About this product
- DescriptionThis volume of the main Life text is perfect for shorter courses which focus on the cell and heredity. Life offers balanced experimental coverage; the tenth edition has been updated with the latest scientific research, a new contemporary design and cutting-edge teaching and learning support to engage and encourage learning and revision.
- Author BiographyDavid Sadava, Claremont Colleges, USA David is the Pritzker Family Foundation Professor of Biology, Emeritus, at the Keck Science Center of Claremont McKenna, Pitzer, and Scripps, three of The Claremont Colleges. In addition, he is Adjunct Professor of Cancer Cell Biology at the City of Hope Medical Center. Twice winner of the Huntoon Award for superior teaching, Dr. Sadava taught courses on introductory biology, biotechnology, biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, plant biology, and cancer biology. For the past 15 years, he has investigated multi-drug resistance in human small-cell lung carcinoma cells with a view to understanding and overcoming this clinical challenge, and his current work focuses on new anti-cancer agents from plants and fungi. David Hillis, University of Texas, USA David is the Alfred W. Roark Centennial Professor in Integrative Biology and the Director of the Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics at the University of Texas at Austin, where he also has directed the School of Biological Sciences. He has taught courses in introductory biology, genetics, evolution, systematics, and biodiversity. His research interests span much of evolutionary biology, including experimental studies of evolving viruses, empirical studies of natural molecular evolution, applications of phylogenetics, analyses of biodiversity, and evolutionary modeling. He is particularly interested in teaching and research about the practical applications of evolutionary biology. H. Craig Heller, Stanford University, USA Craig is the Lorry I. Lokey/Business Wire Professor in Biological Sciences and Human Biology at Stanford University. He is a recipient of the Walter J. Gores Award for excellence in teaching. His research is on the neurobiology of sleep and circadian rhythms, mammalian hibernation, the regulation of body temperature, the physiology of human performance, and the neurobiology of learning. Dr. Heller has done research on a huge variety of animals and physiological problems ranging from sleeping kangaroo rats, diving seals, hibernating bears, photoperiodic hamsters, and exercising athletes. May Berenbaum, University of Illinois, USA May is the Swanlund Professor and Head of the Department of Entomology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She has taught courses in introductory animal biology, entomology, insect ecology, and chemical ecology and has received awards at the regional and national level for distinguished teaching from the Entomological Society of America. Her research addresses insect-plant co-evolution from molecular mechanisms of detoxification to impacts of herbivory on community structure. Concerned with the practical application of ecological and evolutionary principles, she has examined impacts of genetic engineering, global climate change, and invasive species on natural and agricultural ecosystems.
