There are almost one third of a million species of plants which range in form from unicellular algae a few microns in diameter to gigantic trees that can grow to a height of 100 meters. Plant Life makes sense of the bewildering diversity of plants by treating them not just as photosynthetic factories, but as living organisms that are the survivors of millions of years of evolutionary struggle. The book examines plants from an evolutionary perspective to show how such a wide range of life forms has evolved and continues to thrive. The book is divided into three main sections. The first introductory section sets out the necessary background of evolutionary and taxonomic theory and introduces a classification of living plants based on the ways in which they have evolved. The second part investigates how the challenges of life in the water and on land have led to the evolution of the major taxonomic groups of the plants, and describes the key adaptations that have contributed to the success of each group. The final section shows how the contrasting environments of the world's major climatic zones have led to the evolution of such different floras as those of tropical rainforests, prairies and deserts. This section introduces a fascinating range of plants with ingenious and often bizarre methods of survival and reproduction. The book is enriched by detailed case studies, points for discussion and suggestions for further investigation. In addition, extensive color plates and line drawings bring the world of plants vividly to life. Clear classification charts and a full glossary are also useful. Plant Life is an essential elementary text for undergraduate students and should prove a breath of fresh air for jaded botanists who are accustomed to the traditional taxonomic grind through the plant kingdom. New, environmental approach in keeping with modern course content. Beautifully written in a clear, concise and accessible style. Extensive colour plates, electron micrographs and line drawings bring the world of plants vividly to life. Uses carefully chosen examples of species in each group, so that students are not overwhelmed with excessive information and species lists. Discussion questions at the end of chapters encourages further reading and provides essay topics for teachers. Clear classification charts and a full glossary provide useful material for revision.

The chief goal in this textbook is to show students how calculus relates to biology, with a style that maintains rigor without being overly formal. The text motivates and illustrates the topics of calculus with examples drawn from many areas of biology, including genetics, biomechanics, medicine, pharmacology, physiology, ecology, epidemiology, and evolution, to name a few. Particular attention has been paid to ensuring that all applications of the mathematics are genuine, and references to the primary biological literature for many of these has been provided so that students and instructors can explore the applications in greater depth. Although the focus is on the interface between mathematics and the life sciences, the logical structure of the book is motivated by the mathematical material. Students will come away from a course based on this book with a sound knowledge of mathematics and an understanding of the importance of mathematical arguments. Equally important, they will also come away with a clear understanding of how these mathematical concepts and techniques are central in the life sciences.

Do you want an easier way to learn biology terms? How about a vocabulary tool for medicine, zoology, and life sciences? Science Roots teaches the roots in over 160 study terms from Apologia's biology textbook in the same sequence as the book, plus almost 50 roots from other life sciences. Learning one root can unlock as many as nine study terms from your course. Dr. Wile, author of the Apologia series, calls it "a valuable study tool." As you learn the roots, you learn your biology terms more easily, you understand biology better, and you gain a tool to help all future science studies. Start it in your biology year, or start a year early and spread it over two years. Non-consumable. For basic roots, see Vocabulary Vine.
