BIOZONE’s  Biology for VCE is dedicated to complete coverage of the  VCE study design.

Specifically designed and written for VCE Biology, these titles follow the Unit structure of the study design, incorporating a range of material for area of study 3 within context. Chapters based on key knowledge requirements begin with clear learning outcomes, and include a wealth of activities developed specifically for the study design.

These volumes combine BIOZONE’s clear presentation of content with an inquiry and evidence-based approach designed to engage students and build confidence and skills. Mathematical and practical components of the study design are well supported throughout and students are provided with ample opportunity to develop their skills in data handling, analysis, and experimental design.

With VCE Biology we deliver a comprehensive resource that is simple to use and easy to understand.

Activity 191:
Due to a printing error, page 268, "Activity 191: DNA Difference Between Species" is missing and there are two copies of "Activity 199: Species Have Different Chromosome Numbers".

PDF Link page 268: Activity 191- DNA Differences Between Species.

Students might wish to use the Activity 199 that is in the wrong place, as this has information added and was meant to have replaced 199 in its correct position. We apologise for this error, which was beyond our control.
