This is a readable biology textbook with ample illustrations and photographs, drawing the reader in. It is an informative, quality book, for the advanced student who wishes to learn more about the complexity of life on this planet: plant, animal, and human. It would make a wonderful shelf resource for the highschool aged homeschooler with scientific or naturalist interests.
