Introduction to Biology Series


Countless biological processes enable the existence of all organisms and facilitate their interactions with the living and nonliving world around them. The microscopic structures and intricate mechanisms that make up these processes, from those that regulate the heartbeat of a child to those that govern photosynthesis in a plant, illuminate much about the past and future of all life. By examining the biological basis of various life forms and their characteristic behavioral patterns, these comprehensive volumes illuminate the magnificent organization of the natural world.
