Table of Contents
1 Evolution, the Themes of Biology, and Scientific Inquiry 

Inquiring About Life 

CONCEPT 1.1 The study of life reveals common themes 

CONCEPT 1.2 The Core Theme: Evolution accounts for the unity and diversity of life 

CONCEPT 1.3 In studying nature, scientists make observations and form and test hypotheses 

CONCEPT 1.4 Science benefits from a cooperative approach and diverse viewpoints 


2 The Chemical Context of Life 

A Chemical Connection to Biology 

CONCEPT 2.1 Matter consists of chemical elements in pure form and in combinations called compounds 

CONCEPT 2.2 An element’s properties depend on the structure of its atoms 

CONCEPT 2.3 The formation and function of molecules depend on chemical bonding between atoms 

CONCEPT 2.4 Chemical reactions make and break chemical bonds 

3 Water and Life 

The Molecule That Supports All of Life 

CONCEPT 3.1 Polar covalent bonds in water molecules result in hydrogen bonding 

CONCEPT 3.2 Four emergent properties of water contribute to Earth’s suitability for life 

CONCEPT 3.3 Acidic and basic conditions affect living organisms 

4 Carbon and the Molecular Diversity of Life 

Carbon: The Backbone of Life 

CONCEPT 4.1 Organic chemistry is the study of carbon compounds 

CONCEPT 4.2 Carbon atoms can form diverse molecules by bonding to four other atoms 

CONCEPT 4.3 A few chemical groups are key to molecular function 

5 The Structure and Function of Large Biological Molecules 

The Molecules of Life 

CONCEPT 5.1 Macromolecules are polymers, built from monomers 

CONCEPT 5.2 Carbohydrates serve as fuel and building material 

CONCEPT 5.3 Lipids are a diverse group of hydrophobic molecules 

CONCEPT 5.4 Proteins include a diversity of structures, resulting in a wide range of functions 

CONCEPT 5.5 Nucleic acids store, transmit, and help express hereditary information 

CONCEPT 5.6 Genomics and proteomics have transformed biological inquiry and applications 


6 A Tour of the Cell 

The Fundamental Units of Life 

CONCEPT 6.1 Biologists use microscopes and biochemistry to study cells 

CONCEPT 6.2 Eukaryotic cells have internal membranes that compartmentalize their functions 

CONCEPT 6.3 The eukaryotic cell’s genetic instructions are housed in the nucleus and carried out by the ribosomes 

CONCEPT 6.4 The endomembrane system regulates protein traffic and performs metabolic functions 

CONCEPT 6.5 Mitochondria and chloroplasts change energy from one form to another 

CONCEPT 6.6 The cytoskeleton is a network of fibers that organizes structures and activities in the cell 

CONCEPT 6.7 Extracellular components and connections between cells help coordinate cellular activities 

CONCEPT 6.8 A cell is greater than the sum of its parts

7 Membrane Structure and Function 

Life at the Edge 

CONCEPT 7.1 Cellular membranes are fluid mosaics of lipids and proteins 

CONCEPT 7.2 Membrane structure results in selective permeability 

CONCEPT 7.3 Passive transport is diffusion of a substance across a membrane with no energy investment 

CONCEPT 7.4 Active transport uses energy to move solutes against their gradients 

CONCEPT 7.5 Bulk transport across the plasma membrane occurs by exocytosis and endocytosis 

8 An Introduction to Metabolism

The Energy of Life 

CONCEPT 8.1 An organism’s metabolism transforms matter and energy, subject to the laws of thermodynamics 

CONCEPT 8.2 The free-energy change of a reaction tells us whether or not the reaction occurs spontaneously 

CONCEPT 8.3 ATP powers cellular work by coupling exergonic reactions to endergonic reactions 

CONCEPT 8.4 Enzymes speed up metabolic reactions by lowering energy barriers 

CONCEPT 8.5 Regulation of enzyme activity helps control metabolism 

9 Cellular Respiration and Fermentation 

Life Is Work 

CONCEPT 9.1 Catabolic pathways yield energy by oxidizing organic fuels 

CONCEPT 9.2 Glycolysis harvests chemical energy by oxidizing glucose to pyruvate 

CONCEPT 9.3 After pyruvate is oxidized, the citric acid cycle completes the energy-yielding oxidation of organic molecules 

CONCEPT 9.4 During oxidative phosphorylation, chemiosmosis couples electron transport to ATP synthesis 

CONCEPT 9.5 Fermentation and anaerobic respiration enable cells to produce ATP without the use of oxygen 

CONCEPT 9.6 Glycolysis and the citric acid cycle connect to many other metabolic pathways 

10 Photosynthesis 

The Process That Feeds the Biosphere 

CONCEPT 10.1 Photosynthesis converts light energy to the chemical energy of food 

CONCEPT 10.2 The light reactions convert solar energy to the chemical energy of ATP and NADPH 

CONCEPT 10.3 The Calvin cycle uses the chemical energy of ATP and NADPH to reduce CO2 to sugar 

CONCEPT 10.4 Alternative mechanisms of carbon fixation have evolved in hot, arid climates

CONCEPT 10.5Life depends on photosynthesis  

11 Cell Communication 

Cellular Messaging 

CONCEPT 11.1 External signals are converted to responses within the cell 

CONCEPT 11.2 Reception: A signaling molecule binds to a receptor protein, causing it to change shape 

CONCEPT 11.3 Transduction: Cascades of molecular interactions relay signals from receptors to target molecules in the cell 

CONCEPT 11.4 Response: Cell signaling leads to regulation of transcription or cytoplasmic activities 

CONCEPT 11.5 Apoptosis integrates multiple cell-signaling pathways 

12 The Cell Cycle 

The Key Roles of Cell Division 

CONCEPT 12.1 Most cell division results in genetically identical daughter cells
