Developed in partnership with the National Geographic Society, this attractive text for non-science-major undergraduates combines color photos, illustrations, and maps from National Geographic's image collection with an interactive multimedia package on the online learning environment WileyPLUS. The online learning environment offers 28 National Geographic videos and problem-solving questions (videos are also available as lecture slides), plus interactive process diagrams, animated tutorials on basic concepts, and review/drill podcasts of audio narration coupled with visuals. Content is organized by the body's interaction with the environment, from moving through the environment (the musculo-skeletal system, the nervous system, the senses) through protection from the environment (immunity, infection, epidemiology, cancer), and thriving in the environment (the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, and urinary systems). The final unit covers the endocrine and reproductive system, pregnancy and birth, genetics and molecular biology, and population evolution. Content is organized into manageable objectives, modules, and examples, with detailed chapter outlines alerting readers to pedagogical features such as labeled illustrations of complex processes, case studies, ethics and media boxes, and critical thinking and creative thinking questions. Appendices offer the periodic table, measurements, answers to self-tests, and a glossary. This third edition boasts a new layout, additional critical thinking questions, and data analysis questions for at least one figure per chapter. A teacher website contains lecture slides, tips on using the visuals, and a test bank. Ireland teaches at the University of Hawaii-Maui Community College.
