Description de l’éditeur

This is one of three volumes that cover the whole EDEXCEL iGCSE course. It targets teaching up to the age of 16 in biology in the UK.

This course acts as a brilliant springboard for any pupil wishing to study biology further at A level, IB or biology at ages 16-18 prior to university. This ebook will support and expand the reading of aspects of the UK GCSEs courses too.

For readers in other countries such as the US there is a detailed list of the contents covered by this volume so that it can be seen what is offered here. 

This ebook and the two associated other volumes (Human and Plant Biology) cover all of the topics for the Edexcel iGCSE and most of the topics covered by the AQA iGCSE in biology. 

This book specifically covers the topics directly linked to General biology. 


It covers the following topics;

Living organisms

Characteristics of living organisms

Kingdoms and classification

The structure of organisms

The structure of cells

Tissues, organs and organ systems

Cell biology

Structure of the cell

Enzymes

Respiration

Diffusion, osmosis and active transport

Reproduction and genetics

Reproduction of cells 

Mitosis and meiosis

Reproduction in plants and animals

Structure of the nucleus, chromosomes and genes

Inheritance

Variation

Evolution and selective breeding

Biotechnology

Genetic manipulation

Transgenic plants and animals

Microorganisms in food production

Cloning

Plant tissue culture

Increasing agricultural productivity

Growing crops

Use of greenhouses

Fish farming

Pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides

Key experiments on these topics

The text is as accurate and clear as possible with as many accompanying diagrams as possible.

Where appropriate there are animations or movies. I have usually used animations as they seem to be the best way to present information.

At the end of each chapter there is a series of questions to test the user on the chapter.

Also available are ebooks to cover the Human Biology and Plant Biology of these courses.

If these books sell well I have a series of UK A level and IB textbooks that will soon follow and be published here.
