Biology, 8th Edition

Biology focuses on evolution as a unifying theme. In revising the text, McGraw-Hill consulted with numerous users, noted experts and professors in the field. Biology is distinguished from other texts by its strong emphasis on natural selection and the evolutionary process that explains biodiversity. The new 8th edition continues that tradition and advances into modern biology by featuring the latest in cutting edge content reflective of the rapid advances in biology. That same modern perspective was brought into the completely new art program offering readers a dynamic, realistic, and accurate, visual program. Entirely NEW Visual Program! The entire art program was redone involving a variety of specialists, artists, and medical illustrators who worked very closely with the author team to provide a phenomenal visual program for readers. This new art program focuses on providing images that focus on difficult concepts and provide a clear, consistent, accurate and easy-to-follow visual explanation. Experimental Focus -- Another theme of Biology is that knowledge arises from experimental work that moves us forward. The use of historical and experimental approaches throughout allow the student to not only see where the field is now, but more importantly, how we arrived there. The authors have tried to keep as much historical context as possible and provide information within an experimental framework throughout the text. Strengthened Evolutionary Emphasis -- From the inception of Biology, evolution has been the underlying theme of the text. The Eighth edition has been written with an even greater focus on evolution, with a significant increase of coverage at the molecular level, a good example is the two new chapters dedicated to molecular evolution. This emphasis creates more depth, balancing the amount of evolutionary coverage throughout. Includes print student edition
