9780321558237: Campbell Biology

Helping Students Make Connections Across Biology Campbell BIOLOGY is the unsurpassed leader in introductory biology. The text's hallmark values--accuracy, currency, and passion for teaching and learning--have made it the most successful college introductory biology book for eight consecutive editions. Building on the Key Concepts chapter framework of previous editions, Campbell BIOLOGY, Ninth Edition helps students keep sight of the "big picture" by encouraging them to: * Make connections across chapters in the text, from molecules to ecosystems, with new Make Connections Questions * Make connections between classroom learning, research breakthroughs, and the real world with new Impact Figures * Make connections to the overarching theme of evolution in every chapter with new Evolution sections * Make connections at a higher cognitive level through new Summary of Key Concepts Questions and Write About a Theme Questions

Neil A. Campbell

Neil Campbell combined the investigative nature of a research scientist with the soul of an experienced and caring teacher. He earned his M.A. in Zoology from UCLA and his Ph.D. in Plant Biology from the University of California, Riverside, where he received the Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2001. Neil published numerous research articles on desert and coastal plants and how the sensitive plant (Mimosa) and other legumes move their leaves. His 30 years of teaching in diverse environments included general biology courses at Cornell University, Pomona College, and San Bernardino Valley College, where he received the college’s first Outstanding Professor Award in 1986. Neil was a visiting scholar in the Department of Botany and Plant Sciences at the University of California, Riverside. In addition to his authorship of this book, he coauthored Biology: Concepts & Connections and Essential Biology with Jane Reece. For the Ninth Edition of this book, we honor Neil’s contributions to biology education by adopting the title Campbell BIOLOGY.
