For non-majors/mixed biology courses.
An Inquiry Approach that engages readers in critical thinking through the use of relatable case studies and more.
With a proven and effective tradition of engaging readers with real-world applications, high-interest case studies, and inquiry-based pedagogy, Biology: Life on Earth fosters a lifetime of discovery and scientific understanding. Maintaining the conversational, question-and-answer presentation style that has made the text a best-seller, the 11th Edition continues to incorporate true and relevant Case Studies throughout each chapter, along with new, more extensive guidance for developing critical thinking skills and scientific literacy.
For coverage of plant and animal anatomy & physiology, an alternate edition, Biology: Life on Earth with Physiology, 11th Edition, is also available.
