Associate Professor of Biology James Morris, together with several faculty members from Harvard, has recently written a new textbook, titled Biology: How Life Works, a book that seems likely to become a standard for teaching introductory biology to college students.
According to Morris,
“The last 20 years or so have seen remarkable and exciting changes in biology, education, and technology. With these in mind, we re-thought what an introductory biology textbook could be. Introductory biology is a student’s first exposure to college-level biology. We wrote a book that provides a solid base on which to build and treats biology not as a list of terms and facts to be memorized, but instead as a 21st century science that is compelling and relevant to students’ lives..”
