A comprehensive text for A level Biology which provides clear explanations with a controlled language level.

Review:

'... this is a very thoughtful and delightful work, carefully argued, the fruit of wide reading and sustained thought ... It is also a delight to read.' Anthropos '[An] excellent, stimulating and innovative book ... [Tonkin] presents a new way of looking at oral history and also a theoretical discussion on the very nature of oral tradition.' Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute 'This is a timely book. It brings together matters of current interest in recent works on memory, ethnohistory and orality, and it attempts to synthesise a fruitful approach to a complex body of material ... [It] is suggestive, thought-provoking and never dull. It points throughout towards novel avenues of thought and interesting angles on a fascinating collection of oral and literary sources. It is certainly a book which serious students of oral genres should have on their book-shelves.' The Times Literary Supplement

Long description

This is a comprehensive, full colour, A-level biology text designed to be accessible from a double award GCSE science knowledge base. The text contains clear explanations of facts and concepts, with a controlled language level to ensure accessibility for all A-level students, including those for whom English is a second language. Where relevant, the applications of biology to industry and medicine have been given. There is an appendix covering the essential chemistry in an accessible form. The text includes core and extension material, to allow differentiation for more able students and there are questions throughout the text and end-of-chapter questions to test students' understanding. The high quality annotated artwork is drawn by Geoff Jones.
