Written by celebrated author and professor Cecie Starr, Ralph Taggart, Christine Evers, and Lisa Starr, Biology: The Unity and Diversity of Life is an entry-level college textbook that introduces biology in a refreshingly entertaining way. This book was designed to provide students a solid foundation for higher learning, covering topics such as ecology, biotechnology, evolution, taxonomy, anatomy, and biochemistry while unifying them into one interrelated field. Biology: The Unity and Diversity of Life (ISBN 9780495557920) uses practical issues and examples. Starr, Taggart, Evers, and Starr have compiled excellent researches and included illustrations. The book is divided into 7 parts, discussing the principles of cellular life, principles of inheritance, principles of evolution, evolution and biodiversity, how plants and animals work, and the principles of ecology. It likewise tackles life's chemical basis, metabolism, chemical energy. There are chapters devoted to chromosomes and human inheritance, as well as community structure and biodiversity. The authors provide insightful information timely issues such as human impact on the biosphere, ecosystem, and population ecology. Unlike other references in this niche, Biology: The Unity and Diversity of Life encourages students to ask questions and become more curious about biology instead of just memorizing key terms and principles. There are issue essays and other materials in each chapter that prompt learners to connect biology to everyday living. The online supplement is bursting with more exercise for self study.
