From the Publisher:

Greater accuracy than ever before! The Fourth Edition has been extensively reviewed by numerous expert reviewers.
A more modern treatment of basic chemistry in Chapter 2. There are clearer descriptions of the Major Elements of Life and better explanations of bonds and the chemical basis of the genetic code. New illustrations improve student understanding of the 'Atoms to Cells' focus of this chapter.
Over 1/3 of the art has been either carefully revised or is brand new, giving greater clarity than ever before. The text has always had superb correlation between textual material, artwork, and photos due to Kathleen Talaro's expertise as a scientific illustrator and photographer.
A completely new testbank has been written by coauthor Art Talaro. With approximately 100 questions per chapter, there is a greater variety and more challenging questions available.
Available with a loaded McGraw-Hill multimedia package: Microbes in Motion III, HyperClinic II, Electronic e-Text, and an Online Learning Center.
