As active scientists working in a wide variety of both basic and applied biology, we are fortunate to be part o f a field that i s not only fasci nating but also changes rapidly. It is apparent not just in the time span since we started our careers-we see i t every day when we open a newspaper or a scientific journal. As educators of both introductOLY and advanced-level students, we desire to convey our excitement about biology's dynamic nature. This new edition of Life looks, and is, qui te differen t from i ts predecessors. In planning the Eight h Edition, we focused on three fundamental goals. The first was to m a i n tain and enhance what has worked well in the past-an emphasis o n not just wha t we know but how we came to know it; the incorporation of exciting new discoveries; an a rt progran1 distinguished by i ts beauty and clari ty; plus a unifying theme. As should be the case i n any biology textbook, that theme is evolution by n a tural selection, a 150- year-old idea that more than ever ties together the livi n g world. We have been greatly helped i n this endeavor by the addition of a new author, David Hillis. His knowledge and insights have been invaluable in developing our chapters on evolution, p hylogeny, and diversity, and they permeate the rest of the book as well. Our second goal h a s been to make Life more pedagogicaUy accessible. From the bold new design to the inclusion of numerous learning aids throughout each chapter (see New Pedagogical Features), we have worked to make our writi ng consistently easy to follow as well as engaging. Third, between editions we asked seven distin guished ecologists- aU of whom teach in troductOLY biology-to provide detailed critiques of the Ecology unit. As a result of their extensive suggestions, Part Nine, Ecology, has a fresh organization (see The Nine Parts). And one of the seven, May Berenbaum, has agreed to join the Life author team for the Ninth Edition. The other six stalwarts are thanked in the "Reviewers o f the Eighth Edi tion" section. Enduring Features As stated above, we are commjtted to a blendin g of a presentation of the core ideas o f biology with a n emphasis on i ntroducing our readers to the process of scientific inquily. Having p ioneered the idea of depicting semi n a l experiments in specially designed figures, we continue to develop this here, with 96 EXPERIMENT figures (28 percent more than in the Seventh Edition). Each follows the structure: Hypothesis, Method, Result, and Conclusion. Many now include " Further Research," which asks students to conceive a n experimen t tha t explores a related question. A rela ted feature is the RESEARCH METHOD figures, depicting many labora tOlY and field methods used to do this research. All the Experimen t and Research Method figures are listed i n the endpapers at the back of the book. Another much-praised feature-which we pioneered ten years ago in Life'S Fifth Edition-is the BALLOON CAPTIONS used in our figures. We know that many students are visual learners. The ba lloon captions brin g explana tions of i ntrica te, complex processes directly into the i llustration, allowing the reader to i n tegrate the information without repeatedly going back and forth between the figure and its legend. Life is the only introductory biology book for science majors that begins each chapter with a story. These OPENING STORIES, most of which are new to this edition, are meant to intrigue students while helping them see how the chapter's biological subject relates to the world around them. New Pedagogical Features There are several new elements in the Eighth Edition chapters. Each has been deSigned as a study tool to ajd the student in mastering the material. In the opening page spread, IN THIS CHAPTER previews the chapter's content, and the CHAPTER OUTLINE gives the major section headings, all numbered and all framed as questions to emphasize the inquilY basis of science. Each m a i n section o f a c h ap ter now ends with a RECAP. This key element briefly summarizes the important concepts in the section, then provides two or three questions to stimulate immediate review. Each question includes reference to pertinent text or a figure or both. The CHAPTER SUMMARY boldfaces key terms i ntroduced and defined in the chapter. We have kept the highlighted references to key figures and to the Web tutorials and activities that support a topic in the chapter. Another new element, BIOBITs, is not strictly a learning ajd, but offers in triguing (occasionally amusing) supplemental information. BioBits, like the opening stories, are intended to help students apprecia te the i nterface between biology and other aspects of Life. Redesigned WEB ICONS a lert the reader to the tutoria ls and activities on Life'S companion website (wwvv.thelifewire.com). Each of these study and review resources, many of which are new for the Eighth Edition, has b e e n crea ted specifically for Life. A full List, by chapter, is found in the front endpapers of the book. The Nine Parts We have reorganized the book into nine parts. Part One sets the stage for the e n tire book, with the opening chapter on biology as an exciting science, startin g with a student project, and how evolution unites the living world. This is followed by chapters on the basic chemical building blocks tha t underlie life. We have tried to tie this material together by relating it to theories on the origin of viii PREFACE life, with new discoveries of water in our solar system as an impetus. In Part Two, CeJJs and Energy, we present an integrated view of the structure and biochemical functions of cells. The ctiscussions of biochemistly are often challenging for students; thus we have reworked both the text and illustrations for greater clarity. These discussions are presented in the context of the latest discoveries on the origin of life and evolution of cells. Part Three, Heredity and the Genome, begins wi th continuity at the cellular level, and then outlines the principles of genetics and the identification of DNA as the genetic material. New examples, such as the genetics of coat color in dogs, enJjven these chapters. This is followed by chapters on gene expression and on the prokmyotic and eukatyotic genomes. Many new discoveries have been made in this new field of genomics, ranging from tracking down the bird flu virus to the genomes of wild cats, such as the cheetah. Part Four, Molecular Biology: The Genome in Action, reinforces the basic principles of classical and molecular genetics by applying them to such diverse topics as cell signaling, biotechnology, and medicine. We use many new experiments and examples from applied biology to illustrate these concepts. These include the latest information on the human genome and the emerging field of systems biology. The chapter on natural defenses now includes a discussion of allergy. Part Five, The Patterns and Processes of Evolution, has been updated in several important ways. We have emphasized the importance of evolutionary biology as a basis for comparing and understanding all aspects of biology, and have described numerous practical appJjcations of evolutionary biology that will be famiJjar and relevant to the evelyday Jjves of most students. Recent experimental studies of evolution are described and explai. ned, to help students understand that evolution is an ongoing, observable process. The chapters on phylogenetics and molecular evolution have been completely rewritten to reflect recent advances in those fields. Other changes reflect our growing knowledge of the histOlY of li.fe on Earth and the mechanisms of evolution that have given rise to all of biodiversity. Part Six, The Evolution of Diversity, reflects the latest views on phylogeny. It continues to emphasize groups LUlited by evolutionmy history over classically defined taxa. Thjs emphasis is now supported by an appendix on the Tree of Life that clearly maps out and describes all groups discussed in the text, so that students can quickly look up unfamiliar names and see how they fit into the larger context of life. We now discuss aspects of phylogeny that are still under study or debate (among major groups of eukaryotes, plants, and animals, for instance). In Part Seven, Flowering P lants: Form and Function, we report on several exciting new discoveries. These include the receptors for auxin, gibberellins, and bras sino steroids as well as great progress on the f10rigen problem. We have updated our treatment of signal trmlsduction pathways and of circadiml rhythms in plmlts. The already strong treatment of envirOlU1lental challenges to plants has been augmented by new Experiment figures on plant defenses against herbivores, one confinrung that l􀈌coti.ne does help tobacco plants resist certain insects. Part Eight, Animals: Form and Function, is about how animals work. Although we give major attention to human physiology, we embed it in a background of comparative animal physiology. Our focus is systems physiology but we also introduce the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms. For example, our explanations of nervous system phenomena-whether they be action potentials, sensation, learning, or sleep-are discussed in terms of the properties of ion channels. The actions of hormones are explained in terms of the molecular mechanisms. Maximum athletic performance is explained in terms of the underlying cellular energy systems. Throughout Part Eight we try to help the student make the connections across all levels of biology, from molecular to behavioral, and to see the relevance of physiology to issues of health and ctisease. Of central importance in each chapter is mechmlisms of control and regulation. Part Nine, Ecology, begins with a new chapter that describes the scope of ecological research and discusses recen t advances in our understanding of the broad patterns in the ctistribution of life on Earth. The next chapter, also new, combines Behavior and Behavioral Ecology. It shows how the decisions that orgaI􀄘sms make during their lives influence both their survival and reproductive success, and also the dynamics of populations and the structure of ecological communities. The chapter on Population Ecology has new material that explains how ecologists are able to mark and follow individual organisms in the wild to determine their survival and reproductive success. Following a chapter on Community Ecology, another new chapter, Ecosystems and Global Ecology, shows how ecologists are expanding the scope of their studies to encompass the functioning of the global ecosystem. TI􀄘s discussion leads naturally to the final chapter in the book, Conservation Biology, which describes how ecologists and conservation biologists work to reduce the rate at which species are becoming extinct as a result of human activities. Full Books, Paperbacks, or Loose-Leaf We again provide Life both as the full book and as a cluster of paperbacks. Thus, instructors who want to use less than the whole book, or who want their students to have more portable Ul􀈍tS, CaI. choose from these split volumes: Volume 1, The Cell and Heredity, includes: Part One, The Science and Building Blocks of Life (Chapters 1-3); Part Two, Cells and Energy (Chapters 4-8); PartThree, Heredity and the Genome (Chapters 9-14); and Part Four, Molecular Biology: The Genome in Action (Chapters 15-20). Volume II, Evolution, Diversity, and Ecology, includes: Chapter 1, Studying Life; Part Five, The Patterns and P rocesses of Evolution (Chapters 21-25); Part Six, The Evolution of Diversity (Chapters 26-33); and Part Nine, Ecology (Chapters 52-57). Volume III, P lants and Animals, includes: Chapter 1, Studying Life; Part Seven, Flowering P lants: Form and Function (Chapters 34-39); and Part Eight, Animals: Form and Function (Chapters 40-51). Note that each volume also includes the book's front matter, Appendixes, Glossary, and Index. Life is also available in a loose-leaf version. T his shrink-wrapped, unbound, 3-hole punched version is designed to fit into a 3-ring binder. Students take only what they need to class and can easily integrate any instructor handouts or other resources. Media and Supplements for the Eighth Edition The media and supplements for Life, Eighth Edition have been assembled with two main goals in mind: (1) to provide students with a collection of tools that helps them effectively master the vast amOlmt of new information that is being presented to them in the introductory biology course; and (2) to provide instructors with the richest possible collection of resources to aid in teaching the course-preparing, presenting the lecture, providing course materials online, and assessing student comprehension. All of the Life media and supplemental resources have been developed specifically for this textbook. T his gives the student the greatest degree of consistency when studying across different media. For example, the animated tutorials and activities found on the Companion Website were built using textbook art, so that the manner in which structures are illustrated, the colors used to identify objects, and the terms and abbreviations used are all consistent. The rich collection of visual resources in the Instructor's Media Library provides instructors with a wide range of options for enhancing lectures, course websites, and assignments. Highlights include: layered art PowerPoint® presentations that break down complex figures into detailed, step-by-step presentations; a collection of approximately 200 video segments that can help capture the attention and imagination of students; and the new set of PowerPoint ® slides of textbook art with editable labels and leaders that allow easy customization of the figures.
