Tailored in length and complexity specifically for an introductory sophomore or junior course. With the molecular biology of cells as the unifying theme, explores such topics as cell structure and function, developmental biology, the nervous and immune systems, and plant biology. Each chapter includes a section on experimentation and medical applications to alert students that there is more to the subject than the classroom. Illustrated in color throughout. An accompanying CD-ROM contains mini-courses on selected topics from the text with animation to demonstrate the dynamics of cell behavior. Co-published with ASM Press.
