Biology

by Julian Sutton

Part of the Macmillan Foundations Series Series

Biology Synopsis

Dr Sutton's exciting text provides a comprehensive introduction to the core concepts of biology. Starting with an overview of the diversity of life, the author covers a range of subjects from the naming and grouping of organisms through natural selection, molecular and cell biology, genetics, reproduction, physiology, ecology and biotechnology. Written in a student-friendly style and with an emphasis on explaining concepts rather than cataloguing facts, the book is fully illustrated with copious diagrams and photographs. Exercises with answers are also included. Beginning students in biology or first-year undergraduates with biology as a subsidiary will find this book invaluable.

Biology Press Reviews

'An impressive piece of work.' - Jon Turney, University College London 'It is lively, stimulating and commendably broad in its coverage.' - John Hanks, former Chief Examiner, A level Biology 'The major advantage that this publication offers over competitors lies in its everyday almost simple language and style. This is what makes it significantly different, with excellent analogies making theoretical ideas and concepts understandable to the target audience...the author's explanations are clear and his questioning approach stimulates the reader and aids the realisation that much is left to be discovered and elucidated in biology.' - Kevin Edwardson, Science Coordinator, Sheffield College 'An impressive piece of work.' - Jon Turney, University College London 'The major advantage that this publication offers over its competitors lies in its everyday almost simple language and style...with excellent analogies making theoretical ideas and concepts understandable to the target audience...' - Kevin Edwardson, Science Coordinator, Sheffield College
