Fine tuned for greater clarity and a more logical flow of ideas, Starr and McMillan's HUMAN BIOLOGY, Seventh Edition, presents core areas of human biology with a focused presentation that is ideal for non-majors. Highlighting biology's relevance, each chapter opens with an "Impacts, Issues" vignette on a human biology-related issue or research finding in the news, such as the obesity epidemic, vaccinations against bioweapons, and genetic engineering. Within the chapter, students see how basic concepts help them think critically about the issue. In addition, each chapter's "How Would You Vote?" question invites students to weigh in on a current issue and deepen their understanding through online exercises. Students will find relevant materials cross referenced from chapter to chapter, reinforcing how biological concepts build on one another throughout the book. The text's carefully integrated instructor and student resources--ThomsonNOW? and JoinIn? on TurningPoint®--help you assess your students and make learning more interactive. For instructors, the PowerLecture multimedia manager saves time on lecture prep--with one DVD--by integrating all relevant resources in each chapter's Microsoft PowerPoint lecture, so there's no more hassling with multiple media files.Starr, Cecie is the author of 'Human Biology With Infotrac ', published 2006 under ISBN 9780495015963 and ISBN 0495015962.
