BIOLOGY is an authoritative majors textbook with evolution as a unifying theme. In revising the text, McGraw-Hill has consulted extensively with previous users, noted experts and professors in the field. It is distinguished from other texts by its strong emphasis on natural selection and the evolutionary process that explains biodiversity.


A hefty but eye-catching introductory text for undergraduates, featuring a wealth of color photos and explanatory diagrams, boxed readings on current issues, and descriptions of real-life student projects, as well as chapter summaries and review and discussion questions. Coverage includes energetics, heredity, molecular genetics, viruses, homeostasis, and reproduction. This fourth edition emphasizes evolution and the relevance of biology to everyday life and reinforces conceptual thinking, while offering expanded cell and molecular coverage. CD-ROM, tape, and print supplements are available. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
