Committed to Excellence in the Raven and Johnson’s Biology 11th Edition (PDF). This latest edition continues the evolution of Raven & Johnson’s Biology.

The best-selling author team is committed to continually improving the textbook keeping the college student and learning foremost. The integrated pedagogical features expand the biology students’ learning process and enhance their learning experience. This latest 11th edition of the etextbook maintains the clear accessible and engaging writing style of past editions with the solid framework of pedagogy that highlights an emphasis on scientific inquiry and evolution that have made this a leading etextbook for students majoring (or minoring) in biology. This emphasis on the organizing power of evolution is combined with an integration of the importance of cellular molecular biology and genomics to offer our readers a book that is student friendly and current. Our author team is committed to producing the best possible biology textbooks for both faculty and student. The lead author Kenneth Mason from the University of Iowa has taught majors biology at 3 different major public universities for more than 15 years. Jonathan Losos from the Harvard University is at the cutting edge of evolutionary biology research and Susan Singer from the Carleton College has been involved in science education policy issues on a national level. All three authors bring varied instructional and content expertise to this 11th edition of Biology.
