Biology is the natural science that studies life on our planet: from fungi to fossils and ecosystems to extremophiles, there is a whole world waiting to be discovered. Mind Maps: Biology helps you to understand the natural world and to learn its language by exploring ten mind maps, which are powerful tools for visual learning and understanding. Complex ideas are explained using text and illustrations that are easy to follow. Featuring specially commissioned, hand-drawn maps, diagrams and doodles, together with an expert analysis of concepts, this book provides a wealth of visual information across a range of complex subjects.
