The Oxford Biology Primers series introduces prospective and current students of undergraduate-level bioscience to a broad range of topics from this dynamic experimental science, enticing readers to study further.

There has never been a more exciting time to be a biologist. Not only do we understand more about the biological world than ever before, but were using that understanding in ever-more creative and valuable ways. Our understanding of the way our genes work is being used to explore new ways to treat disease; our understanding of ecosystems is being used to explore more effective ways to protect the diversity of life on Earth; our understanding of plant science is being used to explore more sustainable ways to feed a growing human population.

Published in partnership with the Royal Society of Biology, the Oxford Biology Primers series encourages students to explore the breadth of biology for themselves to find out more about what scientists at the cutting edge of the subject are researching, and the biological problems they're trying to solve.

Titles in the series feature:

  • Scientific approach panels to help students understand a little more about how we know what we know;
  • Case studies to explore how a particular concept is relevant to everyday life, or provide an intimate picture of one aspect of the science described;
  • Bigger picture panels to help students think about some of the issues and challenges associated with the topic under discussion for example, ethical considerations, or wider impacts on society.

    More than anything, the Oxford Biology Primers will reveal to readers the awe-inspiring variety and intricacy of biology, and inspire students to explore the subject further for themselves.
