Starr and McMillan's HUMAN BIOLOGY, 8th Edition presents the core areas of human biology with an emphasis on not only the internal world, but how we impact our external world. Highlighting biology's relevance, each chapter opens with an "Impacts, Issues" reading on a human biology-related issue currently in the news. Within the chapter, users then learn the basic concepts which help them think critically about these issues. In addition, each chapter's "How Would You Vote?" question invites users to explore current issues and deepen their understanding through online exercises. By the end of the chapter, learners are asked to "Explore on Your Own," and participate in activities showing the impact of the content on their lives. Benefits: NEW! "Connections" feature: Each human systems chapter has a full-page homeostasis element showing integration of body systems and highlighting the role of the system being considered.

Infectious diseases coverage is integrated throughout rather than in a separate chapter. The topic is introduced in Chapter 1 as a global health issue. Subsequent chapters, especially the systems chapters, have greatly expanded coverage of diseases and disorders, including a new section on infectious disease concerns related to the chapter's main topic. NEW! Ecology topics are in two chapters -- one on basic principles, and a second chapter that focuses on environmental issues related to human activity, including loss of biodiversity, global warming, and the geographic spread of infectious disease organisms.
