An innovative learning experience that addresses how students learn today
Campbell Biology: Concepts & Connections continuesto introduce pedagogical developments that create an innovative learning experience and motivate students not only to learn, but also interact withbiology. The hallmark modular organization built around central concepts helpsstudents stay focused while engaging them in connecting biology with the worldoutside the classroom.
Building on the text’s outstanding art and hallmark features,the 10th Edition delivers new digital resources that guidestudents to success in the course. This edition draws from learning science aswell as the authors’ classroom experience to provide tools that address howstudents learn today. New Chapter Openers help students retain information,selected features break content into bite-size subsections, and additionalauthor-created videos ensure students focus on what is important.
Mastering® Biologyis not included. Students, if Mastering Biology is a recommended/ mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correctISBN. Mastering Biology should only be purchased when required by aninstructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
Focus students on key concepts
- NEW - Chapter Openers invite students into each chapter with a brief story that sets the stage for the chapter, a summary of the big ideas to be covered in the chapter, and three pre-test questions that follow Bloom's hierarchy from simple to complex.
- Visualizing the Concept Modules visually walk students through key topics in each chapter. Videos accompanying a select set of Visualizing the Concept modules are assignable in Mastering Biology.
- A flexible modular format organized around central concepts paces student learning into manageable chunks and allows your syllabus to drive the course.
- Numbered Central Concept Headings at the beginning of each module help students stay focused as they study.
- End-of-module Concept Check questions allow students to self-check their understanding along the way.
- The Big Ideas at the start of each chapter serve as a roadmap to students by highlighting the overarching set of concepts that each chapter is built upon.
- Try This activities are active learning prompts that coach students to interact with the figures in their text to build understanding. Questions in Learning Catalytics allow instructors to turn these into in-class activities.
Help students connect biology concepts
- NEW - Figure Walkthroughs guide students to a deeper understanding and feature key figures with narrated explanations, figure markups, and questions that reinforce important points and incorporate higher-level Bloom’s questions. The Figure Walkthroughs are assignable in the Mastering Biology Item Library.
- NEW - Cellular respiration in Chapter 6 (How Cells Harvest Chemical Energy) has been re-written and reorganized to make it easier to teach the content at varying levels of depth.
- A focus on the major themes in biology is inspired by the Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education Report. Five themes—Evolution, Organization, Information, Energy and Matter, and Interactions—are introduced in Chapter One and examples are highlighted throughout the text to illustrate applications of these themes in all chapters.
- Connection Modules in every chapter relate biology to students’ lives and the world outside the classroom. Each Connection Module shows students how the course material connects to a wide variety of issues.
- Evolution Connection Modules present concrete examples of the evidence for evolution within each chapter, providing a coherent theme for the study of life.
- Career photo essays at the start of each unit highlight connections between chapter contents and careers that relate to an undergraduate general biology course. This new feature is designed to demonstrate to students the vast array of career opportunities available to STEM students.
Guide students to think scientifically
- UPDATED - Chapter 9 (Patterns of Inheritance) presents human sex determination as a much more complex and varied process and outcome, rather than describing sex determination as a binary state.
- 38 Scientific Thinking modules incorporate engaging visuals and streamlined content that present information in bite-size subsections to help students develop an understanding of how scientific research is conducted. Students can access Scientific Thinking Activities on their own in the Mastering Biology Study Area, and these are assigned in Mastering Biology.
- Scientific Thinking concept check questions conclude each Scientific Thinking Module and prompt students to focus on aspects of the process of science such as forming and testing of hypotheses, experimental design, variables and controls, and the evaluation and communication of scientific results.
- Visualizing the Data Figures present data in an infographic form and are flagged by Visualizing the Data icons in the textbook. These 19 figures provide students with a fresh approach to understanding by using graphs and numerical data to illustrate concepts.
- Scientifically accurate and up-to-date research ensures that you and your students have the most current information.
- End-of-chapter review questions better reflect best practices of scientific teaching.
Mastering® Biology is not included. Students, if MasteringBiology is a recommended / mandatory component of the course, please ask yourinstructor for the correct ISBN. Mastering Biology should only be purchasedwhen required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearsonrepresentative for more information.
Teach your course your way
- Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules make use of teaching tools for before, during, and after class, including new ideas for in-class activities. The modules align with the course and incorporate the best that the text, Mastering Biology, and Learning Catalytics have to offer and can be accessed through the Instructor Resources area of Mastering Biology. Learn more here.
- With Learning Catalytics, you’ll hear from every student when it matters most. You pose a variety of questions that help students recall ideas, apply concepts, and develop critical-thinking skills. Your students respond using their own smartphones, tablets, or laptops. You can monitor responses with real-time analytics and find out what your students do — and don’t — understand. Then, you can adjust your teaching accordingly, and even facilitate peer-to-peer learning, helping students stay motivated and engaged. Instructors can create their own questions, draw from community content, or access the Learning Catalytics library of question clusters. Focused on key topics, the clusters consist of 2-5 questions about a single data set or scenario.

DSMs are assignable modules that pose a series of question sets about a course topic. The questions adapt to each student’s performance and offer personalized, targeted feedback to help them master key concepts. As a result, students build the confidence they need to deepen their understanding, participate meaningfully, and perform better — in and out of class. Students can use their computer or the MyLab and Mastering app to access Dynamic Study Modules. Available for select titles.
Deliver trusted content
- 11 Key Topic Overview videos created by authors Eric Simon, Jean Dickey and Kelly Hogan. The videos deliver a whiteboard style mini-lesson that introduces students to broad, interconnecting concepts and serves as a basic introductory overview to key concepts in the course. Each is accompanied by an assessment so students can check their understanding.
- HHMI Short Films are documentary-quality movies from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute that cover explorations, ranging from the discovery of the double helix to evolution, and include assignable questions.
- BioFlix® 3-D Animations help students visualize biology with movie-quality animations that can be presented in class, reviewed by students on their own in the Study Area, and assigned in Mastering Biology. BioFlix Tutorials use the animations as a jumping-off point for Mastering Biology coaching exercises on tough topics

Neil A. Campbell (1946—2004) combined the inquiring nature of a research scientist with the soul of a caring teacher. Over his 30 years of teaching introductory biology to both science majors and nonscience majors, many thousands of students had the opportunity to learn from him and be stimulated by his enthusiasm for the study of life. While he isgreatly missed by his many friends in the biology community, his coauthorsremain inspired by his visionary dedication to education and are committed tosearching for ever better ways to engage students in the wonders of biology.
