Building on the Key Concepts chapter framework of previous editions, Campbell BIOLOGY Global Edition helps students keep sight of the “big picture” by encouraging them to:

  • Make connections across chapters in the text, from molecules to ecosystems, with new Make Connections Questions
  • Make connections between classroom learning, research breakthroughs, and the real world with new Impact Figures
  • Make connections to the overarching theme of evolution in every chapter with new Evolution sections
  • Make connections at a higher cognitive level through new Summary of Key Concepts Questions and Write About a Theme Questions
  • Make connections outside of class withMasteringBiology®, the most widely-used online assessment and tutorial program for biology

 Campbell BIOLOGY Global Edition makes biology more globally relevant through:

  • Significant new material in the diversity and ecology units, contributed by educators from around the globe.
  • International examples and photos, replacing some North American ones
  • Interviews with prominent international biologists, replacing some of the North American interviews

5.0 out of 5 stars The best all-round text book for an undergrad 6 Nov 2012
By mh502
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Covers all the important concepts across the whole field of biology, expressed in a way that is easy to understand with the aid of lots of diagrams. The mastering biology kit is so good it should be sold as an online course by itself. Have made lots of good use of it in the 6 weeks I have had it, especially the practice tests which are instantly reviewed explaining right and wrong answers. Also it is worth mentioning a lot of the concepts are applied so in essays etc. you have various examples to show your background knowledge and outside reading of the subject.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just applied for a Biology masters without having a degree in Biology so I needed to pass a test to get in. I mostly used this book (alot). I passed. It is excellently arranged and ordered and covers most topics in enough detail for the undergraduate syllabus.

We were recommended this as extra reading but it only covers basic principles and doesn't really go into great depth in any topics, do not buy if you do not need this as compulsory reading

It's exactly what I ordered, the loss of a star however is due to the corners of the book being damaged a little despite the huge box and packaging it came in.
