Campbell Biology in Focus – Lisa A. Urry – 1st Edition

Description

In 900 text pages, Campbell in Focus emphasizes the essential content and skills needed for success in the introductory for majors.

Each unit streamlines content to best fit the needs of instructors and students, based on surveys, curriculum initiatives, reviews, discussions with hundreds of professors, and careful analyses of syllabi. Every chapter includes a Skills Exercise that builds skills in graphing, interpreting data, experimental design, and math—skills majors need in order to succeed in their upper-level courses. This briefer upholds the Campbell hallmark standards of accuracy, clarity, and pedagogical innovation.
