Description

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.

 

This package includes Mastering Biology.

 

Develop and Practice Science Literacy Skills

Teach students to view their world using scientific reasoning with Campbell Essential Biology with Physiology. The authors’ approach equips your students to become better informed citizens, relate concepts from class to their everyday lives, and understand and apply real data, making biology relevant and meaningful to their world and futures.

 

The new edition incorporates instructor feedback on what key skills to highlight in new Process of Science essays and uses striking infographic figures in conveying real data to help students see and better understand how science actually works. New author-narrated Figure Walkthrough Videos appear in each chapter and guide students through key biology concepts and processes.

 

New topics in Why It Matters inspire curiosity and provide real-world examples to convey why abstract concepts like cell respiration or photosynthesis matter to students. This edition’s unmatched offering of author-created media supports students in the toughest topics with 24/7 access through the enhanced Pearson eText, embedded QR codes in the print text, and Mastering Biology.

Features

  • Process of Science essays present the material in a non-linear and highly visual format, aligning with widely accepted models of how science actually works.
  • Heavily revised Chapter 1 focuses on science literacy skills to introduce students to the process of science right from the start.
  • Visualising the Data figures illustrate data in an infographic format and provide students with a fresh approach to understanding concepts. These 14 figures appear throughout the text with icons flagging where they appear.
  • Figure Walkthroughs, written and narrated by the author team, appear in the chapters and include a QR Code to an accompanying short video that explains the concept or process.
  • “Why It Matters” photo collages have been updated to increase student curiosity about biology and give students real-world examples to convey why abstract concepts like cell respiration or photosynthesis matter. The authors have made improvements and updates based on reviewer feedback.
  • Select chapters have new Chapter Threads, and all Chapter Thread essays have been updated for currency and relevancy. Each Chapter Thread weaves a compelling topic throughout the chapter, highlighted in the Biology and Society, The Process of Science, and Evolution Connection essays.
  • Two Biology and Society essays have been added, and the Biology and Society essays relating biology to students’ lives are either new or updated.
  • “Major Themes in Biology” — Evolution, Structure/Function, Information Flow, Energy
  • Transformations, and Interconnections within Systems — help students see the interconnectedness of concepts and help instructors focus on the big picture ideas in biology. Introduced in Chapter 1, themes appear throughout the text with icons flagging headings where they appear.
  • Assessment questions reinforce the five major biological themes, are located at the end of each chapter.
  • Evolution Connection essays further explore a consistent evolution theme in depth in each chapter.
  • Interpreting Data end-of-chapter questions help students learn to use quantitative material by analysing graphs and interacting with other data.
