Description:

DIVERSITY OF LIFE covers Unit IV from BIOLOGY: THE UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE, 11th Edition. This brief and specialized book was designed for general non-major biology courses and presents the six kingdoms of life in an evolutionary framework. This book includes descriptions, illustrations, life cycles of representative viruses, bacteria, protistans, fungi, plants, invertebrates, and more. For the 11th edition of BIOLOGY: UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE, Cecie Starr and Ralph Taggart made it their goal to "solve" some of the toughest Introductory Biology course challenges. We introduce a new issues-oriented approach with engages students in current, motivating biological topics; a built-in cross-referencing system for key topics; and, most importantly, time-saving media resources for instructors.

For the past two decades, Cecie Starr has been known as one of the best-selling biology textbook authors. Her texts, appreciated for their clarity in both the written word and the visual representation of biological concepts, include multiple editions of Biology: the Unity and Diversity of Life, Biology: Concepts and Applications, and Biology today and Tomorrow. Her original dream was to become an architect. Instead of building houses, she now builds, with care and attention to detail, incredible texts based on this philosophy: "I invite students into a chapter through an intriguing story. Once inside, they get the great windows that biologists construct on the world of life. Biology is not just another house. It is a conceptual mansion. I hope to do it justice."

Ralph Taggert � Former Chair of Biological Sciences at Michigan State University, Ralph Taggert is now the chair of Geological Sciences. Known for his outstanding research in Paleobotany, he taught the general biology course for over 20 years.
