Authoritative, thorough, and engaging, "Life: The Science of Biology" achieves an optimal balance of scholarship and teachability, never losing sight of either the science or the student. The first introductory text to present biological concepts through the research that revealed them, " Life" covers the full range of topics with an integrated experimental focus that flows naturally from the narrative. This approach helps to bring the drama of classic and cutting-edge research to the classroom--but always in the context of reinforcing core ideas and the innovative scientific thinking behind them. Students will experience biology not just as a litany of facts or a highlight reel of experiments, but as a rich, coherent discipline.Purves, William K. is the author of 'Life : The Science of Biology and Lecture Notebook', published 1992 under ISBN 9780716722786 and ISBN 071672278X.
