Designed to give students a deep understanding of the central topics of introductory biology, E. O. Wilson’s Life on Earth is a captivating iBooks Textbook presented as a seven-unit collection. In this first unit, we explore the unity of life by examining the shared features of all living things, inherited from a universal common ancestor. In addition, we look at the evolutionary mechanisms that—over the course of 3.5 billion years—created the countless species and forms of life that populate our diverse living planet. Each unit of the engagingly interactive E. O. Wilson’s Life on Earth features video, photo galleries, and Multi-Touch images and illustrations that inspire students to study, enjoy, and help protect the wonders of life on Earth.

Can Not Download
I have been trying to download this series of books for a long time now. I just get "E. O. Wilson’s Life on Earth Unit 1 failed to download” and same for the others. Apparently looking at the other reviews here, this is a common problem. I’ve tried to log out, deauthorize and reauthorize, reset things, reboot, etc. Nothing works. Does Apple even care anymore?
Promising textbook...really useful for students...
