Biology is the study of life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, distribution, and taxonomy. This section contains many topics on Biology and Health Sciences and each of these categories contain many free biology books and resources and these are highly beneficial for teachers and students of. high school math. social sciences. literature and english. foreign languages.   Human Biology 16th Edition (appx. $56) is a surprisingly readable book that combines traditional and modern pedagogical teaching methods to impart a deep understanding of its concepts to students. It gives a big picture overview of physiology to help readers build a good foundation. Covers most of the human anatomy. Explains many technical terms. The seasonal variation of weight gain can be explained in some populations by seasonal differences in resource availability, nutritional variation and rates of disease, but for other, more well-nourished populations this explanation is not sufficient and there may exist an endogenous seasonal rhythm of weight gain in children. 10 Further.

  The season in which babies are born can have a dramatic effect on their future risk of neurological disorders, including seasonal affective disorder, bipolar depression and schizophrenia. The findings, published in the journalNature Neuroscience, come from a study into the seasonal imprinting that occurs in babies at birth. “Our biological clocks measure the day . Biology for AP ® Courses covers the scope and sequence requirements of a typical two-semester Advanced Placement ® biology course. The text provides comprehensive coverage of foundational research and core biology concepts through an evolutionary lens. Biology for AP ® Courses was designed to meet and exceed the requirements of the College Board’s AP ® . During the past four years, the field of developmental biology has begun a new metamorphosis. The Ninth Edition of Developmental Biology mirrors this shift with a wholly revised text, over new literature citations, and substantial reorganization of content. For example, species of unrelated animals, such as the arctic fox and ptarmigan, living in the arctic region have been selected for seasonal white phenotypes during winter to blend with the snow and ice (Figure ). These similarities occur not because of common ancestry, but because of similar selection pressures—the benefits of predators.
