Coleen Belk and Virginia Borden Maier have helped students demystify biology for nearly twenty years in the classroom and nearly ten years with their book, Biology: Science for Life. In the new Fourth Edition, they continue to use stories and current issues, such as discussion of cancer to teach cell division, to connect biology to student's lives. Learning Outcomes are new to this edition and integrated within the book to help professors guide students' reading and to help students assess their understanding of biology. A new Chapter 3, "Is It Possible to Supplement Your Way to Better Health? Nutrients and Membrane Transport," offers an engaging storyline and focused coverage on micro- and macro-nutrients, antioxidants, passive and active transport, and exocytosis and endocytosis. For instructors who cover Animal Structure and Function and Plant Biology, an alternate edition of this book, Biology: Science for Life with Physiology, is also available. This package contains:
  • Biology: Science for Life, Fourth Edition
