    Biology for the Global Citizen is a customizable, accessible, introductory learning resource for students with varying backgrounds in biology. The text encourages students to be inquisitive, sensible, and attentive, so they may seek and demand truth in all areas of life and act as informed global citizens. Through engaging material, personal applications, and active learning experiences, students develop a basic understanding of how science, and biology in particular, are pertinent to their lives.

    The text is comprised of a series of modules that include related laboratories. Each module explores key concepts in biology and features sections on applying science to life, quick review questions, and points of inquiry to facilitate learning. The laboratories, using computer simulations accessible through the free software tool NetLogo, reinforce the material, apply the scientific method, enhance students’ quantitative literacy, employ data to support conclusions, and emphasize critical thinking and analysis. The units within the text cover essential chemistry concepts, cells, genetics, evolution and natural selection, and ecology and the environment.

    Developed to increase students’ interest in biology and demonstrate how key concepts in the discipline have application in their everyday lives, Biology for the Global Citizen is an exemplary resource for foundational courses in science and biology.

    "This book lives up to its name and is truly meant to educate students to become well-rounded global citizens. The chapters are well organized and written in a concise but easy-to-understand manner. I loved the real-world examples and connections that the authors have included. I also appreciated the active learning points of inquiry questions that come with the book, these are great to continue the class discussions beyond what is in the textbook and also assign as extra credit assignments. Having the lab exercises as part of the book is definitely a bonus!"
