Biology (International Edition)
This package contains Campbell's Biology 9th Edition, access to Mastering Biology, and access to all 5 Mastering Biology Virtual lab rooms. Campbell's Biology 9th Edition is a Pearson Global Edition.
The Pearson Editorial team worked closely with educators around the world to include content especially relevant to students outside of the United States. Helping Students Make Connections Across Biology Campbell BIOLOGY Global Edition is the unsurpassed leader in introductory biology.
The text's hallmark values accuracy, currency, and passion for teaching and learning have made it the most successful introductory biology book for eight consecutive editions.
The book comes with an access code to MasteringBiology(r) and MasteringBiology(r) Virtual Labs. The MasteringBiology(r) Virtual Labs online environment promotes critical thinking skills using virtual experiments and explorations that may be difficult to perform in a wet lab environment due to time, cost, or safety concerns.

Neil Campbell combined the investigative nature of a research scientist with the soul of an experienced and caring teacher. He earned his M.A. in Zoology from UCLA and his Ph.D. in Plant Biology from the University of California, Riverside, where he received the Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2001. Neil published numerous research articles on desert and coastal plants and how the sensitive plant (Mimosa) and other legumes move their leaves. His 30 years of teaching in diverse environments included general biology courses at Cornell University, Pomona College, and San Bernadino Valley College, where he received the college's first Outstanding Professor Award in 1986. Neil was a visiting scholar in the Department of Botany and Plant Sciences at the University of California, Riverside. In addition to his authorship of this book, he coauthored Biology: Concepts & Connections and Essential Biologywith Jane Reece. Neil died shortly after the initial planning of the 8th edition.
Lead author Jane Reece, Neil Campbell's longtime collaborator, has participated on every edition of BIOLOGY-first as an editor and contributor, then as an author. Her education includes an A.B. in Biology from Harvard University, an M.S. in Microbiology from Rutgers University, and a Ph.D. in Bacteriology from UC Berkeley. Before migrating to California from the Northeast, she taught biology at Middlesex County College and Queensborough Community College. At UC Berkeley, and later as a postdoctoral fellow in genetics at Stanford University, her research focused on genetic recombination in bacteria. Besides her work on BIOLOGY,she has been a coauthor on Biology: Concepts & Connections, Essential Biology, andThe World of the Cell.
