Biologyis a comprehensive introductory biology textbook that covers biology in a traditional order, from the structure and function of the cell to the organization of the biosphere. The book centers on the evolution and diversity of organisms. It's no wonder that Sylvia Mader'sBiologycontinues to be a text that's appreciated as much by teachers as it is by the students who use it. The tenth edition is the epitome of Mader's expertise: Its concise, precise writing uses an economy of words to present the material as succinctly and clearly as possible, thereby enabling students to understand the concepts without necessarily asking the teacher to explain further.

Biology is now a tightly knit text that covers the concepts and principles of biology from the structure and function of the cell to the organization of the biosphere. It draws upon the entire world of living things to bring out an evolutionary theme that is introduced from the start. The concept of evolution is necessary to understanding the unity and diversity of life, and serves as a background for the study of ecological principles. Modern ecological problems, including the biodiversity crisis, are stressed throughout the text.
This introductory textbook covers the cell, genetics, evolution, behavior and ecology, plant structures and function, and animal structure and function. The seventh edition features a new chapter which discusses the current biodiversity crisis. The CD-ROM contains 100 animations and 200 learning activities.
This comprehensive introductory textbook covers biology traditionally - from the structure and function of the cell to the organization of the biosphere. The new 11th AP Edition ofBiologyfeatures integrated coverage of the newAP Biology Curriculum Frameworkwith Part Openers that provide an overview of the Big Idea as it relates to the chapters within the Part. In addition, each chapter begins with a guide to Following the Big Ideas and concludes with a Connecting the Concepts with the Big Ideas section. The preface includes information on the AP Biology course, the AP Exam, and an AP Correlation, while a complete AP Practice Exam can be found in the back of the book. An icon of science education, Sylvia Mader's dedication to her students, coupled with a concise writing style, has benefitted the education of thousands of students. The integration of this classic text and the digital world is now completed with the addition of Dr. Michael Windelspecht's expertise in the development of digital learning assets.

These assets allow teachers to easily design interactive tutorial materials, enhance online and traditional presentations, and assess the learning objectives and outcomes of the course. New pedagogical tools: Before You Begin: Students assess their mastery of prerequisite key concepts before proceeding further into the chapters Media Integration Hallmark Mader Art Program: The highly acclaimed artwork inBiologyhas become the hallmark of this flagship text Connect Plus: This web-based assignment and assessment platform includes an integrated eBook, dynamic links between the problems or questions assigned and the location in the eBook where they are covered, fully integrated self-study questions you can assign, pagination that matches the print text, embedded media, and text you can customise for students with notes and highlights.
The Study Guide is designed to accompany your text, Biology, ninth edition, by Sylvia S. Mader. A number of different approaches are used to help you achieve mastery of the chapter concepts.
Essentials of Biology is an introductory biology text for non-major students that combines Dr. Sylvia Mader's superb and accessible writing style with clear visuals, a comprehensive learning system, and abundant applications and relevancy. Essentials of Biology explains the principles of biology clearly and illustrates them in a captivating, easy-to-understand manner. It emphasizes the relevance of biology to students' lives within a framework of biodiversity and is organized around the major concepts of biology--cells theory, gene theory, evolution, the theory of homeostasis, and ecosystems. The integration of text and the digital world are now complete with the addition of Dr. Michael's Windelspecht's expertise in the development of digital learning assets. Dr Windelspecht has acted is the leading architect in the design of the Mader media content for McGraw-Hill's Connect Plus and Learn Smart.Connect Plus suite of learning tools. These assets will allow you to easily design interactive tutorial materials, enhance presentations in both the online and traditional environments, and assess the learning objectives and outcomes of your course.
In this edition, as in previous editions, each chapter presents the topic clearly and distinctly so that students will feel capable of achieving an adult level of understanding. Detailed, high-level scientific data and terminology are not included because Dr. Mader believes that true knowledge consists of working concepts rather than technical facility.
Instructors consistently ask for a human biology textbook that helps students develop an understanding of the main themes of biology while placing the material in the context of the human body. Mader's Human Biology was developed to fill this void. To accomplish the goal of improving scientific literacy, while establishing a foundation of knowledge in human biology and physiology, Human Biology integrates a tested, traditional learning system with modern digital and pedagogical approaches designed to stimulate and engage today's student. Multimedia Integration: Michael Windelspecht represents the new generation of digital authors. Through the integration of multimedia resources, such as videos, animations and MP3 files, and in the design of a new series of guided tutorials, Dr Windelspecht has worked to bring Dr. Mader's texts to the new generation of digital learners. A veteran of the online, hybrid, and traditional teaching environments, Dr. Windelspecht is well versed in the challenges facing today's students and educators.

The authors of the text identified several goals that guided them through the revision of Human Biology, Thirteenth Edition: build upon the strengths of the previous editions of the text, enhance the learning process by integrating content that appeals to today's students, deploy new pedagogical elements, including multimedia assets, to increase student interaction with the text, develop a new series of digital assets designed to engage the modern student and provide assessment of learning outcomes.
From the unique delivery of biology content, to the time tested art program, to the complete integration of the text with technology, Dr. Sylvia Mader has formed a teaching system that will both motivate and enable your students to understand and appreciate the wonders of all areas of biology. Inquiry into Life, 11e emphasizes the application of all areas of biology to knowledge of human concerns, what the students are able to relate to. This distinctive text was developed to stand apart from all other non-majors texts with a unique approach, unparalleled art, and a straightforward, succinct writing style that has been acclaimed by both users and reviewers.
This book will help entry-level students understand and enjoy the principles of human anatomy and physiology providing them up-to-date informative content with effective learning systems, piecing together the facts and fascination of human anatomy and physiology.
