Biology: Organisms and Adaptations
Cengage Learning, Jan 1, 2013 - Science - 736 pages
BIOLOGY: ORGANISMS AND ADAPTATIONS captures your passion and excitement for the living world! The authors build on the connection we all have to nature to inspire you to engage with biology in the same way you do when visiting zoos, aquariums, or just taking a walk in the park. Each chapter uses fascinating organisms such as blue whales, salamanders, and redwood trees to present, organize, and integrate biological concepts. Merging the excitement and passion for living things with an understanding of biological concepts, this highly accessible and practical approach to the study of biology develops scientific literacy and connective thinking.
