Concepts in Biology (14th edition)
The origin of this book remains deeply rooted in our concern for the education of college students in the field of biology. We believe that large, thick books intimidate introductorylevel students who are already anxious about taking science courses. With each edition, we have worked hard to provide a book that is useful, interesting, and engaging to students while introducing them to the core concepts and current state of the science.
The Fourteenth Edition
There are several things about the fourteenth edition of Concepts in Biology that we find exciting. This revision, as with previous editions, is very much a collaborative effort. When we approach a revision, we carefully consider comments and criticisms of reviewers and discuss how to address their suggestions and concerns. As we proceed through the revision process, we solicit input from one another and we
critique each other’s work. This edition has several significant changes.
Opening Chapter Vignette
Nearly all of the chapter-opening vignettes are new. Each vignette is intended to draw the students into the chapter by showing how the material is relevant to their lives. To help meet this goal the vignettes have been redesigned to resemble a magazine layout to draw the attention of the reader.
In this edition, each major numbered heading ends with a Concept Review feature, which consists of a series of questions that probe the reader’s level of understanding of the material in the section. The purpose of this feature is to encourage the reader to review the material in the section if he or she cannot answer the questions.
Enhanced Visuals and Page Layout
The visual elements of a text are extremely important to the learning process. Over 150 figures are new or have been modified. The purpose of these changes is to more clearly illustrate a concept or show examples of material discussed in the text.
