About The Author

Cecie Starr

Cecie Starr

Dr. Cecie Starr has been known as one of the best-selling biology textbook authors for the past 2 decades. Her textbooks, appreciated for their clarity in both the written word and the visual representation of biological concepts, include multiple editions of BIOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS, BIOLOGY TODAY AND TOMORROW and BIOLOGY: THE UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE.

Cecie's original dream was to become an architect. Instead of building houses, she now builds, with care and attention to detail, incredible textbooks based on this philosophy: "I invite science students into a chapter through an intriguing story. Once inside, they get the great windows that biologists construct on the world of life. Biology is not just another house. It is a conceptual mansion. I hope to do it justice."

Christine Evers

Christine Evers

Dr Christine Evers is an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Research Fellow at Imperial College, London (UK). She received her PhD from the University of Edinburgh, UK, in 2010, after having completed her MSc degree in Signal Processing and Communications at the University of Edinburgh in 2006, and BSc degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Jacobs University Bremen, Germany in 2005.

After a position as a research associate at the University of Edinburgh between 2009 and 2010, Christine worked until 2014 as a senior systems engineer on RADAR tracking systems at Selex ES, Edinburgh, UK. She returned to academia in 2014 as a research associate in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College, focusing on acoustic scene mapping for robot audition.

As of 2017, she is awarded a fellowship by the UK's EPSRC to advance her research on acoustic signal processing and scene mapping for socially assistive robots. Her research focuses on Bayesian inference for audio and speech applications in dynamic environments, including acoustic simultaneous localization and mapping, sound source localization and tracking, blind speech dereverberation, and sensor fusion.

Should employers be allowed to require drug testing? Should there be warning labels on fast foods? This introductory textbook teaches you basic concepts of biology in context of critical issues. The Biology: Concepts And Applications 10th edition (PDF) was developed in partnership by authors Cecie Starr, Christine A. Evers, and Lisa Starr with the National Geographic Society, known for its eye-opening photography and legacy of inspiring people. The result is a textbook that combines unparalleled visuals with clear explanations to introduce the process of science and core concepts of biology. “Engage” boxes help students see chapter concepts being put to work in the real world; “Figure It Out” questions help you check understanding; “Applications” bring chapter content to real life; “Learning Objectives” help focus your studying; and “Data Analysis” activities strengthen your analytical skills. This ebook is widely praised for engaging and clear writing, exceptional art, and terrific support from media that all work together to help you “get” biology.

Every chapter explores core concepts aligned with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) initiative “Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education” to help college students master associated learning objectives. By continuously challenging biology students to question what they read and to apply the concepts they learn, the textbook allows our citizens and future policy-makers to hone critical thinking skills as they gain scientific literacy.
