Biology

Dr Suttons exciting text provides a comprehensive introduction to the core concepts of biology. Starting with an overview of the diversity of life, the author covers a range of subjects from the naming and grouping of organisms through natural selection, molecular and cell biology, genetics, reproduction, physiology, ecology and biotechnology. Written in a student-friendly style and with an emphasis on explaining concepts rather than cataloguing facts, the book is fully illustrated with copious diagrams and photographs. Exercises with answers are also included. Beginning students in biology or first-year undergraduates with biology as a subsidiary will find this book invaluable.
