Solomon, Berg, and Martin's BIOLOGY--often described as the best majors text for LEARNING biology--is now also a top choice for teaching the course! Not only helping students understand and retain the material with a superbly integrated learning system that guides them through every chapter, the Eighth Edition is a major revision that gives instructors enhanced coverage of key topical areas. Cutting-edge attention to cell communication (a new chapter), genetics (enhanced, current coverage of every chapter in this unit), and other key topics give you the coverage and authority that you demand for your majors course. The impressive, completely revamped art program (with many figures correlated with animated figures in ThomsonNOW) enables students to interact with the material to reinforce their understanding. In addition, to shorten the time you spend on course prep, the Eighth Edition is accompanied by many innovative online and multimedia resources, including PowerLecture (a one-stop tool that makes creating interest-grabbing multimedia lectures an easy process) and JoinIn (the easiest audience response system to use, so you can interact with students even in large lecture hall settings).Solomon is the author of 'Biology Volume II', published 2006 under ISBN 9780495309796 and ISBN 0495309796.
