Solomon/Martin/Martin/Berg, BIOLOGY is often described as the best majors text for LEARNING biology. Working like a built-in study guide, the superbly integrated, inquiry-based learning system guides you through every chapter. Key concepts appear clearly at the beginning of each chapter and learning objectives start each section. You can quickly check the key points at the end of each section before moving on to the next one. At the end of the chapter, a specially focused summary provides further reinforcement of the learning objectives and you are given the opportunity to test your understanding of the material. The tenth edition offers expanded integration of the text's five guiding themes of biology (the evolution of life, the transmission of biological information, the flow of energy through living systems, interactions among biological systems, and the inter-relationship of structure and function) and innovative online and multimedia resources.
