This brief and specialized book was designed for general, non-majors biology courses, and includes a brief history of vascular plant tissues, growth patterns, plant nutrition and transport, plant hormones, reproduction, and development. "Plant Structure and Function" covers Chapters 28-32 from "Biology: The Utnity and Diversity of Life." For the 11th edition of "Biology: Unity and Diversity of Life", Cecie Starr and Ralph Taggart made it their goal to "solve" some of the toughest Introductory Biology course challenges. We introduce a new issues-oriented approach with engages students in current, motivating biological topics; a built-in cross-referencing system for key topics; and, most importantly, time-saving media resources for instructors.
