I am looking for a good introductory biology text to use in teaching
non-majors.  Currently, we are using Starr and Taggart "Biology: The
unity and Diversity of LIfe" sixth edition.  With the new edition out it
is time to consider a new text.

  I like to find something that makes biology come alive and be
relavent, with less technical jargon.  I am especially interested in a
text that focuses on the botanical aspects.  The class is team taught
with one instructor teaching the animal portion and the other teaching
the other 4 kingdoms.  

Any suggestions welcomed
