We are honored to present the Twelfth Edition of Campbell Biology. For the last three decades, Campbell Biology has been the leading college text in the biological sciences. It has been translated into 19 languages and has provided millions of students with a solid foundation in college level biology. This success is a testament not only to Neil Campbell’s original vision but also to the dedication of hundreds of reviewers (listed on pages xxviii–xxxi), who, together with editors, artists, and contributors, have shaped and inspired this work. Our goals for the Twelfth Edition include: supporting students with new visual presentations of content and new study tools supporting instructors by providing new teaching modules with tools and materials for introducing, teaching, and assessing important and often challenging topics integrating text and media to engage, guide, and inform students in an active process of inquiry and learning Our starting point, as always, is our commitment to crafting text and visuals that are accurate, are current, and reflect our passion for teaching biology Here we provide an overview of the new features that we have developed for the Twelfth Edition; we invite you to explore pages iii–xiv for more information and examples. NEW! Chapter Openers Re-envisioned. Catalyzed by feedback from students and instructors, informed by data analytics, and building on the results of science education research, we have redesigned the opening of every chapter of the text. The result is more visual, more interactive, and more engaging. In place of an opening narrative, the first page of each chapter is organized around three new elements that provide students with the specific tools and approaches needed to achieve the learning objectives of that chapter: NEW! Visual Overview. Centered on a basic biological question related to the opening photo and legend, the Visual Overview illustrates a core idea of the chapter with straightforward art and text. Students get an immediate sense of what the chapter is about and what kinds of thinking will underlie its exploration. NEW! Study Tip.
Just as the Visual Overview introduces students to what they will learn, the study tip offers guidance in how to learn. It encourages students to learn actively through such proven strategies as drawing a flow chart, labeling a diagram, or making a table. Each tip provides an effective strategy for tackling important content in the chapter. Teachers of general biology face a daunting challenge: to help students acquire a conceptual framework for organizing an ever-expanding amount of information. The hallmark features of Campbell Biology provide such a framework, while promoting a deeper understanding of biology and the process of science. As such, they are well-aligned with the core competencies outlined by the Vision and Change national conferences. Furthermore, the core concepts defined by Vision and Change have close parallels in the unifying themes that are introduced in Chapter 1 and integrated throughout the book. Chief among the themes of both Vision and Change and Campbell Biology is evolution. Each chapter of this text includes at least one Evolution section that explicitly focuses on evolutionary aspects of the chapter material, and each chapter ends with an Evolution Connection Question and a Write About a Theme Question
