About this app

Biology is designed for multi-semester biology courses for science majors. It is grounded on an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand.

To meet the needs of today’s instructors and students, some content has been strategically condensed while maintaining the overall scope and coverage of traditional texts for this course. Instructors can customize the book, adapting it to the approach that works best in their classroom.

Biology also includes an innovative art program that incorporates critical thinking and clicker questions to help students understand—and apply—key concepts.

Unit 1: The Chemistry of Life. Our opening unit introduces students to the sciences, including the scientific method and the fundamental concepts of chemistry and physics that provide a framework within which learners comprehend biological processes.

Unit 2: The Cell. Students will gain solid understanding of the structures, functions, and processes of the most basic unit of life: the cell.

Unit 3: Genetics. Our comprehensive genetics unit takes learners from the earliest experiments that revealed the basis of genetics through the intricacies of DNA to current applications in the emerging studies of biotechnology and genomics.

Unit 4: Evolutionary Processes. The core concepts of evolution are discussed in this unit with examples illustrating evolutionary processes. Additionally, the evolutionary basis of biology reappears throughout the textbook in general discussion and is reinforced through special call-out features highlighting specific evolution-based topics.

Unit 5: Biological Diversity. The diversity of life is explored with detailed study of various organisms and discussion of emerging phylogenetic relationships. This unit moves from viruses to living organisms like bacteria, discusses the organisms formerly grouped as protists, and devotes multiple chapters to plant and animal life.

Unit 6: Plant Structure and Function. Our plant unit thoroughly covers the fundamental knowledge of plant life essential to an introductory biology course.

Unit 7: Animal Structure and Function. An introduction to the form and function of the animal body is followed by chapters on specific body systems and processes. This unit touches on the biology of all organisms while maintaining an engaging focus on human anatomy and physiology that helps students connect to the topics.

Unit 8: Ecology. Ecological concepts are broadly covered in this unit, with features highlighting localized, real-world issues of conservation and biodiversity.

I'm only on the first chapter so far, but I'm really enjoying learning! I feel like I've learned a lot, too. Sometimes gets a little technical for me, considering I've never taken any chemistry classes at all, and only the basic required biology class ten years ago in high school, but with the help of another app to help me study and get more familiar with the periodic table, I've adjusted so far! I think so, anyway.

The interface could be improved just a little bit but I am perfectly satisfied on the app as a whole. The content is accurate but I haven't got through all of it yet. It is very helpful since I will start college next year and I am just so deeply in love with Biology. P400 upgrade is worth it!

THANK YOU!! Thank you so much to the creators of this app i am an 11th grader and I have worked so hard to understand Biology but I just cant get it. I have a Dissability that really hinders my affect on processing information and it takes me longer to get things after being taught. What this app allows me to do is Learn reliable information in a step by step learning process that is a lot easier for me to learn. Thank you thank you thank you!
