Название: Biology: Nasta Edition (PART 1 of 2)

Авторы: Campbell, Reece


MUch has changed in the world since the completion
of the previous edition of BIOLOGY. In the realm
of the biological sciences, the sequencing of the
genomes ofmany more species has had deep ramifications in
diverse areas of research, providing new insights, for example,
into the evolutionary histories of numerous species.
There has been an explosion of discovery about small RNA
molecules and their roles in gene regulation and, at the other
end of the size spectrum, our knowledge of Earth's biodiversity
has expanded to encompass hundreds of new species, in·
eluding parrots, monkeys, and orchids. And during the same
period, biology has become more prominent than ever in our
daily lives. The news is filled with stories about the promise
of personalized medicine, novel cancer treatments, the possibility
of producing biofuels with the help ofgenetic engineering,
and the use of genetic profiling in solving crimes. Other
news stories report climate change and ecological disasters,
new drug-resistant strains ofthe pathogens that cause tuberculosis
and parasitic infections, and famine-crises in the
world around usthat are posing new challenges for biologists
and their allies in the other sciences. On a personal level,
many colleagues and I have missed our inspiring friend, the
late Neil Campbell, even as our commitment to leadership in
biological education has grown. Our changing world needs
biologists and a scientifically literate citizenry as never be·
fore, and we are committed to working toward that goal.
