Description

The world’s most successful majors biology text and media program are better than ever!

 

The 11th Edition of the best-selling Biology: A Global Approach, Global Edition, sets students on the path to success in biology through its clear and engaging narrative, superior skills instruction, innovative use of art and photos, and fully integrated media resources to enhance teaching and learning.

 

To engage learners in developing a deeper understanding of biology, the 11th Editionchallenges them to apply their knowledge and skills to a variety of new hands-on activities and exercises in the text and online. Content updates throughout the text reflect rapidly evolving research, and new learning tools include Problem-Solving Exercises, Visualizing Figures, Visual Skills Questions, and more.

 

Features

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content, which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

 

About the book

 

Content Updates: Carefully selected content updates throughout the text reflect rapidly evolving research in the fields of:

·    Genomics

·    Gene editing technology (CRISPR)

·    Microbiomes

·    Impacts of climate change across the biological hierarchy

·    Significant revisions have been made to Unit 8, The Ecology of Life, including a deeper integration of evolutionary principles.

Skill Development and Practice: The 11th Edition engages students by challenging them to apply their knowledge and skills to a variety of hands-on activities and exercises in the text and online.

·    Problem-Solving Exercises guide students in applying scientific skills and interpreting real data in the context of solving a real-world problem. A version of each Problem-Solving Exercise can also be assigned in MasteringBiology™.

·    Visualizing Figures and Visual Skills Questions are designed to improve students’ ability to interpret and create visual representations of processes and structures in biology. These skills are an essential foundation for understanding diagrams and models that students will encounter in higher-level courses and the scientific literature. For more practice, each Visualizing Figure is accompanied by an automatically graded assignment in MasteringBiology with answer-specific feedback for students.

Make Connections: The 11th Edition helps students make connections visually across biology topics.

·    Make Connections Figures include Figure 37.10, “Mutualism Across Kingdoms and Domains,” and Figure 56.29, “Climate Change Has Effects at All Levels of Biological Organization.” Make Connections Figure 18.27 on breast cancer has been expanded to illustrate the role of cell signaling in one type of breast cancer and its treatment.

 

Active Learning and Assessment: Biology: A Global Approach, Eleventh Edition, Global Edition provides students with multiple opportunities to deepen their understanding of biology:

 

In the text:

·    Problem-Solving Exercises using real data guide students in applying scientific skills and interpreting real data in the context of solving a real-world problem. A version of each Problem-Solving Exercise can also be assigned in MasteringBiology.

·    Visualizing Figures and Visual Skills Questions are designed to improve students’ ability to interpret and create visual representations of processes and structures in biology. These skills are an essential foundation for understanding diagrams and models that students will encounter in higher-level courses and the scientific literature. For more practice, each Visualizing Figure is accompanied by an automatically graded assignment in MasteringBiology with answer-specific feedback for students.

·    QR codes and URLs at the end of every chapter give students quick access to Vocabulary Self-Quizzes and Practice Tests on their smartphones, tablets, and computers.
