Summary
Dr. Sylvia Mader's succinct, precise writing style. Sylvia's writing is what has earned her a reputation as one of the most successful introductory biology textbook authors ever, and it is the most compelling feature of this text. Updated Boxed Readings Throughout --Human Biology features three different types of boxed readings. Theses readings have been thoroughly updated by Dr. Mader, as well as experts in the field, throughout the book to remain current. A complete set of chapter learning aids includes a listing of chapter concepts, brief concept summaries within the chapter, boldface key terms, summary, and objective questions. Students value tools within the text that help them grasp the concepts. Customize this book through Primis Online! This title is tentatively planned to be part of the Primis Online Database: www.mhhe.com/primis/online Benefit : Professors can customize this book to meet their exact needs and mix and match with other items on Primis Online--allowing them maximum choice and flexibility. Instructors can choose between two delivery formats: custom printed books (in black and white) or custom eBooks (in color). Emphasis on Homeostasis -- Homeostasis is emphasized throughout the text. The homeostasis sections at the end of specific chapters and the accompanying homeostasis illustrations, have been revised for greater clarity and explain in depth how the body systems work together to maintain homeostasis. -- Product Description
