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
  • Make connections outside of class with MasteringBiology®, the most widely-used online assessment and tutorial program for biology
Key Topics: Themes in the Study of Life, The Chemical Context of Life, Water and Life, Carbon and the Molecular Diversity of Life, The Structure and Function of Large Biological Molecules, A Tour of the Cell, Membrane Structure and Function,

An Introduction to Metabolism, Cellular Respiration: Cellular Respiration and Fermentation, Photosynthesis,

Cell Communication, The Cell Cycle, Meiosis and Sexual Life Cycles, Mendel and the Gene Idea, The Chromosomal Basis of Inheritance, The Molecular Basis of Inheritance, From Gene to Protein, Regulation of Gene Expression, Viruses, Biotechnology,

Genomes and Their Evolution, Descent with Modification: A Darwinian View of Life, The Evolution of Populations, The Origin of Species, The History of Life on Earth, Phylogeny and the Tree of Life, Bacteria and Archaea, Protists, Plant Diversity I: How Plants Colonized Land, Plant Diversity II: The Evolution of Seed Plants, Fungi, An Overview of Animal Diversity, An Introduction to Invertebrates, The Origin and Evolution of Vertebrates, Plant Structure, Growth, and Development, Resource Acquisition and Transport in Vascular Plants, Soil and Plant Nutrition, Angiosperm Reproduction and Biotechnology, Plant Responses to Internal and External Signals, Basic Principles of Animal Form and Function, Animal Nutrition, Circulation and Gas Exchange,The Immune System, Osmoregulation and Excretion, Hormones and the Endocrine System, Animal Reproduction, Animal Development, Neurons, Synapses, and Signaling, Nervous Systems, Sensory and Motor Mechanisms, Animal Behavior, An Introduction to Ecology and the Biosphere, Population Ecology, Community Ecology, Ecosystems and Restoration Ecology, Conservation Biology and Global Change

About the Author

Jane B. Reece As Neil Campbell’s longtime collaborator, Jane Reece has participated in every edition of BIOLOGY . Earlier, Jane taught biology at Middlesex County College and Queensborough Community College. Her research as a doctoral student and postdoc focused on genetic recombination in bacteria. Besides her work on BIOLOGY , she has been a coauthor on Biology: Concepts & Connections , Essential Biology , and The World of the Cell .   Lisa A. Urry Lisa Urry (Units 1-3) is a professor and developmental biologist, and recent Chair of the Biology Department, at Mills College. After graduating from Tufts University with a double major in Biology and French, Lisa completed her Ph.D. in molecular and developmental biology at MIT. She has published a number of research papers, most of them focused on gene expression during embryonic and larval development in sea urchins. Lisa is also deeply committed to promoting opportunities for women in science education and research.   Michael L. Cain Michael Cain (Units 4 and 5) is an ecologist and evolutionary biologist who is now writing full time. Michael earned a joint degree in Biology and Math at Bowdoin College, an M.Sc. from Brown University, and a Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Cornell University. As a faculty member at New Mexico State University and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, he taught a wide range of courses including introductory biology, ecology, evolution, botany, and conserva
