Russell, Hertz, and McMillan spark studentsa curiosity about living systems instead of burying it under a mountain of disconnected facts. They engage students with what scientists know about the living world, how they know it, and what they still need to learn. By conveying the authoras passion for biological research, the text helps students cultivate the mental habits of scientists. The accompanying Aplia for Biology interactively guides students through the thought processes and procedures that scientists use in their research and helps them apply and synthesize specific content from the text.
