Excellence in Biology Level 3 has been fully updated to take the realignment of Level 3 Biology into account. This resource has a highly visual approach and presentation. Hundreds of specially drawn illustrations, all in full colour, help students to understand biological concepts. The text includes comprehensive coverage of external NCEA Level 3 Achievement Standards and also the internally-assessed ‘How animals maintain a stable internal environment’ and ‘Human manipulation of genetic material and its biological implications’. The content is biologically accurate and rigorous, and maximum priority is given to linking concepts. Each chapter concludes with a summary of essential facts and ideas, and a quick self-test of basics. Extension material is also provided for deeper understanding.
The idea that life is a cosmic, rather than a purely terrestrial phenomenon, has progressed from scientific heresy to mainstream science within the short timespan of a few decades. The theory of cometary panspermia developed by Fred Hoyle and the present author in the 1970’s has been vindicated by a spate of new discoveries in astronomy and biology, and also with startling new evidence of microbial fossils in meteorites and micrometeorites. The recent Kepler Telescope searches for exoplanets have indicated the presence of over 100 billion habitable planets separated by only a few light years, thus making panspermia and the transfer of microbial life between such planets an inevitable fact. The book presents a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the Hoyle-Wickramasinghe theory of cometary panspermia in a manner accessible to a wide general readership.
