Summary: Introduction to advanced biology is a full-colour textbook written specifically for the new Advanced level specifications for Biology. It is also supports Advanced level courses such as IB, AICE and international A levels. To help students make the transition from GCSE and gradually builds up to the depth of coverage required for AS or A level. The book starts with those topics found in the AS component of all specifications, amd concludes with those that are needed for the A component of the full A level course. A specification-matching matrix shows which chapters are required for the different AS and A2 specifications.
