About this book

The sixth edition of Botany: An Introduction to Plant Biology provides a modern and comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of botany while retaining the important focus of natural selection, analysis of botanical phenomena, and diversity. Students are first introduced to topics that should be most familiar (plant structure), proceed to those less familiar (plant physiology and development), and conclude with topics that are likely least familiar to the introductory student (genetics, evolution, and ecology).

The updated sixth edition includes the latest material on molecular biology, plant biotechnology, and the most recent coverage of taxonomy and phylogeny of plants, to keep students on the forefront of cutting-edge botanical research. New pedagogical features, including chapter opening learning objectives, Did You Know? boxes, and new and updated end-of-chapter critical thinking questions, guide students' focus and assesses comprehension. The approachable writing style, quality anatomy coverage, solid scientific grounding, and visual appeal of the new text design and art package make Botany: An Introduction to Plant Biology, Sixth Edition the clear choice for students digging into this exciting science.

- Features a new Chapter (chapter 2) providing foundational information on botany, including climate ecology, adaptation, genes and genetics, and phyologeny of plants
- Includes two new chapters covering up-to-date information on ethnobotany (chapter 24) and community ecology (chapter 26)
- Every chapter opens with Learning Objectives to help guide the reader’s focus as they progress through the chapter material
- Integrates more material on modern discoveries in genetics and molecular biology
- Includes additional coverage of seeds and seedlings, genome sciences, current transports (PIN), gene regulation, flowering, and more
- Contains more photographs to aid visual learners in understanding complex topics and biological processes
- Introduces a new box feature titled Did You Know? with interesting plant biology and biotechnology information to engage students in the subject and illuminate the direct application of plant biology to students’ everyday lives.
- Contains new and updated end-of-chapter critical thinking questions (not multiple choice)
- Includes a new end-of-chapter feature called At the Next Level to provide further research information for students who want to expand their study of botany
