- Publisher's Summary
- Biology: Life on Earth with Physiology, Tenth Edition continues this book's tradition of engaging non-majors biology students with real-world applications, high-interest case studies, and inquiry-based pedagogy that fosters a lifetime of discovery and scientific literacy. Maintaining the friendly writing style that has made the book a best-seller, the Tenth Edition continues to incorporate true and relevant stories using a chapter-opening Case Study that is revisited throughout the chapter and concluded at the end of the chapter. New to the Tenth Edition are Learning Goals and Check Your Learning questions that help students assess their understanding of the core concepts in biology. To increase the book's focus on health science, additional Health Watch essays are provided throughout units, and more anatomy & physiology content has been incorporated into the main narrative. Other highlights include new or revised Consider This questions, Have You Ever Wondered? Questions, and MasteringBiology. For courses not covering plant and animal anatomy & physiology, an alternate version-Biology: Life on Earth, Tenth Edition-is also available.
