    Don’t just take our word for it.

    We conducted extensive market reviews prior to publishing a sixth edition of the best-selling Botany: An Introduction to Plant Biology. Here’s what some of our reviewers had to say:

    "The Botany and Beyond and the Plants and People sections are excellent! I especially appreciate the diversity of topics, and the direct application, and the clarity of writing."

    "I would definitely anticipate using a sixth edition of this text. I felt the text had most of what I wanted in a textbook."

    "The section on plant structure I find to be the single strongest area of the book and the area I feel sets it apart from the competitors."

    Hear What Your Peers Have to Say About Understanding Viruses

    Posted by Lindsay White on Mar 8, 2017 12:36:58 PM

    Don't just take our word for it.

    We conducted extensive market reviews prior to publishing a third edition of the internationally acclaimed Understanding Viruses. Here's what some of our reviewers had to say:

    "I am impressed with the author's ability to include topical information, basic biology, and clinical relevance. This begins in the first chapter and is consistent throughout. This text fills a major gap between advanced virology and introductory biology texts… This text is the perfect blend of clinical virology, epidemiology, taxonomy, replication dynamics, and pathophysiology."

    "I really like this textbook. The approach to viruses corresponds to my thoughts of needing to know about the interaction of the virus and the host and not just the diseases that they cause."
