The Collins College Outline for College Biology is a comprehensive overview of core topics from cell structure to genetic engineering. Chapters on DNA and basic biological chemistry; animal development and major organ systems; plant structure and function; populations and ecosystems; current and controversial issues; and more will provide students with all of the information needed to master a college-level or AP biology course. Fully revised and updated by Dr. Marshall Sundberg, College Biology includes practical "test yourself" sections with answers and complete explanations at the end of each chapter. Also included are essential vocabulary definitions and sample exercises, as well as detailed images, charts, and diagrams.

The Collins College Outlines are a completely revised, in-depth series of study guides for all areas of study, including the Humanities, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Science, Language, History, and Business. Featuring the most up-to-date information, each book is written by a seasoned professor in the field and focuses on a simplified and general overview of the subject for college students and, where appropriate, Advanced Placement students. Each Collins College Outline is fully integrated with the major curriculum for its subject and is a perfect supplement for any standard textbook.
