Biology for Health

Applying the activities of daily living

by S.H. Cedar

Understanding complex biology

Biology for Health offers a unique approach to the teaching of biology. It links elements of anatomy and physiology (A&P) with the everyday activities you do without thinking, for example, eating, drinking, sleeping, moving – the 'Activities of Daily Living'. The major organs and systems are introduced in an approachable manner, and are explained so that they can be applied to practice. This instantly makes complex biological processes easier to understand.
