Neil Campbell and Jane Reece's BIOLOGY remains unsurpassed as the most successful majors biology textbook in the world. This text has invited more than 4 million students into the study of this dynamic and essential discipline.The authors have restructured each chapter around a conceptual framework of five or six big ideas. An Overview draws students in and sets the stage for the rest of the chapter, each numbered Concept Head announces the beginning of a new concept, and Concept Check questions at the end of each chapter encourage students to assess their mastery of a given concept. New Inquiry Figures focus students on the experimental process, and new Research Method Figures illustrate important techniques in biology. Each chapter ends with a Scientific Inquiry Question that asks students to apply scientific investigation skills to the content of the chapter.
Neil A. Campbell combined the investigative nature of a research scientist with the soul of an experienced and caring teacher. He earned his M.A. in Zoology from UCLA and his Ph.D. in Plant Biology from the University of California, Riverside, where he received the Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2001. Dr. Campbell published numerous research articles on how certain desert plants thrive in salty soil and how sensitive plant (Mimosa) and other legumes move their leaves. His 30 years of teaching in diverse environments included general biology courses at Cornell University, Pomona College, and San Bernardino Valley College, where he received the college's first Outstanding Professor Award in 1986. Most recently Dr. Campbell was a visiting scholar in the Department of Botany and Plant Sciences at the University of California, Riverside. In addition to his authorship of this book, he coauthored Biology: Concepts & Connections and Essential Biology with Jane Reece. Each year, over 600,000 students worldwide use Campbell/Reece biology textbooks.
Jane B. Reece has worked in biology publishing since 1978, when she joined the editorial staff of Benjamin Cummings. Her education includes an A.B. in Biology from Harvard University, an M.S. in Microbiology from Rutgers University, and a Ph.D. in Bacteriology from the University of California, Berkeley. At UC Berkeley and later as a post-doctoral fellow in genetics at Stanford University, her research focused on genetic recombination in bacteria. Dr. Reece taught biology at Middlesex County College (New Jersey) and Queensborough Community College (New York). As an editor at Benjamin Cummings, Dr. Reece played major roles in a number of successful textbooks. In addition to being a coauthor with Neil Campbell on BIOLOGY, Biology: Concepts & Connections, and Essential Biology, she coauthored The World of the Cell, Third Edition, with W.M. Becker and M.F. Poenie.
My interest | 5 stars: I love, love science. Any textbook based on science is something interesting to me. More specifically, I am deeply interested in anatomy and biology. I have bought many books pertaining to science, mostly for required college classes. This one was also bought for a college class.
Engaging | 4 stars: The book is definitely engaging. The cover is beautiful, I enjoyed looking at the picture of a cute animal! The pictures and diagrams within the book are also engaging, and help with further understanding of the material.
Ease of understanding | 5 stars: I found the book easy to understand. The titles, subheadings, diagrams, pictures, and general body of the book were easy to understand and made the intimidating facts much clearer.
Index | 5 stars: I find the index, table of contents, and glossary very important features of any textbook. If I come across a difficult term, I refer to these areas of the book. If I need to study for a test, I refer to those areas. This book is great and contains all of those parts, making it easy to study from.
I've downloaded this textbook on a tablet and a desktop computer. When I try to open the book on a laptop of mine, I receive a dialog that titled 'License Limit Reached' with a message "You have exceeded the limit on the number of devices that can read this item" (see attached screenshot).
That is the reason I'm giving this e-Textbook a one-star review. I don't feel its unreasonable to want to read this book on a desktop, laptop, and tablet.
i should have a refund from Pearson for the necessity to have purchased this book!!!
A loose leaf book is a great idea. To insert my own loose leaf notes without writing in the margins of the text or attempting to manipulate the $%$# eBook features to put in my own notes is good. I do not have to defile the loose leaf pages with scribbling.
To those professors adopting a Biology text, I say emphatically, look at the eBook #$$% again!! One must be able to have an expensive computer to see two pages two at a time, a big computer screen, one which is NOT portable to class. The ability to split screen the text with the assignments is not really very good either. I still have to toggle the two screens. Even with toggling, I could not see an entire concept map at one time, which necessitated more money out for this loose leaf book too. God Pearson!! You are not thoughtful.
Yes!!!, the e-study resources are wonderful. Animations, downloadable mp3 topics, ... But, Pearson, you are just plain greedy!!$ You HAD to steal for more than $600 an eBook AND this loose leaf text from my poverty.
I sleep on the floor. I have one chair and three changes of clothes only.
This book should be included with the eBook.
poverty stricken j
Science was always my favorite subject in school, Biology in particular was my top favorite. Most of the material I haven't seen since I was in high school. When I found out I had to take the FTCE, I was very nervous! However, whenever I came across any concept I couldn't grasp, I turned to this book (which has EVERYTHING). I just took the FTCE on Saturday, and I passed!! I couldn't have done it without this book. Later on I plan to buy this book just to have it because it's such an amazing book. It's well-written and lays out all the concepts in a way that is easy understand, even for me!
I'll be passing the name of this book along to my colleagues.
