Published by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Human Biology by Sylvia Mader and Michael Windelspecht (ISBN 9780073525464) meets the needs of teachers seeking a straightforward textbook on this interdisciplinary subject. It successfully distills the fundamentals of human biology, showing how the interplay of physiology, evolution, genetics, ecology, epidemiology, and sociocultural influences the science of life. The themes explained in first 3 chapters (including cell structure and function, the chemistry of life, and human organization) are discussed using the fundamental patterns in biology, and this method is evident throughout the rest of the book. Authors Sylvia Mader and Michael Windelspecht developed Human Biology as a guide for college students interested in developing a critical manner of seeing their world, as well as subjects such as human evolution and ecology, human genetics, and human integration and coordination. The chapters are organized according to the ‘caste system' of biological life, going from one level to the other, starting with the topic of human organization to the maintenance of the body, and moving on to movement and support, and then to human reproduction. Sylvia Mader and co-author Michael Windelspecht simplified the sections that describe the skeletal system, respiratory system, and cardiovascular system, as well as the sections on cancer, biotechnology and DNA, and chromosomal inheritance to cater to beginners, but id not sacrifice accuracy and comprehensiveness. As students read and study Human Biology, they can begin to link the concepts of each chapter to others and develop a more comprehensive understanding of human life as whole.
