Synopsis

Concepts of Biology by Sylvia S. Mader

Concepts of Biology 3e recognizes the value of the traditional approach while still engaging students in the excitement of relevancy to themselves and the world around them. The text abounds with analogies and engaging illustrations as it proceeds from an examination of chemistry to the biosphere. A significant new feature of this edition is the integration of media asset into the chapter content. Virtually every section of the textbook is now linked to MP3 files, 3D and 2D animations of biological processes, and National Geographic and ScienCentral videos. In addition, McGraw-Hill offers a full suite of adaptive learning tools including LearnSmart, LearnSmart Labs, LearnSmart Prep, LearnSmart Achieve, and SmartBook, all designed to assess a student's existing knowledge base and adapt to particularly address deficiencies.

About the Author

Sylvia S. Mader has authored several nationally recognized biology texts published by McGraw Hill. Educated at Bryn Mawr College, Harvard University, Tufts University, and Nova Southeastern University, she holds degrees in both Biology and Education. Over the years she has taught at University of Massachusetts, Lowell; Massachusetts Bay Community College; Suffolk University; and Nathan Mayhew Seminars. Her ability to reach out to science-shy students led to the writing of her first text, Inquiry into Life, that is now in its thirteenth edition. Highly acclaimed for her crisp and entertaining writing style, her books have become models for others who write in the field of biology. Although her writing schedule is always quite demanding, Dr. Mader enjoys taking time to visit and explore the various ecosystems of the biosphere. Her several trips to the Florida Everglades and Caribbean coral reefs resulted in talks she has given to various groups around the country. She has visited the tundra in Alaska, the taiga in the Canadian Rockies, the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, and tropical rain forests in South America and Australia. A photo safari to the Serengeti in Kenya resulted in a number of photographs for her texts. She was thrilled to think of walking in Darwin's steps when she journeyed to the Galapagos Islands with a group of biology educators. Dr. Mader was also a member of a group of biology educators who traveled to China to meet with their Chinese counterparts and exchange ideas about the teaching of modern-day biology.
