Biology, an authoritative text with a diverse author team, focuses on the process of evolution to explain biodiversity. The book emphasizes problem-solving and the scientific method in its approach to cutting-edge content. The use of historical and experimental approaches offers students not only a current view of the field, but more importantly, how it evolved. The authors have tried to keep as much historical context as possible and provide information within an experimental framework throughout the text.About the Author:
