This text presents modern molecular biology and evolutionary concepts alongside biological issues ranging from genetics, comparison of prokaryotes and eukaryotes, and understanding the interactions between organisms and their environments.
The material in the text is up-to-the-minute: material on international ecological and conservation issues draws on the latest research and the immune system of vertebrates is presented in an accessible form. In addition, the book's global context is woven in with examples, applications and ground-breaking research and biotechnology.
