Genetics happens to be an interest of mine(and i have Sadava's understanding genetics from the great courses), therefore i knew about junk DNA.

P. Watt) with publishers, and acted as a strict taskmaster, often obliging his collaborators to sit down and work together and keeping them on a tight schedule. More than any other general biology text, Life focuses students on the experiments that led to the discoveries that have shaped modern biology. In its last pages, Wells emphasises the lack of "credibility" of personal immortality, and advocates "realization of [one's] participation in a greater being with which he identifies himself", whether this be "the Deity" or "Man". Data in Depth’ features enhance scientific literacy skills through data visualisations, experimental design, graphing and mathematical calculations.

One of the greatest scientific feats of our era is the astonishing progress made in understanding biology-the intricate machinery of life-a progress to which the period we are living in right now has contributed the most. New pedagogical features support the mission of Life by teaching students the skills and understanding of experimentation and data they need to succeed in introductory biology and ultimately in their future STEM careers. Professor Nowicki presents his subject in a conceptual format, emphasizing the importance of broad principles.

Thanks to the success of the book, Huxley was able to give up teaching and devote himself to administration and experimental science. A lot of the content in the first half would only really be followable with diagrams etc in front of you. Learning objectives guide students to the essential content as they read through each Key Concept section. A GREENER LIFEAnother first, the new edition of Life is printed on paper earning the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) label, the “gold standard” in green paper products. G. Wells, who had published The Outline of History a decade earlier, selling over two million copies, desired the same sort of treatment for biology.

Life has always presented how we know (the process of science through experiments) as well as what we know (facts derived from these experiments).

The book has numerous detailed, well-labeled diagrams that are helpful in understanding different processes. Leading by example and with a focus on critical thinking, the text exposes students to many thoughtful questions throughout, reinforcing the importance of asking questions in biology.
