To engage students in developing a deeper understanding of biology, this edition challenges them to apply their knowledge and skills to a variety of new hands-on activities and exercises in the text and online.
Content updates throughout the text reflect rapidly evolving research, and new learning tools include Problem-Solving Exercises, Visualising Figures, Visual Skills Questions, and more.
- Each chapter is organised around a framework of 3 to 7 Key Concepts that focus on the big picture and provide a context for supporting details
