While the text covers the whole field of basic biology, it emphasizes the application of this knowledge to human concerns. Along with this approach, concepts and principles are stressed, rather than detailed, high-level scientific data and terminology. Each chapter presents the topic clearly, simply, and distinctly so that students can achieve a basic understanding of biology.
