Biology: Concepts and Applications (10th Edition) – eBook PDF
Should employers be allowed to require drug testing? Should there be warning labels on fast foods? This introductory textbook teaches you basic concepts of biology in context of critical issues. The Biology: Concepts And Applications 10th edition (PDF) was developed in partnership by authors Cecie Starr, Christine A. Evers, and Lisa Starr with the National Geographic Society, known for its eye-opening photography and legacy of inspiring people. The result is a textbook that combines unparalleled visuals with clear explanations to introduce the process of science and core concepts of biology. “Engage” boxes help students see chapter concepts being put to work in the real world; “Figure It Out” questions help you check understanding; “Applications” bring chapter content to real life; “Learning Objectives” help focus your studying; and “Data Analysis” activities strengthen your analytical skills. This ebook is widely praised for engaging and clear writing, exceptional art, and terrific support from media that all work together to help you “get” biology.
Every chapter explores core concepts aligned with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) initiative “Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education” to help college students master associated learning objectives. By continuously challenging biology students to question what they read and to apply the concepts they learn, the textbook allows our citizens and future policy-makers to hone critical thinking skills as they gain scientific literacy.
“I use this textbook for non-science majors so I greatly appreciate the easy to read format, the occasional bits of humor, and many other aspects, such as the “People Matter” sections and the applications, which I use quite frequently for my online class. This makes the ebook much more interesting, readable and applicable to real life to students who are either not interested or afraid of taking a science class.”
