An established and successful textbook which provides a thorough and comprehensive basis for GCSE syllabuses. The social, environmental, and technological aspects of biology are discussed throughout the book and students are encouraged to explore topics in depth through investigational and experimental work. Simply worded text with clear explanations of important technical terms. Superb structural drawings and easy-to-copy diagrams which show students how to reduce complex information to a simple form. Questions at the end of each chapter designed to reinforce understanding.
