Book Description

The field of genetics is constantly in the news, and it is a major part of national and state standards for science education - both for learning the scientific concepts and principles themselves, and for enhancing critical thinking and providing students with a bigger picture of how science and scientific inquiry change the world.Written by a widely-respected author and teacher, "Genetics: The Science of Life" is designed to supplement the information provided in science textbooks and provide a platform for student discussions and debate on the latest developments in this fast-growing field. Each highly illustrated book focuses on a particular aspect of genetics in language that will appeal to readers ages 12 and up. Full-color line-art illustrates complex scientific concepts, and a variety of thematic sidebars highlight particular elements of genetics studies with engaging, real-life examples.
