Summary

Biology of Humans: Concepts, Applications and Issues is loaded with relevant applications to students' bodies, health, and lives. It explains concepts clearly and immediately applies them to situations familiar to students. Special Topic chapters allow deeper exploration into applied areas like how drugs affect the brain and behavior, the threat of infectious diseases, nutrition and weight control, and many others. "Issues" boxes address health, social, and environmental concerns. Students are asked to engage with key ideas through activities and bioethical questions. Because visualization is so important to understanding biology, the illustrations have been carefully designed to clarify concepts while pleasing the eye.
