A new edition of Climatology by Robert V. Rohli and Anthony J. Vega will publish June 1, 2017. Praised for its detail and accuracy, Climatology continues to lead as the most comprehensive presentation of our dynamic climate system. The Fourth Edition features a completely revised, full-color art program that enhances clarity and gradation of all maps, climographs, and images to help readers better understand the diversity of climate within varying climate types.
The text appeals to all students, as it covers the basics of atmospheric science in the early chapters and provides the breadth and depth of topics to challenge the more experienced reader. Climatology, Fourth Edition aims to improve students’ communication skills, encourage critical-thinking, and invoke a sense of social responsibility, making it the clear choice in this rapidly developing science.

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."
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."
Marine Biology. It's all here.
What is marine biology and why is it important? The Eleventh Edition of Introduction to the Biology of Marine Life answers these questions and inspires students to appreciate marine life and ocean ecosystems. This stunning text is the clear choice for students diving into this exciting science.
Here are 10 reasons to adopt this book:
- PRICE and VALUE—By far the best and most affordable marine biology textbook on the market
- High-quality art and photos—Over 450 NEW and revised high-quality photos and carefully rendered illustrations help support visual learners, clarify key concepts, and enhance the student reading experience
- Two NEW chapters—Polar Seas provides an introduction to the polar environment and Physical and Chemical Oceanography covers various basic oceanographic topics such as tides, waves, and circulation
Capturing the dynamism of our planet’s fascinating history, Earth’s Evolving Systems: The History of Planet Earth, Second Edition provides the bedrock to understanding this exciting science.
Here are 10 reasons to adopt this book:
- PRICE and VALUE—By far the best and most affordable geology textbook on the market
- High quality art and images—Over 300 NEW and REVISED images and illustrations that unlock complex topics and geological processes
- Unique and innovative approach—Employs a systems perspective to discuss how Earth's major systems, plate tectonics, and life have interacted with each other and evolved through geologic time
Molecular Biology. It's all here.
The wait is over. Long considered the quintessential molecular biology textbook, for decades Lewin's GENES XII has provided the most modern presentation to this transformative and dynamic science. Now in its twelfth edition, this classic text continues to lead with new information and cutting-edge developments, covering gene structure, sequencing, organization, and expression.
The recently published second edition of Earth's Evolving Systems: The History of Planet Earth makes teaching and learning geology easier. It explores the complex processes and interactions that have shaped our planet. Employing a systems perspective, this introductory text covers topics such as the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere, and discusses how these systems, plate tectonics, and life have interacted with each other and evolved through geologic time. This approach to Earth’s history integrates the study of modern Earth systems with past ones piquing students’ interest in the process. No other text bridges the gap between traditional historical geology and the behavior of Earth systems, and does so with higher quality art and illustrations. Capturing the dynamism of our planet’s fascinating history, Earth’s Evolving Systems: The History of Planet Earth, Second Edition provides the bedrock to understanding this exciting science.
