We researched a number of Biology books for our sons' high school biology curriculum. We have found this course to be thorough and challenging, which was important to us. The authors have a great website with lots of supplements and additional information, including mini lectures for each chapter.

We've been using this as a reference book for middle school homeschoolers and it is straight-forward and user-friendly for that purpose.

But, of course, it is not perfect. One flaw we discovered this week: on page 21 is a beautiful chart dividing life into eight levels of organization (molecules, cells, groups of cells, organism, population, community, ecosystem and biosphere). As I showed this to my sons, the 7th grader immediately piped up, "Where do biomes fit in?" We just studied biomes, so of course that was on his mind.

Hmm, I thought. He's right: why aren't biomes included? Of course this led to a discussion of where biomes should be inserted -- which was a good critical thinking activity -- but still.

Eventually we discovered a different 'levels of organization' chart in Chp. 3 ("The Biosphere") and this second chart DOES include biomes -- right where we had already figured out they should go -- but divides life into only six levels: individual, population, community, ecosytem, BIOME, biosphere. Really? They couldn't be consistent on something this basic? Inconsistencies like this are unnerving to first time learners. In the book's defense, the chart in Chp. 3 represents the levels of organization studied by ecologists, so it is understandable that molecules, cells, and groups of cells (tissues, organs and organ systems) would be omitted; i.e., an organism is the basic unit of life studied by an ecologist. Yet this does not explain the omission of biomes from the first chart.

Notice also that the terminology is slightly different: "organism" is now "individual," and to make things even more confusing, the text refers to the organism/individual level as "the species level.

I picked up this book to supplement my Biology text, because my professor would often use pictures from here in her lecture slides. I found it helpful for a better all around understanding of many of the topics.

I was glad to see that this book actually was the ISBN that I searched for. In the past, I have searched for specific ISBN #'s and ordered item that came up from the search only to receive a different ISBN that the one I searched for and if the schools request certain ISBN #'s, there is a reason for it.
