4th edition

‘...the author’s explanations are clear and his questioning approach stimulates the reader...’ - Kevin Edwardson, Science Co-ordinator, Sheffield College, UK

Co-published by Sinauer Associates, Inc. and W. H. Freeman and Company

Principles of Life cuts through the thicket of excessive detail and factual minutiae to focus on what matters most in the study of biology today. Students explore the field’s most essential biological ideas and information in the context of research data. The result is a textbook that is hundreds of pages shorter than the current major introductory books. Principles of Life makes an active-learning approach a reality for lecturers and students.

Julian Sutton, Torquay Boys’ Grammar School, UK

This textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to the core concepts of biology. Starting with an overview of the diversity of life, the author covers a range of subjects from the naming and grouping of organisms through natural selection, molecular and cell biology, genetics, reproduction, physiology, ecology and biotechnology. Written in a student-friendly style and with an emphasis on explaining concepts rather than cataloguing facts, the book is fully illustrated with copious diagrams and photographs. Exercises with answers are also included. Beginning students in biology or first-year undergraduates with biology as a subsidiary will find this book invaluable. Contents: PART 1: THE DIVERSITY OF ORGANISMS / PART 2: MOLECULES AND CELLS / PART 3: ENERGY / PART 4: GENES AND LIFE CYCLES / PART 5: THE WORKING ORGANISM / PART 6: ORGANISMS IN CONTEXT / PART 7: APPLIED TOPICS A Full Table of Contents is Available at:

Raymond Chang, Williams College, USA

Published by University Science Books

‘This is an excellent text for our undergraduate bioscience students who require advanced training in physical chemistry. It is primarily a physical chemistry textbook, and it does not scrimp on the key concepts of thermodynamics, kinetics, and molecular quantum mechanics. At the same time, the presentation style is clear and understandable, and the text is sprinkled with just enough biochemistry to maintain our students’ interest.’ Alan Van Orden, Colorado State University, USA This book is ideal for use in one-semester introductory courses within life sciences. The emphasis is on helping students to a solid understanding of physical concepts, rather than focusing on precise mathematical development or experimental ideas. Assuming only basic skills of differential and integral calculus, and providing end-of-chapter problems with both physiochemical and biological applications, it is an accessible and useful guide to the subject. Contents: Introduction / Properties of Gases / The First Law of Thermodynamics / The Second Law of Thermodynamics / Solutions / Chemical Equilibrium / Electrochemistry / Acids and Bases / Chemical Kinetics / Enzyme Kinetics / Quantum Mechanics and Atomic Structure / The Chemical Bond / Intermolecular Forces / Spectroscopy / Photochemistry and Photobiology / Macromolecules / Appendices / Glossary / Answers to Even-Numbered Computational Problems / Index

‘I love this book. It provides an important alternative approach to reductionist models that use body systems or regions to present information. I would certainly encourage my students to buy it as it lacks the overwhelming density of most anatomy and physiology texts… it makes complex concepts more accessible.’ Melanie Birks, Associate Professor and Deputy Dean of the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Central Queensland University, Australia ‘It does provide an excellent foundation. The book is clear and wide ranging and should prove a valuable addition to the student’s bookshelf... insist they carry it with them at all times!’ - Jim Clough, Senior Lecturer in Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences, University of Gloucestershire, UK The many elements of anatomy, physiology and biology are hard to grasp, but this book makes it easier by putting all the systems in the context of daily activities, which we all do without thinking about. The major organs and systems are introduced in an approachable manner, and are explained so that they can be applied to practice.

It provides, for the first time in a single accessible volume, an integrated approach to both causes and mechanisms underlying obesity and offers principled steps toward prevention and fitness. Expert chapters are written by leaders in their respective fields. Multiple factors have contributed to the obesity epidemic. Social, sensory, cultural, medical, perceptual, conditioning and developmental influences have combined to disrupt well-established feeding controls. All are discussed individually and collectively from the perspective of causation and potential mitigation, on individual and at group levels.

Principles of Animal Communication 2nd edition Jack W. Bradbury and Sandra L. Vehrencamp, both Emeritus, Cornell University, USA

Published by Sinauer Associates, Inc.

Animal communication continues to be one of the most active and popular topics in behavioural ecology, neurobiology, and evolutionary biology. As the title of this book suggests, the emphasis here is on identifying general principles that apply broadly across taxa and modalities. At the same time, major effort has been expended to integrate these principles with the accepted principles of economics and other fields of science. Given this integrative nature, animal communication is a topic that can serve both as an appealing entry point to science and as a coalescing of separate disciplines.While retaining the basic order of topics of the previous edition, this second edition is a completely new book, with over 90% of the citations published since the first edition. Figures and photos are now full colour and the book has a larger format that makes for easier reading. Contents: Preface / Signals and Communication / Sound and Sound Signal Production / Sound Signal Propagation and Reception / Light and Visual Signal Production / Visual Signal Propagation and Reception / Chemical Signals / Short Range Modalities / Signals and Information / Economics of Communication / Signal Evolution / Conflict Resolution / Mate Attraction and Courtship / Social Integration / Environmental Signals / Communication Networks / The Broader View: Microbial, Plant, and Human Communication

‘...fascinating, wellwritten, consistently thought-provoking, and deserves a wide readership.’ - The Guardian ‘Jonathan Balcombe has brought together... evidence that animals have far more in common with us humans than we might like to suppose. As well as cunning and intelligence, they can also show kindness and sensitivity.’ - The Evening Standard ‘...captivating and disquieting...’ - Human Givens ‘...J.M. Coetzee...praises Balcombe as “a scientist who has escaped the narrow orthodoxies of institutional science”. This is true.’ - The Times Literary Supplement Jonathan Balcombe’s follow-up to his successful first book, Pleasurable Kingdom, is an eloquent and scientifically informed account, which shatters the myth that animals eat and reproduce mindlessly and shows how we humans have to learn to treat them as sentient beings capable of feelings, pain and emotions.

Fuller bridges the concerns of science studies and science policy, exploring the historical and philosophical currents underlying the creation of a new biotechnological species.’ - Robert Frodeman, Director, Center for the Study of Interdisciplinarity, University of North Texas, USA Social thinkers in all fields are faced with one unavoidable question: What does it mean to be human in the twenty-first century? This ambitious and groundbreaking book provides the first synthesis of historical, philosophical and sociological insights needed to address this question in a thoughtful and creative manner.
