This pack contains 1 copy of Campbell Biology: Concepts & Connections, Global Edition and 1 printed access card to Mastering Biology with eText.

Intended for non-majors or mixed biology courses.

Campbell Biology: Concepts & Connections continues to introduce pedagogical innovations, which motivate students not only to learn, but also engage with biology. This bestselling textbook is designed to help students stay focused with its hallmark modular organisation around central concepts and engages students in connections between concepts and the world outside of the classroom with Scientific Thinking, Evolution Connection and Connection essays in every chapter.


The 9th Edition offers students a framework organised around fundamental biological themes and encourages them to analyse visual representations of data with new Visualising the Data figures. A reorganised Chapter One emphasises the process of science and scientific reasoning, and robust instructor resources and multimedia allow students to engage with biological concepts in a memorable way. Unparalleled resources let instructors develop active and high interest lectures with ease.

Pearson MyLab™ is the world's leading online self-study, homework, tutorial and assessment product designed with a single purpose in mind: to improve the results of all higher education students, one student at a time.

Please note: The duration of access to a MyLab is set by your instructor for your specific unit of study. To access the MyLab you need a Course ID from your instructor.

Features & benefits

Stay focused:

  • A flexible modular format organised around central concepts paces student learning into manageable chunks and allows your syllabus to drive the course.
  • The Big Ideas at the start of each chapter serve as a roadmap to students by highlighting the overarching set of concepts that each chapter is built upon.
  • Numbered Central Concept Headings at the beginning of each module help students stay focused as they study.
  • Try This activities are active learning prompts that coach students to interact with the figures in their text to build understanding. New questions in Learning Catalytics allow instructors to turn these into in-class activities.
  • End-of-module Concept Check questions allow students to self-check their understanding along the way.

See Connections:

  • A focus on the five major themes in biology is inspired by the Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education report. These themes—Evolution, Organisation, Information, Energy and Matter, and Interactions—are introduced in Chapter One and examples are highlighted throughout the text to illustrate applications of these themes in all chapters.
  • Visualising the Concept Modules visually walk students through tough topics. There are 8 new modules of this type in the 9th Edition. Videos accompanying a select set of Visualising the Concept modules are assignable in Pearson Mastering Biology.
  • Career photo essays at the start of each unit highlight connections between chapter contents and careers that relate to an undergraduate general biology course. This new feature is designed to demonstrate to students the vast array of career opportunities available to STEM students.
  • High Interest Questions at the start of each chapter are designed to draw students in and spark curiosity about the chapter content. As the chapter unfolds, questions are further explored in Scientific Thinking or Evolution Connection Modules.
  • Connection Modules in every chapter relate biology to students’ lives and the world outside the classroom. Each Connection Module shows students how the course material connects to a wide variety of issues.
  • Evolution Connection Modules present concrete examples of the evidence for evolution within each chapter, providing a coherent theme for the study of life.


Think Scientifically:

  • Visualising the Data Figures present data in an infographic form and are marked by visualising the data icons in the textbook. These nineteen figures provide students with a fresh approach to understanding concepts illustrated by graphs and numerical data.
  • Scientific Thinking Modules emphasise the process of scientific inquiry and are called out with orange icons in every chapter.
  • Scientific Thinking concept check questions conclude each Scientific Thinking Module and prompt students to focus on aspects of the process of science such as forming and testing of hypotheses, experimental design, variables and controls, and the evaluation and communication of scientific results.
  • Scientifically accurate and up-to-date research ensures that you and your students have the most current information.
  • End-of-chapter review questions better reflect best practices of scientific teaching with review questions organized according to Bloom’s Taxonomy.
