Human biology

Belk, Colleen M.

San Francisco ; Toronto : Benjamin Cummings, 2009.

1 v. (various pagings) : col. ill. ; 28 cm.

Human Biology is a new book for readers preparing for careers in human biology or anatomy & physiology. As in Belk and Borden's highly successful "Biology: Science for Life," science is presented as a story that is integrated into the narrative to motivate readers to read further and make real-life connections to the concepts they are learning. Critical thinking is emphasized through figure captions that encourage readers to think further,"Stop and Stretch" vignettes that ask them to reflect on earlier concepts, and end-of-chapter problems that pose questions that integrate and synthesize the chapter material. The unique presentation of molecular genetics early in the book (Chapter 4) allows the authors to apply molecular ideas in subsequent chapters.  Clear and friendly writing continues as a hallmark of these authors.
