Biology 2e
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Biology 2e is designed to cover the scope and sequence requirements of a typical two-semester biology course for science majors. The text provides comprehensive coverage of foundational research and core biology concepts through an evolutionary lens. Biology includes rich features that engage students in scientific inquiry, highlight careers in the biological sciences, and offer everyday applications. The book also includes various types of practice and homework questions that help students understand—and apply—key concepts. The 2nd edition has been revised to incorporate clearer, more current, and more dynamic explanations, while maintaining the same organization as the first edition. Art and illustrations have been substantially improved, and the textbook features additional assessments and related resources.

In this video, Paul Andersen describes both weather and climate. Weather refers to the day-to-day conditions on the Earth's surface, including temperature, wind, humidity, air pressure, and precipitation. Climate means the long-term conditions on the Earth's surface. Both climate and weather are determined by sunlight, water, landforms, and life forms. [7:47]

Rating
0.0 stars

Students investigate the weather from a systems approach, learning how individual parts of a system work together to create a final product. Students learn how a barometer works to measure the Earth's air pressure by building a model using simple materials. Students analyze the changes in barometer measurements over time and compare those to actual weather conditions. They learn how to use a barometer to understand air pressure and predict actual weather changes.
