The science of biology evolves. The science classroom and lab evolve. In this edition, as all the time, Life: The Science of Biology evolves with them, in innovative, authoritative, and captivating ways.
From the first edition to the present, Life has set the usual as the most balanced experiment-based introductory biology text. This edition builds on this legacy, again teaching fundamental concepts and the up to date developments by taking students step-by-step through the research that revealed them.
Volume I: The Cell and Heredity (Chapters 1-20)
Volume II: Evolution, Diversity and Ecology (Chapters 1, 21-33, 54-59)
Volume III: Plants and Animals (Chapters 1, 34-53)
Another first, the new edition of Life is printed on paper earning the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) label, the “gold standard” in green paper products. Life paper includes 10% pre-consumer waste, 10% post-consumer waste, and is manufactured from wood from well-managed sustainable forests. Additionally, Life’s green initiatives include:
• 5% soy based ink

All of which also earn us Courier Printing Company’s Green Edition designation for reducing our environmental footprint. The environmental savings we’ve got achieved on the first printing on my own are:
• Choice of trees saved: 469
