Biology Today uses current issues as the context for teaching all major biological concepts from multiple levels of biological organization. In addition to its real-life appeal, this engaging approach allows for a more comprehensive view of biology as a process of discovery and helps examine the intimate connections between biological and social issues. In contrast to the segmented approach in most texts, the issues approach of Biology Today allows a vertical integration of levels of biological organization (molecular to ecological) organized around one topic at a time. Biology Today stimulates critical thinking and questioning rather than memorization, and encourages students, biologists and non-biologists alike, to consider their place in the world, evaluate scientific arguments and make informed decisions affecting their own lives and the well-being of society.
