Uncluttered design helps students focus on important concepts with a contemporary graphic style and color palette. Chapter-opening stories engage student interest and highlight an important concept in the chapter. New to this edition, each story now concludes with a question that carries through the chapter and is answered at the end of the chapter Section-ending Recaps are phrased in the form of learning objectives. Each offers a brief summary with questions so students can check their mastery of the material they have just read.

About this title From its first edition, Life has set the standard for experiment-based introductory biology texts. There is no stronger textbook for helping students understand not just what we know scientific facts , but how we know it the experimental process that leads to their discovery. The new edition of Life builds upon this tradition, teaching fundamental concepts and showcasing significant research while responding to changes in biology education About the Author: David E.
Twice winner of the Huntoon Award for superior teaching, Dr. Sadava has taught courses on introductory biology, biotechnology, biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, plant biology, and cancer biology. In addition to Life: The Science of Biology, he is the author or coauthor of books on cell biology and on plants, genes, and crop biotechnology.
His research has resulted in many papers coauthored with his students, on topics ranging from plant biochemistry to pharmacology of narcotic analgesics to human genetic diseases. For the past 15 years, he has investigated multi-drug resistance in human small-cell lung carcinoma cells with a view to understanding and overcoming this clinical challenge.
At the City of Hope, his current work focuses on new anti-cancer agents from plants. David M. Hillis is the Alfred W. Hillis has taught courses in introductory biology, genetics, evolution, systematics, and biodiversity. His research interests span much of evolutionary biology, including experimental studies of evolving viruses, empirical studies of natural molecular evolution, applications of phylogenetics, analyses of biodiversity, and evolutionary modeling.
He is particularly interested in teaching and research about the practical applications of evolutionary biology. Craig Helleris the Lorry I. His research is on the neurobiology of sleep and circadian rhythms, mammalian hibernation, the regulation of body temperature, the physiology of human performance, and the neurobiology of learning. He has done research on a huge variety of animals and physiolo-gical problems, including from sleeping kangaroo rats, diving seals, hibernating bears, photo-periodic hamsters, and exercising athletes.
Heller has extended his enthusiasm for promoting active learning via the development of a two-year curriculum in human biology for the middle grades, through the production of Virtual Labs interactive computer-based modules to teach physiology. She has taught courses in introductory animal biology, entomology, insect ecology and chemical ecology and has received awards at the regional and national levels teaching from the Entomological Society of America.
Her research addresses insect-plant coevolution from molecular mechanisms of detoxification to impacts of herbivory on community structure. Concerned with the practical application of ecological and evolutionary principles, she has examined impacts of genetic engineering, global climate change, and invasive species on natural and agricultural ecosystems.
In recognition of her work, she received the Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement. Devoted to fostering science literacy, she has published numerous articles and five books on insects for the general public.
