Clear, engaging, and visual, Starr and McMillan's HUMAN BIOLOGY teaches students the core concepts of human biology and prepares them to make well-informed decisions in their lives. Each chapter opens with an application that highlights the relevance of biology and motivates the study of the topic. Students then learn the basic concepts which help them think critically about these issues. Useful pedagogy such as section ending "Take-Home Messages" and a running glossary ensure students understand key concepts. At the end of the chapter, "Your Future" and "Explore on Your Own" sections demonstrate the impact and personal relevance of the content on their lives.
