Publisher Description

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. This sixth unit surveys the astonishing diversity of life—from bacteria and viruses to reptiles and mammals. There are a million named species on our planet (and many more to be discovered). What are they? How do they live? And which evolutionary paths did they take to become the way they are? 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.

Gotta to write a review

The book is absolutely great, giving me a spectacular vista of the diversity systematically. The whole series are wonderful and a must get. However, there are some bugs, one of which is the interaction of the evolution tree about prokaryotic and the one about protists. The clades just missing, and I don't know how to get them out. Please fix. Thank you.

Download workaround

I had no trouble downloading Books 1-5 but couldn’t download this one. Here’s what I did to get it:

In iTunes, I clicked the little “v” arrow next to “Download” and I copied the link. I went back to my web browser and pasted it into the URL space. It brought me to a web page where I could click a “View in iBooks” button instead of “Download” button. After I chose to view it in iBooks, I got a screen in *iBooks* not in *iTunes* and once I clicked “Download” on that screen the download began and worked perfectly.

I had to do the same for Book 7.
