Corrections for Prentice Hall Biology ©2002

As part of its Open Book Initiative, Pearson Education has established an Internet-based communication policy that alerts educators to any factual or typographical errors or areas of possible misunderstanding in its school programs. In accordance with this policy, Prentice Hall is alerting you to corrections made in Prentice Hall Biology © 2002.

We organized the corrections by category:

  • Corrections of factual errors
  • Corrections of typographical or grammatical errors
  • Changes for clarification, where the original wording or art could be improved to support student understanding
Publishers typically reprint books several times over the life of a copyright. Corrections can be made in each printing. Thus, depending on which printing of Prentice Hall Biology you have, these corrections may already appear in your textbook.

Key: Fig. = Figure
Ch. = Chapter
par. 1, par. 2, etc. = paragraph 1, paragraph 2, etc. (an incomplete paragraph at the top of a page is counted as paragraph 1)
ques. 1, ques. 2, etc. = question 1, question 2, etc.
col. 1, col. 2, etc. = column 1, column 2, etc.
ans. = answer
