New Open Textbook: Concepts of Biology-1st Canadian Edition

We are very happy to announce the release of a new open textbook.

Concepts of Biology 1st Canadian Edition COVER STORE In this survey text, directed at those not majoring in biology, we dispel the assumption that a little learning is a dangerous thing. We hope that by skimming the surface of a very deep subject, biology, we may inspire you to drink more deeply and make more informed choices relating to your health, the environment, politics, and the greatest subject that are all of us are entwined in, life itself.
In the adapted textbook, Concepts of Biology — 1st Canadian Edition, you will find the following units:

  • Unit 1: The Cellular Foundation of Life
  • Unit 2: Cell Division and Genetics
  • Unit 3: Molecular Biology and Biotechnology
  • Unit 4: Animal Structure and Function

Authors: Charles Molnar, Camosun College and Jane Gair, Camosun College and University of Victoria
This book is now available in the BC Open Textbook Collection.
