How Eukaryotic and Prokaryotic Cells Differ


Despite the vast diversity of living organisms on Earth, all life falls into only one of two categories: prokaryotes or eukaryotes. Examining the basic parts of a cell, cell types, cell function, and cell reproduction, this concise volume explains what makes certain cells eukaryotic and others prokaryotic and how the two cell types are related. Detailed diagrams complement the text to help readers easily identify various cell features and integrate textual and visual information, in line with Common Core requirements.
