Each chapter presents a Case Study that describes a true and relevant event or phenomenon and ties the related biological concepts to the real world. First, the chapter introduces the topic with a Case Study. Then, the Case Study Continued sections expand on the case study and connect the topic to related biology concepts. Finally, the Case Study Revisited sections wrap up the narrative by explaining how the story is related to the biology topics in the chapter.
Accompanying questions encourage students to further reflect on the Case Study take-home lessons. Many Case Studies have been heavily revised, and the 12th Edition features a new Case Study in Chapter 4 on bioengineering human organs. Teach your course your way: Your course is unique.

After marrying in , they moved to California, where Terry earned her doctorate in marine ecology at the University of Southern California and Gerry earned his doctorate in neurobiology at the California Institute of Technology.
They are now emeritus professors of biology at the University of Colorado Denver, where they taught introductory biology and neurobiology from through In their research, funded primarily by the National Institutes of Health, they investigated the mechanisms by which neurons are harmed by low levels of environmental pollutants and protected by estrogen.
Terry and Gerry are long-time members of many conservation organizations and share a deep appreciation of nature and of the outdoors. They enjoy hiking in the Rockies, walking and horseback riding near their home outside Steamboat Springs, and singing in the community chorus. Keeping up with the amazing and endless stream of new discoveries in biology provides them with a continuing source of fascination and stimulation. They are delighted that their daughter Heather has become a teacher and is inspiring a new generation of students with her love of chemistry.
BYERS is a Midwesterner transplanted to the hills of western Massachusetts, where he is a professor in the biology department at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He has been a member of the faculty at UMass where he also completed his doctoral degree since Bruce teaches courses in evolution, ornithology, and animal behavior, and does research on the function and evolution of bird vocalizations.
