Biology

STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics

Biology is the study of life. This vast field includes the study of evolution, DNA, animal behaviors, human reproduction, molecules, and the classification of life forms among many, many other topics. Here are a few resources to get you started in biology.


Painless Life Science
Painless Life Science

This book proves that life science can be both intriguing and enjoyable. The author helps students solve puzzles and find answers to questions as they learn to classify living things from bacteria and viruses to plants and animals. Other topics covered include cells, parts of the plant, animals in their environments, human body systems, genetics, ecology, natural selection, and general health issues.


Biology: The People Behind the Science
Biology: The People Behind the Science

From the discovery of penicillin to the theory of evolution to the demonstration of sex-linked inheritance, here are individuals who beat the odds and pioneered their way to a permanent place in the scientific community. Cullen discusses a variety of scientists, including Charles Darwin, Carl Linnaeus, Gregor Mendel, and James D. Watson.


On the Origin of the Species

For the 150th anniversary of the original publication comes this new edition containing more than 350 illustrations and photos.


Natural Selection (Science Foundations)
Natural Selection (Science Foundations)

In his groundbreaking book "Natural Selection," Charles Darwin explained his theory that evolution is driven by the adaptation of species to their environmental surroundings. From the tiniest microbe to the largest whale, all organisms have changed over vast expanses of time due to the forces of natural selection.

Inside the Body: Fantastic Images from Beneath the Skin
Inside the Body: Fantastic Images from Beneath the Skin

Using the most advanced computer imaging techniques, this text shows the inner workings of human anatomy, beginning with individual cells, the tiny building blocks of life. Remarkable images then reveal the surprising architecture of tissues, muscles, and complex organs that make up the body's living network of functional systems, such as the digestive system and the immune system.


Heredity (Science Foundations)
Heredity (Science Foundations)

Travel through the history of genetics, moving from the earliest ideas of heredity, a nineteenth-century monk's theories based on pea plants, to Watson and Crick's discovery of the structure of DNA and the future of genetic research.


The Manga Guide to Molecular Biology
The Manga Guide to Molecular Biology

While this complex topic can be confusing, knowledge of molecular biology is crucial to understanding medical science and many other important disciplines. After sleeping their way through Molecular Biology 101, Ami and Rin are forced to take make-up classes. With the help of Dr. Moro and his virtual reality machine, they travel inside cells, meeting cell organelles, nuclei, and genes and chromosomes face-to-face.
