Written from the ground up for nonmajors, Discover Biology is the only introductory biology textbook to present consistently applied features in each chapter that not only demonstrate biology's everyday relevance, but teach students how to move from simply understanding core biological concepts to actively applying those concepts to our rapidly changing world. Discover Biology helps students become biologically literate students--to progress from science to scientific literacy.

Thoroughly revised and updated, Discover Biology, Second Edition, presents the essential concepts of modern biology in a text designed specifically for nonmajors. The authors emphasize a level of detail appropriate for nonmajors, freeing instructors to focus on the scientific issues-HIV, global climate change, DNA fingerprinting, genetic engineering, cancer-that students read about in the paper, vote on in elections, and face in their daily lives. With two new chapters, refined pedagogy and art programs, and a powerful ancillary package, Discover Biology, Second Edition, is the best choice for the nonmajors introductory course.

Written by a noted historian of science, this in-depth account traces how Watson and Crick achieved one of science's most dramatic feats: their 1953 discovery of the molecular structure of DNA.

Kenneth F. Schaffner compares the practice of biological and medical research and shows how traditional topics in philosophy of science—such as the nature of theories and of explanation—can illuminate the life sciences. While Schaffner pays some attention to the conceptual questions of evolutionary biology, his chief focus is on the examples that immunology, human genetics, neuroscience, and internal medicine provide for examinations of the way scientists develop, examine, test, and apply theories. Although traditional philosophy of science has regarded scientific discovery—the questions of creativity in science—as a subject for psychological rather than philosophical study, Schaffner argues that recent work in cognitive science and artificial intelligence enables researchers to rationally analyze the nature of discovery. As a philosopher of science who holds an M.D., he has examined biomedical work from the inside and uses detailed examples from the entire range of the life sciences to support the semantic approach to scientific theories, addressing whether there are "laws" in the life sciences as there are in the physical sciences. Schaffner's novel use of philosophical tools to deal with scientific research in all of its complexity provides a distinctive angle on basic questions of scientific evaluation and explanation.

The study of living matter is an important part of biology. Being able to recognize living matter and differentiate it from nonliving matter is a key component of the science curriculum. This volume is a straightforward, comprehensive guide to the study of living matter: what it s composed of, how it reproduces, how it reacts to the environment around it, and how it evolves. Readers will enjoy the bright photos and engaging information while learning an important part of the study of biology."

Molecular biology is the study of life at the cellular level. While this complex topic can be confusing, knowledge of molecular biology is crucial to understanding medical science and many other important disciplines. With its unique Japanese comic style, The Manga Guide to Molecular Biology is a gentle and fun cartoon guide to this vast topic. After sleeping their way through Molecular Biology 101, Ami and Rin are forced to take make-up classes. With the help of Dr. Moro and his virtual reality machine, they travel inside cells, meeting cell organelles, nuclei, and genes and chromosomes face-to-face. They examine proteins and amino acids, watch DNA replicate and cells divide, and meet exciting characters like Enzyme Man. Once the girls learn the fundamentals of genetics, they learn about recombinant technology, cloning, and the role of molecular biology in fighting diseases. With an engaging storyline and charming characters, The Manga Guide to Molecular Biology makes learning this essential discipline lively and painless.

Discover Biology takes an innovative approach to the teaching of the one-semester non-majors' biology course. Rather than overwhelming the non-major student with a mass of detail, secondary concepts, and vocabulary terms, the authors emphasize applied topics in biology, with the goal of improving students' biological literacy. Six major units address the diversity of life, cells, genetics, evolution, form and function, and interactions with the environment. Each chapter opens with a short vignette, providing context for the chapter content, and ends with an "evaluating the news" section that hones critical reasoning skills. Concise chapters, annotated figures, outstanding pedagogy, and a host of ancillaries make Discover Biology the clear choice for nonmajors' biological science survey courses.
