A continuing evolution: This text is the leader in its field and is used by more than two million students. It covers all major topics in general biology with clarity and precision. The book distills main concepts and outlines the research trends in the field. The principles of evolution and energy flow are used as a conceptual framework throughout. Although each edition of Starr/Taggart has undergone a major revision, the Seventh Edition has been improved substantially more than any previous edition.
