From award-winning professor Michael Johnson comes another edition of Human Biology: Concepts and Current Issues. This engaging narrative relates fundamental biology concepts to current real-world situations and issues. It explains in detail how the human body and its systems work and helps readers and students develop better attitudes towards science and health information. The book even features entries from Johnson's regularly updated blog, and all chapters begin with essays about timely concerns. The book even offers extensive online references and resources for better learning. At the end of each chapter are review and critical thinking questions that help students recall key information. Human Biology: Concepts and Current Issues (6th Edition) ISBN 9780321701671 is divided into 24 chapters and provides in depth discussions of bodily systems and other aspects of biology. The first chapter talks about the relationship between biology, science, and society, followed by a discussion of the chemistry of living things. Succeeding pages talk about cells and organ systems, the skeletal and muscular systems, the blood, and the heart, and the immune system and its defense mechanisms. The book also devotes separate sections for the respiratory system, nervous system, sensory mechanisms endocrine, digestive, and urinary systems. Special emphasis is given to nutrition. Another chapter discusses the reproductive system, followed by cell reproduction and differentiation. Towards the end of the book, the author talks about abnormal cell division and differentiation which leads to cancer, followed by a chapter on genetics and inheritance, DNA technology, and genetic engineering. There are also chapters about human development and the process of aging, along with evolution, ecosystems, and populations.
