Peppered with practical examples and illustrations, Biology: A Guide to the Natural World remains one of the most effective introductory books on the science of life. David Krogh continues to integrate his expert insights to help students make sense of scientific and biological concepts. Now on its 5th edition, this book offers new topics and updates on timely social concerns as well as other health applications. It also boasts excellent pedagogical features, starting from the well written chapter summaries to the carefully formulated review questions. A seasoned writer, David Krogh has authored articles, papers, and books about science for the past 27 years. He has written for magazines, newspapers, and even educational institutions; in fact, he is the voice behind Smoking: The Artificial Passion, which offers an excellent study on the use of tobacco and the cultural and pharmacological motivation behind people's smoking compulsion. Biology: A Guide to the Natural World (5th Edition) ISBN 9780321616555 covers the most basic topics, from the fundamental biological components like cells and molecules to DNA, evolution, bodily systems and processes, and biodiversity. The book talks about energy as the mainspring of life. There is a brief introduction to evolution, Darwinism, and evidences of evolution, while the discussion on biodiversity is divided into 4 parts, namely viruses/bacteria, fungi, animals, and plants. Krogh also offers a thorough discussion of the immune system and other bodily functions like blood circulation and respiration, digestion, and elimination. Other important topics that should not be missed include populations, communities, and ecosystems. This widely used textbook not only keeps students' attention, but heightens their interest in the fundamental concepts of biology as well, making it one of the leading references in the market.
