Book Details

Authors Cecie Starr, Christine A. Evers, and Lisa Starr partnered with the National Geographic Society to develop this Tenth Edition of BIOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS. Renowned for its clear writing style and unparalleled visuals, this trendsetting book applies exclusive National Geographic content to engage students and emphasize that biology is an ongoing endeavor carried out by a diverse community of scientists. Each 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 students master associated learning objectives. By continuously challenging students to question what they read and to apply the concepts they learn, Starr and the accompanying MindTap hone critical thinking skills as students gain scientific literacy.
