As the amount of information in biology expands dramatically, it becomes increasingly important for textbooks to distill this vast amount of scientific knowledge into concise principles and enduring concepts.

The Sixth Edition has been extensively revised and updated with the latest research in cell biology and it provides an exceptional framework for teaching and learning.
