Terry and Gerry Audesirk grew up in New Jersey, where they met as undergraduates. After marrying inthey moved to California, where Audesitk earned her doctorate in marine ecology at the University of Southern California and Gerry earned his doctorate in neurobiology at the California Institute of Technology.
As postdoctoral students at the University of Washington’s marine laboratories, they worked together on the neural bases of behavior, using a marine mollusk as a model system. Terry and Gerry are now professors of biology at the University of Colorado at Denver, where they have taught introductory biology and neurobiology since In their research lab, funded by the National Institutes of Health, they investigate the mechanisms by which neurons are harmed by low levels of environmental pollutants.
Terry and Gerry share a deep appreciation of nature and of the outdoors. They enjoy hiking auresirk the Rockies, running near their home in the foothills west of Denver, and attempting to garden at feet in the presence of hungry deer and elk.
They are long-time members of many conservation organizations.
Their daughter, Heather, has added another focus to their lives. Byers, a midwesterner transplanted to the hills of western Massachusetts, is a professor in the biology department at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He’s been a member of the faculty at UMass where he also completed his doctoral degree since Bruce teaches introductory biology courses for both nonmajors and majors; he also teaches courses in ornithology and biologgy behavior.
A lifelong fascination with birds ultimately led Bruce to scientific exploration of blology biology. His current research focuses on the behavioral ecology of birds, especially on the function and evolution of the vocal signals that birds use to communicate.
The pursuit of vocalizations often takes Bruce outdoors, where he can be found before dawn, tape recorder in hand, awaiting the first songs of a new day.

Showing of reviews. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem boology reviews right now. Please try again later. I was skeptical about reading other reviews on this book saying it was “bad” and didn’t make any sense, but I’m going to agree with them on this one. My class for college required that I purchase this book and so I have bioloyg other choice to read this book. I’m reading the first chapter and I don’t understand how on earth no pun intended they made basic biology so confusing.
I’ve taken biology before so this isn’t particularly new to me but this book makes it seems so confusing and difficult to understand.
Audesirk, Audesirk & Byers, Biology: Life on Earth with Physiology, 11th Edition | Pearson
I’m literally in the middle of reading Chapter 1 but I just had to stop to write this review because reading this textbook anymore is just going to make me angry. Do not buy this book or make the mistake of taking a class that requires this book. It’s obviously too early in the game, but dropping this class may have to be an option for me.
So it’s the end of the semester for me, and I thought I’d at least give a short post review. Biology is a difficult and complex subject and so it really isn’t the easiest to teach. I found that the chapter reviews at the end of every chapter really helped me physiologg the information. It’s not the easiest book, so you might have to re-read a paragraph here and there. I bought this textbook for my biology class yay, gen eds!
But audessirk least it wasn’t as miserable or confusing as many other textbooks I had the misfortune of reading. As far as textbooks go, this one is great.
It’s about average page length and chapter length. The pages are fairly sturdy wiith don’t wrinkle as easily as a normal book’s pages do. It has phtsiology nice, clean layout with lots of graphs and charts to help the visual learner.
The information is always relevant to the chapter titles, and the content doesn’t deviate much from other types of biology textbooks. A note for students whose classes may be asking for the 10th edition: Some small sections are switched around, but the chapters are otherwise exactly the same and phsiology in the same order.
I really suggest you save yourself a couple hundred bucks and buy this viology instead. You won’t be missing anything. As an undergraduate, I dreaded taking Biology. Science was never my strong suit and frankly, it bored me. Using this textbook, I took an introductory Bio class with lab over the summer. I did well and I actually retained the information. This book is set up in such a way that it incorporates real world incidents blood doping, plagues, scientific discoveries into the material to make it RELEVANT.
I always witth why I should even bother with science or math when I would never use it out in biolkgy real world, but that is infinitely not true. Sometimes people observe things without question. One person found this helpful. This was the required text for my community college “General Biology” class. I found it to be an excellent and easy to understand textbook. It had times more material than was covered in the lectures, as well.
Good explanatory sidebars, excellent end-of-chapter reviews. The book arrived in a timely manner. It was an old book, hardback. Worked great for my class.
I just finished reading g the first chapter. It really didn’t seem too complicated or confusing. However, it was only the first chapter.
Biology: Life on Earth with Physiology
I purchased this text because I had to. I was lucky enough to find a great deal for a brand new one. It came in very well wrapped. I’ll update my review on this textbook by the end of this class. The book was pretty rough on the outside partly torn cover the spine was coming off the book. Yet the inside of the book was in great condition. Overall I am okay with the book. So I bought this one instead. Didn’t let me down. Though some of bio,ogy material in chapter 13 is a tad bit outdated.
