Product Description

BIOZONE's latest AP Biology series is comprised of two titles, each covering different topics. AP2 Biology 2 covers the following topics: Metabolism, The Physiology and Behavior of Organisms and Ecology.

BIOZONE's 2017 editions of our popular AP Biology 1 & 2 student books build on the successful approach of previous editions. They feature revised content and easy-to-use tools for identifying program requirements and assessing student performance.



  • Energy in Living Systems
  • Enzymes and Metabolism

The Physiology and Behavior of Organisms

  • Homeostasis and Energy Allocation
  • Plant Structure and Adaptation
  • Comparing Animal Systems
  • Interactions in Physiological Systems
  • Defense Mechanisms
  • Timing and Coordination
  • Communicating and Responding


  • Populations and Communities
  • Energy Flow and Nutrient Cycles
  • The Diversity and Stability of Ecosystems

For ease of use, the full course work for AP Biology has been published as two companion titles (like 2 semesters).AP Biology 1 is the companion to this title. Each title can be purchased individually or as the AP Biology Bundle.

Some of the features of these significantly enhanced editions include:

  • Chapter introductions provide a summary of required knowledge, encapsulating the Essential Knowledge of the AP curriculum framework (2015) and matched point for point.
  • A Key Idea introduces each activity, providing a clear focus and “take-home” message for the student.
  • Activities to support student-led inquiry and a larger number of activities involving data analysis and modeling.
  • Case studies and required illustrative examples.
  • Easy-to-use coding for weblinks, content and concept connections, and science practices:
    • Science Practices are well supported through integrated activities in both volumes.
    • Concept and Content Connections codes enable students to make important connections across the entire program.
  • Content to support the 13 required practicals.
  • Both volumes include content adjustments and updates in light of the latest (2015) review of the framework and in keeping with the dynamic nature of science.
  • Review activities at the end of each chapter enable students to test their understanding and are ideal as formative assessment tasks.
  • Synoptic activities suitable as summative assessments conclude each section of work.

Features and Benefits

  • 400+ activities across the two companion titles: Varied, engaging activities provide ample opportunity for students to explore and test their understanding of the content.
  • The four big ideas provide a thematic framework for presenting a wealth of illustrative examples to support the required content.
  • Concept maps make connections between key content areas.
  • A key idea for each activity and access to support online engages students and supports a deeper understanding.
  • Enduring understandings are clearly identified and developed through the learning objectives and their supporting activities.
  • Essential knowledge: Learning outcomes are based on the essential knowledge requirements of the AP Biology Curriculum Framework, outlining the knowledge and skills students must acquire.
