Nelson Thornes, 2000 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 800 pages
The major new course text has been written by experienced authors to provide coverage of the Advanced Subsidiary (AS) and Advanced GCE Biology and Human Biology specifications in a single book. Advanced Biology provides clear, well-illustrated information, which will help develop a full understanding of biological structure and function and of relevant applications. The topics have been carefully organised into parts, which give a logical sequence to the book. This new text has been developed to replace the best-selling titles Biology: Principles and Processes and Biology, A Functional Approach. Features include: full-colour design with clear diagrams and photographs; up-to-date information on biotechnology, health, applied genetics and ecology; clearly written text using the latest Institute of Biology terminology; a useful summary and a bank of practice questions at the end of every chapter; support boxes help bridge the gap from GCSE or equivalent courses; extension boxes providing additional depth of content - some by guest authors who are experts in their field; and a comprehensive index so you can quickly locate information with ease. There is also a website providing additional support that you can access directly at www.advancedbiolgy.co.uk.
