Mader Human Biology was developed to fill this void. Organized around the main themes of biology, Human Biology guides students to think conceptually about biology and the world around them. Just as the levels of biological organization flow from one level to the next, themes and topics of Biology are tied to one another throughout the chapter, and between the chapters and parts through the concept of homeostasis. Combined with Dr. Maders hallmark writing style, exceptional art program, and pedagogical framework, difficult concepts become easier to understand and visualize, allowing students to focus on understanding how the concepts are related. Multimedia Integration: Michael Windelspecht represents the new generation of digital authors. Through the integration of multimedia resources, such as videos, animations and MP3 files, and in the design of a new series of interactive animations, Dr Windelspecht has worked to bring Dr. Maders texts to the new generation of digital learners. A veteran of the online, hybrid, and traditional teaching environments, Dr. Windelspecht is well versed in the challenges facing todays students and educators. Dr. Windelspecht has also acted as the subject matter expert on all aspects of the Connect content being prepared for the Mader series of textbooks. The laboratory exercise in this manual are coordinated with Human Biology, a general biology text that covers the entire field of biology. The text emphasizes how we can apply biological knowledge to our own lives and to our relationships with other organisms.
