The Third Edition of Biology: Science for Life continues to draw readers into biology through engaging stories that make difficult topics more accessible and understandable. Colleen Belk and Virginia Borden strive to make teaching and learning biology a better experience from both sides of the desk. The authors draw from their teaching experiences to create a book with a flowing narrative and innovative features that require readers to become more active participants in their learning. Each chapter presents the material through a story that draws from real life examples, making the reading more engaging and accessible to todayís readers. These stories strive to demystify topics found in biology.

The Third Edition of this book features a completely re-designed art program and uses the authorsí teaching experiences to create student-centered features such as the new Savvy Reader, Visualize This, and Stop and Stretch to motivate and encourage reader learning. The new A Closer Look allows instructors the opportunity to expand on certain important biological topics. For instructors who would like to cover Animal Structure and Function and Plant Biology, an alternate edition of this book, Biology: Science for Life with Physiology, is also available.

Each chapter presents topics in biology through a story, helping students to understand important biological processes with concrete examples and applications. The authorís current classroom teaching experience allows students to test and practice new ideas every day, helping to make the text more engaging and student-approved.The authors use analogies in their writing and within the art program to help students better understand difficult concepts.
