Features

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content, which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

 

About the book

 

Key Concepts:  Each chapter in the 11th Edition is organized around a manageable framework of three to six Key Concepts that provide the context for supporting details, helping students distinguish the forest from the trees.

·    The Key Concepts at the beginning of the chapter orient students to the main ideas of the chapter.

·    Numbered Concept Heads keep students focused on the main ideas as they move through the chapter and make it easy for instructors to assign selected sections.

·    Concept Check Questions at the end of each section provide a hierarchical framework for self-assessment.

·    The Summary of Key Concepts, which includes summary diagrams and questions, refocuses students on the main points.

 

NEW! Content Updates: Carefully selected content updates throughout the text reflect rapidly evolving research in the fields of:

·    Genomics 

·    Gene editing technology (CRISPR)

·    Microbiomes

·    Impacts of climate change across the biological hierarchy

·    Significant revisions have been made to Unit 8, The Ecology of Life, including a deeper integration of evolutionary principles.

 

Course Themes:

·    Five fundamental themes that mirror the Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education report and run through all areas of biology--Evolution, Organization, Information, Energy and Matter, and Interactions--are introduced in Chapter 1 and recur throughout the text. A Write about a Theme question in every Chapter Review reinforces how the chapter content relates to one of these common “big ideas” of biology.

·    Evolution is the core theme of this text, introduced in Chapter 1. Every chapter includes at least one section that explicitly focuses on evolutionary aspects of the content, highlighted by an Evolution banner. (Since the chapters in Unit 4, Evolution, and Unit 5, The Diversity of Life, are all about evolution, these chapters do not have Evolution banners.) Every Chapter Review includes an Evolution Connection Question.

·    The impact of genomics and gene editing across biology is explored throughout the 11th Edition. Examples show students how our ability to sequence DNA and proteins rapidly and inexpensively is transforming every subfield of biology, from cell biology to physiology to ecology.

o The basic steps of gene expression are shown in Chapter 1, providing students with an understanding of how genes determine the characteristics of an organism from the beginning of their study of biology.

o Chapter 5 concludes with the concept, “Genomics and proteomics have transformed biological inquiry and applications,” which includes a Make Connections Figure, “Contributions of Genomics and Proteomics to Biology.”

o Examples show how biology is being revolutionized by DNA and protein sequence analysis, such as human origins research in Chapter 34, microbiome coverage in Chapter 42, and virus history identification in Chapter 47.

o CRISPR gene editing is covered in Chapters 19, 26, and 27.

 

Skill Development and Practice: The 11th Edition engages students by challenging them to apply their knowledge and skills to a variety of hands-on activities and exercises in the text and online.

·    NEW! Problem-Solving Exercises guide students in applying scientific skills and interpreting real data in the context of solving a real-world problem. A version of each Problem-Solving Exercise can also be assigned in MasteringBiology™.

·    NEW! Visualizing Figures and Visual Skills Questions are designed to improve students’ ability to interpret and create visual representations of processes and structures in biology. These skills are an essential foundation for understanding diagrams and models that students will encounter in higher-level courses and the scientific literature. For more practice, each Visualizing Figure is accompanied by an automatically graded assignment in MasteringBiology with answer-specific feedback for students.

·    Interpret the Data questions throughout the text ask students to analyze quantitative information presented in a graph or table. These questions can be assigned in MasteringBiology.

·    Scientific Skills Exercises in every chapter of the text use real data to build key skills needed for biology, including data analysis, graphing, experimental design, and math skills. Each Scientific Skills Exercise is also available as an automatically graded assignment in MasteringBiology with answer-specific feedback for students.

·    Inquiry Figures highlight how researchers designed an experiment, interpreted their results, and drew conclusions. Each Inquiry Figure concludes with a What If? Question that asks students to consider an alternative scenario, an Interpret the Data Question that asks students to analyze the data presented, or a Visual Skills Question that asks students to interpret a diagram.

·    Research Method Figures illustrate important techniques in biology

·    Scientific Inquiry Questions in the end-of-chapter material ask students to practice scientific thinking by developing hypotheses, designing experiments, and analyzing real research data.

·    Interviews with renowned researchers inspire students and show them the human side of science. 

 

Make Connections: The 11th Edition helps students make connections visually across biology topics.

·    Eleven Make Connections Figures pull together content from different chapters and provide a visual representation of “big picture” relationships.

·    NEW! Make Connections Figures include Figure 37.10, “Mutualism Across Kingdoms and Domains,” and Figure 56.29, “Climate Change Has Effects at All Levels of Biological Organization.” Make Connections Figure 18.27 on breast cancer has been expanded to illustrate the role of cell signaling in one type of breast cancer and its treatment.

·    Make Connections Questions ask students to relate content in a chapter to material presented earlier in the course to help them see how the different areas of biology are connected, from molecules to organisms to ecosystems.

·    Make Connections Tutorials in MasteringBiology connect content from two different chapters using art from the book. Make Connections Tutorials are automatically graded and include answer-specific feedback for students.
