Description

So you plan on majoring in Biology. Why wouldn't you want to use what's been described as the best majors' text for learning the subject? That's what you get with Solomon, Martin, Martin and Berg's BIOLOGY. Working like a built-in study guide, the integrated learning system guides you through the material, starting with key concepts for each chapter and learning objectives for each section. Check your grasp of key points before moving on by answering Checkpoint questions at the end of each section. Reinforce your understanding of the learning objectives with chapter summaries, followed by the opportunity to test your new knowledge. To further help you 'get it,' the eleventh edition uses themes--among others, the evolution of life and the inter-relationship of structure and function--as well as interactive online and multimedia resources. Ready to go for it? Then go for BIOLOGY.

Author Biography:

Dr. Eldra Solomon has written several leading college-level textbooks in Biology and in Human Anatomy and Physiology. Her books have been translated into more than 10 languages. Dr. Solomon earned an M.S. from the University of Florida and an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of South Florida. She taught Biology and Nursing students for more than 20 years. In addition to being a biologist and science author, Dr. Solomon is a bio-psychologist with a special interest in the neurophysiology of traumatic experience. Her research has focused on the neurological, endocrine and psychological effects of trauma, including Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and development of maladaptive coping strategies. Dr. Solomon has presented her research at many national and international conferences, and her work has been published in leading professional journals. She has been profiled more than 30 times in leading publications, including WHO'S WHO IN AMERICA, WHO'S WHO IN SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING, WHO'S WHO IN MEDICINE AND HEALTHCARE, WHO'S WHO IN AMERICAN EDUCATION, WHO'S WHO OF AMERICAN WOMEN and WHO'S WHO IN THE WORLD.

Dr. Diana Martin is Professor Emeritus and former Director of General Biology, Division of Life Sciences at Rutgers University. Dr. Martin received an M.S. from Florida State University, where she studied the chromosomes of related plant species to understand their evolutionary relationships. She earned a Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin, where she studied the genetics of the fruit fly--Drosophila melanogaster--and then conducted postdoctoral research at Princeton University. Dr. Martin taught General Biology and other courses at Rutgers for over 30 years and has been involved in writing textbooks since 1988. She is grateful that her decision to study Biology in college led to a career that allows her to share her excitement about all aspects of the life science. Dr. Linda Berg is an award-winning teacher and textbook author. She received a B.S. in Science Education, an M.S. in Botany, and a Ph.D. in Plant Physiology from the University of Maryland. Her research focused on the evolutionary implications of steroid biosynthetic pathways in various organisms. Dr. Berg taught at the University of Maryland at College Park for 17 years and at St. Petersburg College in Florida for eight years. During her career, she taught introductory courses in Biology, Botany and Environmental Science to thousands of students. At the University of Maryland, she received numerous teaching and service awards. Dr. Berg is also the recipient of many national and regional awards, including the National Science Teachers Association Award for Innovations in College Science Teaching, the Nation's Capital Area Disabled Student Services Award and the Washington Academy of Sciences Award in University Science Teaching. During her career as a professional science writer, Dr. Berg has authored or coauthored several leading college science textbooks. Her writing reflects her teaching style and her love of science. Dr. Charles Martin is Professor Emeritus of Cell Biology and Neuroscience at Rutgers University. He received his Ph.D. in Genetics from Florida State University and engaged in postdoctoral research in genetics and membrane biology at the University of Texas at Austin. Throughout his career at Rutgers, he has taught General Biology as well as undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in Genetics and Molecular Cell Biology. An award-winning teacher, Dr. Martin was named Professor of the Year in 2011 by the Molecular Biosciences Graduate Student Association. His research on gene regulation of membrane protein enzyme systems in yeast and other fungi illustrates the interdisciplinary nature of the life sciences, and has been published in high-ranking journals and presented in invited lectures at national and international scientific meetings. He has served as an editorial board member of the Journal of Biological Chemistry and as the Chair of the Gordon Research Conference on the Molecular Cell Biology of Lipids. He has also consulted for numerous biotechnology projects and holds patents in the area of genetic engineering. He has been an active member of the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, the American Society for Cell Biology and the Genetics Society of America. He continues to be committed to science education and the promotion of citizen science teaching.
