Book Preface

We are honored to present Biology: A Global  Approach, which has been adapted from Campbell  Biology, Twelfth Edition, for a global audience.  For the last three decades, Biology has been the  leading college text in the biological sciences.
It has been translated into 19 languages and  has provided millions of students with a solid  foundation in college-level biology. This success  is a testament not only to Neil Campbell’s original vision but also to the dedication of hundreds of reviewers (listed on pages 29–33), who, together with editors, artists, and contributors, have shaped and inspired this work.

Our goals for the Twelfth Edition include:

supporting students with new visual presentations of ■ NEW! Updated Content. As in each new edition of content and new study tools

■ supporting instructors by providing new teaching modules with tools and materials for introducing, teaching, and assessing important and often challenging topics
■ integrating text and media to engage, guide, and inform students in an active process of inquiry and learning
Our starting point, as always, is our commitment to craft-ing text and visuals that are accurate, are current, and reflect our passion for teaching biology.

New to This Edition
Here we provide an overview of the new features that we have developed for the Twelfth Edition; we invite you to explore pages 5–15 for more information and examples.

NEW! Chapter Openers Re-envisioned. Catalyzed by feedback from students and instructors, informed by data analytics, and building on the results of science education research, we have redesigned the opening of every chapter of the text. The result is more visual, more interactive, and more engaging. In place of an opening narrative, the first page of each chapter is organized around three new elements that provide students with the specific tools and approaches needed to achieve the learning objectives of that chapter:

■ NEW! Visual Overview. Centered on a basic biological question related to the opening photo and legend, the Visual Overview illustrates a core idea of the chapter with straightforward art and text. Students get an immediate sense of what the chapter is about and what kinds of thinking will underlie its exploration.
■ NEW! Study Tip. Just as the Visual Overview introduces students to what they will learn, the study tip offers guidance in how to learn. It encourages students to learn actively through such proven strategies as drawing a flow chart, labeling a diagram, or making a table. Each tip provides an effective strategy for tackling important content in the chapter.

■ NEW! Highlights of Digital Resources. In conversations with users of the textbook, we often encounter a limited awareness of the digital tools the text provides to facilitate instruction and learning. We therefore created Go to Mastering Biology, a chapter opener section where we highlight some of the tutorials, animations, and other interactives available for students to explore on their own or for instructors to assign. These resources include Get Ready for This Chapter questions, Figure Walkthroughs, HHMI BioInteractive videos, Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules, and more.

■ NEW! Updated Content. As in each new edition of Biology, the Twelfth Edition incorporates new content, summarized on pages 19–21. Content updates reflect rapid, ongoing changes in knowledge about climate change, genomics, gene-editing technology (CRISPR), evolutionary biology, microbiome-based therapies, and more. In addition, Unit 7 includes a new section on
“Biological Sex, Gender Identity, and Sexual Orientation in Human Sexuality,” which provides instructors and students with a thoughtful, clear, and current introduction to topics of tremendous relevance to biology, to student lives, and to current public discourse and events.

5 NEW! Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules. The Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules provide instructors with active learning exercises and questions to use in class, plus Mastering Biology assignments that can be assigned before and after class. A total of 15 modules are now available in the Instructor Resources area of Mastering Biology.

Pearson eText
Students using the Pearson eText will reap all the benefits of the new text features, while also benefiting from the follow-ing new and existing interactive resources:

■ NEW! An expanded collection of the popular Figure Walkthroughs guide students through key figures with narrated explanations and figure mark-ups that reinforce important points.
■ NEW! Links to the AAAS Science in the Classroom website provide research papers from Science with annotations to help students understand the papers. These links are included at the end of each appropriate chapter.
■ EXPANDED! 500 animations and videos bring biology to life. These include new resources from HHMI BioInteractive that engage students in topics from CRISPR to coral reefs.
