Test bank for Biology Exploring the Diversity of Life 3rd canadian Edition by Peter Russell

Welcome to an exploration of the diversity of life. The main goal of this text is to guide you on a journey of discovery about life’s diversity across levels ranging from molecules to genes, cells to organs, and species to ecosystems. Along the way, we will explore many questions about the mechanisms underlying diversity as well as the consequences of diversity for our own species and for others. Presenting the awe-inspiring diversity of life in an evolutionary context – from algae fuel to zombie worms – the 3rd Canadian edition continues to inspire students and instructors to better understand the workings and wonders of the biological world.
