内容説明

This introduction to the fundamentals of modern biology uses ecology as a starting point in discussing major biological problems such as over population, stress, pollution and nuclear radiation. The book then examines energetics as a basis for presenting information on biosynthesis, metabolism, cell functions and nutrition. Other major areas discussed are hormonal and nervous regulation and behavior; reproduction, life cycles and genetics; the physiological and structural processes in plants and animals; immunology; the evolution of life and the world ecosystem.
