Overview

Strike the perfect balance between level of detail and accessibility! Written for a one-semester, non-Biology majors course, BIOLOGY TODAY AND TOMORROW WITH PHYSIOLOGY includes applications that are relevant to a student's daily life. The straightforward writing style, learning support, and trendsetting art engage students and help them understand key concepts. Overall, this product helps students develop an understanding of biology and the process of science while building the critical-thinking skills they need to become responsible citizens. Available with MindTap® for Biology, a customizable online learning solution.

Cecie Starr,

For two decades, Cecie Starr secured her place as one of the bestselling 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, but now, instead of building houses, she 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."

Christine Evers,

Christine Evers (B.S. in Biology, State University of New York at Stony Brook) has been creating multimedia and web-based materials to supplement Starr and other science texts for ten years. After working as a research assistant studying developmental biology of slime mold, she was awarded an N.S.F. fellowship to attend Yale, where she studied Evolutionary Biology and honeybee behavior. She has a strong interest in science education and serves as a member of her local school board.

Lisa Starr,

Lisa Starr (B.A. in Chemistry/Biochemistry, University of California at San Diego, Revelle College) became an expert in molecular and cellular biology as she helped to build a veterinary virology research program at the biotech firm Syntro. She also spent seven years at The Scripps Research Institute and founded two other biotech firms. Since 1997, Lisa has been responsible for much of the art in the Starr BIOLOGY textbooks and has been a coauthor of the series since 2004.

  • "Digging into Data" exercises ask students to analyze data and apply it to topical questions.
  • Eye-catching, chapter-opening art highlights each chapter's big picture topic and also appears within the chapter as an example. The visually appealing and accurate art program helps visual learners with step-by-step art, "Figure It Out" images, and animated figures.
  • Chapter 5, Capturing and Releasing Energy, combines the coverage of Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration to reveal these key concepts more completely and easily.
  • The authors' clear, accessible writing style engages students and makes the material accessible without glossing over the science—even with the most formidable topics.
  • Chapter-opening sections motivate students by exploring a current event or controversy directly related to the chapter's content.
  • Section-ending "Take-Home Messages" help students grasp key concepts.
  • An on-page glossary provides students with immediate help with the language of Biology and aids reading comprehension.
