The third edition of this text on biology has been fully revised and updated to provide the information required for late-1990's syllabuses. The book provides an interactive element where the readers can focus on the learning objectives, find them easily in each chapter, check their knowledge and understanding by answering the wide-ranging questions and revise their work using the end of chapter summaries. The book can be a primer for students beginning A Level biology after studying an integrated course at GCSE. It should also appeal to further education students.
