Long considered the quintessential molecular biology textbook, for decades Lewin's GENES 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. No other text offers a broader understanding of this exciting and vital science or does so with higher quality art and illustrations. Lewin's GENES XII continues to be the clear choice for molecular biology and genetics.
The long anticipated ninth edition of Genetics: Analysis of Genes and Genomes by Dan Hartl, Higgins Professor of Biology at Harvard University, is here! Genetics is a resource uniquely suited for learning and applying genetics to our world. Its DNA first presentation frames the discussion of genetics in modern terms, which provides students the context to then understand its Mendelian history.
What is the “big picture” in environmental science? Our authors know and effectively communicate it in Environmental Science: Systems and Solutions, Sixth Edition. Whether you view the subject through a scientific, social, political, or historical lens, you’ll find the concrete foundations here that work for courses in both environmental science and environmental studies.
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.

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."

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."
