50 biology ideas you really need to know

£9.99

Are all evolutionary changes due to natural selection? Do we inherit behaviour? How can we regrow damaged body parts? Are all living things part of a super-organism? This book provides succinct answers to these questions – and many more – in 50 lucid and engaging essays. From mass extinction to immunity, and from sociobiology to swarm behaviour, it will open you eyes to the fundamental biological processes that are essential to all life on earth, beginning with innovations unique to animals – such as the development of muscles and importance of circulation – and moving through to genetics, cells, tissues and, finally, the nature of groups of organisms.
