Book Preface

We are honored to present the Eleventh Edition of Campbell BIOLOGY. For the last three decades, Campbell BIOLOGY has been the leading college text in the biological sciences. It has been translated into 19 languages and has provided millions of students with a solid foundation in college-level biology. This success is a testament not only to Neil Campbell’s original vision but also to the dedication of hundreds of reviewers (listed on pages xxviii–xxxi), who, together with editors, artists, and contributors, have shaped and inspired this work.

Our goals for the Eleventh Edition include:

increasing visual literacy through new figures, questions, and exercises that build students’ skills in understanding and creating visual representations of biological structures and processes asking students to practice scientific skills by applying scientific skills to real-world problems supporting instructors by providing teaching modules with tools and materials for introducing, teaching, and assessing important and often challenging topics integrating text and media to engage, guide, and inform students in an active process of inquiry and learning

Our starting point, as always, is our commitment to crafting text and visuals that are accurate, are current, and reflect our passion for teaching biology.

New to This Edition

Here we provide an overview of the new features that we have developed for the Eleventh Edition; we invite you to explore pages ix–xxvi for more information and examples.

Visualizing Figures and Visual Skills Questions give students practice in interpreting and creating visual representations in biology. The Visualizing Figures have embedded questions that guide students in exploring how diagrams, photographs, and models represent and reflect biological systems and processes. Assignable questions are also available in MasteringBiology to give students practice with the visual skills addressed in the figures.

Problem-Solving Exercises challenge students to apply scientific skills and interpret data in solving real-world problems. These exercises are designed to engage students through compelling case studies and provide practice with data analysis skills. Problem-Solving Exercises have assignable versions in MasteringBiology. Some also have more extensive “Solve It” investigations to further explore a given topic.

Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules on key topics provide instructors with assignments to use before and after class, as well as in-class activities that use clickers or Learning Catalytics™ for assessment.

Integrated text and media: Media references in the printed book direct students to the wealth of online self-study resources available to them in the Study Area section of MasteringBiology. In eText 2.0 will also be integrated directly into the eText. The new online learning tools include:

Get Ready for This Chapter questions provide a quick check of student understanding of the background information needed to learn a new chapter’s content, with feedback to bolster their preparation.

Figure Walkthroughs guide students through key figures with narrated explanations, figure markups, and questions that reinforce important points. Additional questions can be assigned in MasteringBiology.

More than 450 animations and videos bring biology to life. These include resources from HHMI BioInteractive that engage students in topics from the discovery of the double helix to evolution. QR codes and URLs within the Chapter Review provide easy access to Vocabulary Self-Quizzes and Practice Tests for each chapter that can be used on smartphones, tablets, and computers.

Interviews from the First Edition through the Eleventh Edition of Campbell BIOLOGY are referenced in the chapter where they are most relevant. The interviews show students the human side of science by featuring diverse scientists talking about how they became interested in what they study, how they began, and what inspires them.
