Biology: Exploring the Diversity of Life covers all the core concepts professors need their students to master before going on to upper level courses in a concise and accessible fashion. It also gives the historical precedent for all that we know now, as well as providing information on current research and modern molecular tools that have allowed us to ask and answer questions we never thought possible 10 years ago. The final piece of the puzzle and also the most unique feature is that, through the "Unanswered Questions" box, the text gives students a perspective on what researchers are working on for the future and what the impact will be to the world when these discoveries are made. Biology: Exploring the Diversity of Life goes beyond what normal Biology textbooks have done. Not only has it been designed with the Canadian student in mind but it has been built with the help of Canadian students. With new features such as "Molecule Behind Biology", "People Behind Biology" and "Life on the Edge", Canadian students will enjoy learning Biology and instructors will enjoy teaching it.
