A chapter outline, review questions, discussion questions, and additional reading lists for each chapter
A glossary of new terms with definitions and pronunciation
Appendices including a list of scientific names of all organisms mentioned in the text; biological controls and companion planting; coverage of a wide variety of plant types; horticultural information on house plants; brief discussions on how to cultivate vegetables and their nutritional values; and metric equivalents and conversion tables
Dynamic digital resources including customizable, auto-graded assessments; animation activities and virtual labs; hundreds of photos of plant anatomy; interactive eBook and adaptive SmartBook assignments; a teacher solutions manual; and customizable PowerPoint presentations to structure instruction
