Life was written with the nonbiology major in mind, but contains enough information to be suitable for a majors' course too. Diversity in Action While human examples and applications are emphasized. Life's diversity is treated early in a separate chapter, later in an appendix on taxonomy, and is logically integrated into all chapters. The animal biology chapters, for example, explore a deep-sea shrimp's vision, an insect's exoskeleton, a cow's digestion, and much more. TTie behavior and ecology chapters are filled with glimpses into the lives of a variety of organisms, from aardwolves to fire ants to naked mole rats. The reader ofLi/e will leam many new things, but also encounter familiar territory. The science of biology will not seem foreign— it will be fun and make sense.
