Biology is designed for multi-semester biology courses for science majors. It is grounded on an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand. To meet the needs of today’s instructors and students, some content has been strategically condensed while maintaining the overall scope and coverage of traditional texts for this course. Instructors can customize the book, adapting it to the approach that works best in their classroom. Biology also includes an innovative art program that incorporates critical thinking and clicker questions to help students understand—and apply—key concepts.

Diabetes - A Global Challenge - Physiological Regulation of Blood Glucose Part 3 (09:47)
Rating

This presentation focus' on glucose and insulin, and how these are integrated in the intact organism, in continuation of this we’ll talk about, insulin and glucagon secretion, hepatic glucose production and plasma glucose concentrations. The purpose of this is to get an understanding of what happens in the body when you have type 2 diabetes. Furthermore we’ll talk about the possibility of developing an glucagon receptor antagonist, regarding the therapy of diabetes.

Diabetes - The Essential Facts - What Role Does Exercise Play ? (24:17)
Rating

This presentation talks about which role exercise plays in developing diabetes. We will describe what happens in the body when we exercise, and why these changes help us prevent and treat diabetes. In continuation of this we’ll talk about the interaction between insulin, glucose and muscle cells and how we through exercise, can change our health. Furthermore we’ll discuss how lifestyle can affect one’s future children in terms of developing diabetes later on.

Do Plants Eat?
Conditions of Use:

Through a teacher-led discussion, students realize that the food energy plants obtain comes from sunlight via the plant process of photosynthesis. They learn what photosynthesis is, at an age-appropriate level of detail and vocabulary, and then begin to question how we know that photosynthesis occurs, if we can't see it happening. Elodea is a common water plant that students can use to directly observe evidence of photosynthesis. When Elodea is placed in a glass beaker near a good light source, bubbles of oxygen will be released as products of photosynthesis. By counting the number of bubbles that rise to the surface in a five-minute period, students can compare the photosynthetic activity of Elodea in the presence of high and low light levels.

This problem space can be used to explore concepts related to metabolism. It is based on an article by Causey et al. (2004), entitled "Engineering Escherichia coli for Efficient Conversion of Glucose to Pyruvate". Students can use the original data from the article and various tools to visualize metabolic pathways to explore questions about bioengineering.
