Basic biological concepts and processes with a human emphasis. From the unique delivery of biology content, to the time tested art program, to the complete integration of the text with technology, Dr. Sylvia Mader has formed a teaching system that will both motivate and enable your students to understand and appreciate the wonders of all areas of biology. Inquiry into Life, Relevancy Update 15.1/e emphasizes the application of all areas of biology to knowledge of human concerns, what the students are able to relate to. This distinctive text was developed to stand apart from all other non-majors texts with a unique approach, unparalleled art, and a straightforward, succinct writing style that has been acclaimed by both users and reviewers. In this updated 15.1 edition, the authors have focused on the concept of inquiry and a student’s inherent desire to learn.

Biology is ever-changing and this updated version reflects that. This relevancy update includes new Relevancy Modules in Connect. These modules demonstrate the connections between biological content and topics that are of an interest to society as a whole. Each module consists of an introductory video, an overview of basic scientific concepts, and then a closer look at the application of these concepts to the topic. Discussion and assessment questions, specific to the modules, are also available. These modules are available as a supplementary eBook to the existing text within Connect, and may be assigned by the instructor for use in a variety of ways in the classroom. Examples of topics covered include cancer biology, fermentation science, weed evolution, antibiotic resistance, mega crops, biology of weight gain, and climate change. Content in the text has also been updated to reflect current trends.
