Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Colleen Belk and Virginia Borden Maier have been colleagues and collaborators for more than thirteen years. Both authors have adopted teaching styles at their respective universities, the University of Minnesota Duluth and St. John Fisher College, that capitalize on students’ natural curiosity about high-interest topics such as dieting, global warming, and organ donation to effectively teach fundamental course topics such as cell biology, photosynthesis, and physiology. Their classroom experience has informed every chapter to help students understand biological principles, develop critical thinking skills, apply biology to their own lives, and make the introductory course more enjoyable from both sides of the desk.

In addition to Biology: Science for Life, Colleen and Virginia are co-authors of Biology: Science for Life Laboratory Manual.

Format: Paperback
The content doesn't appear to be supported by facts or have been properly edited. In the most notable example, on page 408, the authors couldn't decide if phyto plankton produce 50% of the Earth's oxygen as noted in the text or 70% of the Earth's oxygen as noted in figure 16.23 which the text referenced. Both references are on the same page inches from one another.

The condition of the book isn't so great. One of the pages fell out upon opening it, and it seems like a lot more are soon to follow if I don't treat it very gingerly. It makes me rather nervous as I definitely don't want to be on the hook for the outrageously high buyout price.

This was expensive but still a better price than any of the other locations I found on the internet. College text books are a ripoff and have always been a ripoff.

I received this rental with the back cover torn, looking like someone sliced it with a box cutter. I don't want it coming back to me that I damaged the book.

This is a book that works. Very practical. When you maneuver your wrists in such a way then the pages are easily manipulated so as to expose ANOTHER TWO PAGES! UNBELIEVABLE! and as a bonus it even has some writing on it too. Something about what is fundamental in life and that the changing of life comes naturally and selectively or some other ethical hippy bs like that. have a nice day
