Life: The Science of Biology, 9th Edition

Life's ninth edition brings a fresh approach to the study of biology while retaining the features that have made the book successful in the past. A new coauthor, the distinguished entomologist May R. Berenbaum has joined the team and the role of evolutionary biologist David Hillis is greatly expanded in this edition.

A fresh new design is more open and more accessible to students. The extensively revised art program has a contemporary style and color palette. The information flow of the figures is easier to follow, with numbered balloons as a guide for students. There are new conceptual figures, including a striking visiual timeline for the evolution of life on Earth (see below) and single overview figure that summarizes the information in the genome.
