Combining engaging narrative with effective pedagogical approach, Scott Freeman's Biological Science (4th Edition) allows readers to practice thinking like a real biologist and promotes progressive learning and positive educational reinforcement. The book aims to reach a wider spectrum of students, engaging them in brand new concepts and practical skills that can ultimately help them master the fundamentals. The text is supported by highly effective learning aids, including highlighted sections and exercises in various levels of difficulties. There is a complete answer key at the back of the book – a very handy feature for self-study. Concept maps are also provided to guide students through interconnected concepts across different chapters. Illustrations are also clearer, thanks to the new visual program. The appendices provide learning and practice materials for foundational skills, from reading chemical structures and Greek and Latin word roots to interpreting graphs and understanding phylogenetic trees. Some key concepts discussed in the book include the chemical basis of life, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids, and cellular interactions. Photosynthesis, meiosis, synthesis and repair, transcription and translation, and gene expression are also discussed, along with other essentials in genetics and genomics. There are chapters devoted to plants and animals, their development and evolution, as well as ecology, biodiversity, ecosystems, and conservation.
