An excellent introductory book to the study of life, Biology by Peter Raven, George Johnson, Kenneth Mason, Jonathan Losos, and Susan Singer continues to revolutionize learning, as it focuses not only on educational content but on commendable instructional features that effectively aid the learning process. All information are presented in an enlightening and relatable manner while keeping the tradition of scientific inquiry that has been so successfully integrated in the preceding editions. The book can be used by biology majors and non-majors alike, especially with the incorporation of other useful scientific aspects like genomics and other branches of biology. Raven, Johnson, Mason, Losos, and Singer's Biology (ISBN 9780077350024) is an engaging material complete with interesting illustrations, photographs, easy to understand diagrams, side readings, and informative footnotes. Practical projects are also integrated for application of different concepts. At the end of each chapter is a summary of the key principles, along with some review questions for discussion and self study. The book covers a wide range of topics, ranging from heredity to energetics and reproduction. The latest edition also focuses on evolution; it begins in molecular biology and ends with different concepts about ecology and the dynamics and conservation of ecosystems. A whole package of learning supplements and tools can also be used with this reference, providing instructors and students a solid platform for explaining and understanding the most basic to the most complex principles of biology. Raven, who is one of the main contributors for the book, specializes in tropical botany, and is in fact one of the most active personalities in the study and preservation of endangered tropical habitats. He has authored more than 17 textbooks, on top of hundreds of articles about botany, biology, and other related sciences, and is a member of the National Academy of Science and the National Research Council.
