Editorial Reviews

Review

"Starr offers a unique mix of readability and completeness not available in any other non-majors text."

"My students do read this text. They donÂ't always read the text from other courses I offer, but this one, they read."

"One point that I really like about the Starr chapter is its introduction of microbes in current events, such as West Nile Virus and Mad Cow. This coverage should certainly interest students to learn more about these groups."

About the Author

For the past two decades, Cecie Starr has been known as one of the best-selling biology textbook authors. Her texts, appreciated for their clarity in both the written word and the visual representation of biological concepts, include multiple editions of Biology: the Unity and Diversity of Life, Biology: Concepts and Applications, and Biology today and Tomorrow. Her original dream was to become an architect. Instead of building houses, she now builds, with care and attention to detail, incredible texts based on this philosophy: "I invite students into a chapter through an intriguing story. Once inside, they get the great windows that biologists construct on the world of life. Biology is not just another house. It is a conceptual mansion. I hope to do it justice."

Format: Paperback
This was the correct biology book for my daughter, however the lab manual was not the one she needed. It was very unclear what the ISBN was for the manual.

Cheap college text books. What can go wrong? The book was exactly what I expected, and I didn't pay much for it.

Format: Hardcover
Interesting college textbook, worth having both for college biology and for a reference book for the home library. I have brought it into middle school sometimes to allow students to look through it and see pictures and read a little. It gives them a good point of comparison to compare what they have already studied and what they might study in college.

The girls especially like to see the pictures of embryos and how they develop, at various stages in the mother's womb. Sections on mutations also, demonstrate that most mutations are destructive rather than upward. The genetics section, how chromosomes duplicate, is wonderfully illustrated. There are so many great photos and illustrations in this textbook.

The book is well-designed, easy to read, easy to follow, digestable. You really couldn't ask for anything more in the way of a biology textbook.
