Ecosystems,nbsp;Human Impact on the Environment.nbsp;ANIMAL STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION:nbsp;Unifying Concepts of Animal Structure and Function,nbsp;Nutrition and Digestion,nbsp;Circulation and Respiration ,nbsp;The Bodys Defenses,nbsp;Hormones, Reproduction and Development, Nervous, Sensory, and Motor Systems.
