|DIVERSITY OF LIFE covers Unit IV from BIOLOGY: THE UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE, 11th Edition. This brief and specialized book was designed for general non-major biology courses and presents the six kingdoms of life in an evolutionary framework. This book includes descriptions, illustrations, life cycles of representative viruses, bacteria, protistans, fungi, plants, invertebrates, and more. For the 11th edition of BIOLOGY: UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE, Cecie Starr and Ralph Taggart made it their goal to "solve" some of the toughest Introductory Biology course challenges. We introduce a new issues-oriented approach with engages students in current, motivating biological topics; a built-in cross-referencing system for key topics; and, most importantly, time-saving media resources for instructors.
