HUMAN HEREDITY presents the concepts underlying human genetics in clear, concise language and engages non-Biology majors with examples that they can apply to themselves, their families, and their work environment. Author Michael Cummings explains the origin, nature, and amount of genetic diversity p...resent in the human population and how that diversity has been shaped by natural selection. The artwork and accompanying media support visual learners by teaching rather than merely illustrating the ideas under discussion. Examining the social, cultural, and ethical implications associated with the use of genetic technology, Cummings prepares students to become well-informed consumers of genetic-based health care services or providers of health care services.Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
