The Third Edition of Biology: Science for Life with Physiology continues to draw readers into biology through engaging stories that make difficult topics more accessible and understandable. Colleen Belk and Virginia Borden strive to make teaching and learning biology a better experience from both sides of the desk. The authors draw from their teaching experiences to create a book with a flowing narrative and innovative features that require readers to become more active participants in their learning. Each chapter presents the material through a story that draws from real life examples, making the reading more engaging and accessible to today's readers. These stories strive to demystify topics found in biology. The Third Edition of this book features a completely re-designed art program and uses the authors' teaching experiences to create reader-centered features such as the new Savvy Reader, Visualize This, and Stop and Stretch to motivate and encourage reader learning. The new A Closer Look allows instructors the opportunity to expand on certain important biological topics. For instructors who do not cover topics related to physiology, an alternate edition of this book, Biology: Science for Life, is also available. This text now includes access to MasteringBiology(R). All of the resources previously found on mybiology are now located within the Study Area of MasteringBiology.Can Science Cure the Common Cold?

Coleen Belk and Virginia Borden Maier have helped students demystify biology for nearly twenty years in the classroom and nearly ten years with their book, Biology: Science for Life. In the new Fourth Edition, they continue to use stories and current issues, such as discussion of cancer to teach cell division, to connect biology to student's lives. Learning Outcomes are new to this edition and integrated within the book to help professors guide students' reading and to help students assess their understanding of biology. A new Chapter 3, "Is It Possible to Supplement Your Way to Better Health? Nutrients and Membrane Transport," offers an engaging storyline and focused coverage on micro- and macro-nutrients, antioxidants, passive and active transport, and exocytosis and endocytosis. For instructors who cover Animal Structure and Function and Plant Biology, an alternate edition of this book, Biology: Science for Life with Physiology, is also available. This package contains: Biology: Science for Life, Fourth Edition

"As the amount of information in biology expands dramatically, it becomes increasingly important for textbooks to distill the vast amount of scientific knowledge into concise principles and enduring concepts. As with previous editions, Molecular Biology of the Cell, Sixth Edition accomplishes this goal with clear writing and beautiful illustrations. The Sixth Edition has been extensively revised and updated with the latest research in the field of cell biology, and it provides an exceptional framework for teaching and learning. The entire illustration program has been greatly enhanced. Protein structures better illustrate structure-function relationships, icons are simpler and more consistent within and between chapters, and micrographs have been refreshed and updated with newer, clearer, or better images. As a new feature, each chapter now contains intriguing open-ended questions highlighting "What We Don't Know," introducing students to challenging areas of future research. Updated end-of-chapter problems reflect new research discussed in the text. Thought-provoking end-of-chapter questions have been expanded to all chapters, including questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, the immune system, and pathogens"--Provided by publisher.
