Abstract:

[This is a] text for students who are planning careers in the life or health sciences, at various levels of preparation. Early background chapters on the scientific method, basic chemistry, physics, and molecular and cell biology are useful for students with no college-level science. Underlying principles of anatomy are explained throughout, though emphasis is on function rather than structure. Chapters progress from the molecular-cellular level through biological control systems to integrated organ function.-Booknews. [The] text should be very useful to students of diverse backgrounds and levels of preparation ... The background information on basic chemistry, physics, and molecular/cell biology in the first six chapters will help those students who have studied little or no college-level science. Students who have stronger backgrounds in the sciences will find the basic science coverage a useful review.-Pref.
