Originally conceived as part of the Foundation Science series, Biology: Concepts & Practices™ supports the performance expectations of the Next Generation Science Standards as well as gives students insight into how the content prepares them for life in the 21st century. These unifying ideas thread throughout Biology: Concepts & Practices™:

  • Life is very complex and very diverse and yet the underlying similarities are striking. By studying both the similarities and differences, understandings can be achieved about the origins of life, the development of diversity, and how organisms do (or do not) coexist on Earth.
  • Information transfers over space and time. Information transfers vertically in heredity and evolution and horizontally within and between cells. It can occur in nanoseconds during gene expression, within seconds or minutes within organisms, over generations in heredity, and over eons in evolution. It is the ability to use and combine information that gives rise to diversity.
  • Understanding of fundamental concepts in science can facilitate the design of new technologies and products that improve the quality of life.
