Botany: An Introduction to Plant Biology continues to set the standard for learning the fundamentals of plant science. In its seventh edition, Botany leads with the latest material on molecular biology, plant biotechnology, and the most recent coverage of taxonomy and phylogeny of plants to keep students at the forefront of cutting-edge botanical research.
Author Jim Mauseth carefully weaves the themes of ecology, evolution, and the impact of humans on other species and the environment into every chapter with the intention of teaching students about life in general. While the main details concern plant life, intertwined are lessons about general principles of biology, using human biology as relatable examples (e.g. Calcium: Strong bones, strong teeth but not strong plants). New Thinking about Thinking boxes teach students how to think critically and logically, so that after the course is over, students can continue to learn on their own.
Each new print copy includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access that unlocks a comprehensive and interactive eBook, student practice activities and assessments, a full suite of instructor resources, and learning analytics reporting tools
