Help students think and engage like scientists! BIOLOGY: THE DYNAMIC SCIENCE, Second Edition, provides students with a deep understanding of the core concepts in Biology, building a strong foundation for additional study. In a fresh presentation, the authors explain complex ideas clearly and describe how biologists collect and interpret evidence to test hypotheses about the living world. Russell, Hertz, and McMillan spark students’ curiosity about living systems instead of burying it under a mountain of disconnected facts. They engage students with what scientists know about the living world, how they know it, and what they still need to learn. By conveying the author’s passion for biological research, the text helps students cultivate the mental habits of scientists. The accompanying Aplia for Biology interactively guides students through the thought processes and procedures that scientists use in their research and helps them apply and synthesize specific content from the text. Overall, students learn how to think like scientists and engage in the scientific process themselves.
