About the Author

Neil A. Campbell

Neil Campbell combined the investigative nature of a research scientist with the soul of an experienced and caring teacher. He

earned his M.A. in Zoology from UCLA and his Ph.D. in Plant Biology from the University of California, Riverside, where he received the Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2001. Neil published numerous research articles on desert and coastal plants and how the sensitive plant (Mimosa) and other legumes move their leaves. His 30 years of teaching in diverse environments included general biology courses at Cornell University, Pomona College, and San Bernadino Valley College, where he received the colleges first Outstanding Professor Award in 1986. Neil was a visiting scholar in the Department of Botany and Plant Sciences at the University of California, Riverside. In addition to his authorship of this book, he coauthored Biology: Concepts & Connections and Essential Biologywith Jane Reece. Neil died shortly after the initial planning of this revision.

 

Jane B. Reece

Lead author Jane Reece, Neil Campbells longtime collaborator, has participated on every edition of BIOLOGYfirst as an editor and contributor, then as an author. Her education includes an A.B. in Biology from Harvard University, an M.S. in Microbiology from Rutgers University, and a Ph.D. in Bacteriology from UC Berkeley. Before migrating to California from the Northeast, she taught biology at Middlesex County College and Queensborough Community College. At UC Berkeley, and later as a postdoctoral fellow in genetics at Stanford University, her research focused on genetic recombination in bacteria. Besides her work on BIOLOGY,she has been a coauthor on Biology: Concepts & Connections, Essential Biology, andThe World of the Cell.

 

For the Eighth Edition, Jane is joined by five coauthors whose contributions reflect their biological expertise as scientific

researchers and their teaching sensibilities gained from years of experience as instructors.

 

Lisa A. Urry

Lisa Urry (Units 1-3, Chapters 2-21, and Chapter 47) is a professor at Mills College and was a major contributor

to the Seventh Edition. After graduating from Tufts University with a double major in Biology and French, Lisa completed her Ph.D. in Molecular and Developmental Biology at MIT. Following postdoctoral appointments at Harvard Medical School, Tufts

University, and UC Berkeley, she began teaching at Mills College in Oakland, California, where she currently holds the Letts-Villard

Professorship and serves as Chair of the Biology Department. She has published research articles on various topics involving

gene expression during embryonic development. Her current research interest is in sea urchin development. Lisa is also deeply

committed to promoting opportunities for women in science education and research.

 

Michael L. Ca in

Michael Cain (Units 4 and 5, Chapters 22-34) is an ecologist and evolutionary biologist currently at Bowdoin College. Michael earned a joint major in Biology and Math from Bowdoin College, an M. Sc. from Brown University, and a Ph.D. in Ecology and

Evolutionary Biology from Cornell University. After postdoctoral work in plant ecology at the University of Connecticut and molecular genetics at Washington University in St. Louis, Michael went on to teach general biology, ecology, and evolution in a diverse range of settings, including Carleton College, New Mexico State University, and the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Indiana. Michael is the author of dozens of scientific papers on topics that include foraging behavior in insects and plants, long-distance seed dispersal, and speciation in crickets.

 

Peter V. Minorsky

Peter Minorsky (Unit 6, Chapters 35-39) revised Unit 6 for the Sixth and Seventh Editions and is a professor at Mercy College in New York, where he teaches evolution, ecology, botany, and introductory biology. He is also the science writer for the journal Plant Physiology. He received his B.A. in Biology from Vassar College and his Ph.D. in Plant Physiology from Cornell University. After a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, Peter taught at Kenyon College, Union College, Western Connecticut State University, and Vassar College. He is an electrophysiologist who studies plant responses to stress and is currently exploring the possible effects of geomagnetism on plant growth.

 

Steven A. Wasserman

Steve Wasserman (Unit 7, Chapters 40-46 and 48-51) is a professor at the University of California, San Diego. He earned his A.B. in Biology from Harvard University and his Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from MIT. Since a postdoctoral sojourn at UC Berkeley, where he investigated topological transformations of DNA, he has focused on regulatory pathway mechanisms. Working with the fruit fly Drosophila, he has contributed to the fields of embryogenesis, reproduction, and immunity. As a faculty member at the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center and UC San Diego, he has taught genetics, development, and physiology to undergraduate, graduate, and medical students.

Customer Reviews

MasteringBio = amazing5
This book is a good biology text book -- it's pretty easy to read and has interesting examples and real-world applications of some of the concepts. The MasteringBio website, though, is AWESOME. It comes with an ebook version of the text book, so you don't have to carry it around with you (good because it is huge and really heavy). It also has quizzes and mini tests that you can take online to see if you understand the material. The best part in my opinion though is that there are all kinds of animations and interactive learning tools that make the material super easy to understand. I absolutely recommend it!

Fundamental Text5
Some Pros about this book:
1. Change is good and the help of co-authors has made this book much better than previous editions.
2. This book will provide students well rounded knowledge of most biological concepts.
3. Up to date (considering date of publication).
4. Genetics section is superior compared even to Genetics textbooks.
5. Embryology is well discussed or at least mentioned in almost every chapter.
6. Systems biology made simple to understand (almost like reading a Histology or Anatomy and Physiology text)
7. Plant biology well discussed.
8. Research Method boxes made very easy to understand.
9. Diagrams are succinct and easy to read; most have labeled processes.
10. The order of chapters is for the most part good... go from 1 to 56. (Reader should consider joining discussions on plants rather than reading straight through the book though...)

Some Cons about this book:
1. This book constantly refers to a certain "enzyme" or "protein" without giving its name.
a. you could find these in any well-rounded Genetics text.
2. Biotechnology and Genomic Evolution chapters are kind of dull, simply because of the amount of information presented.
a. Probably a con of any book discussing those two topics.
3. Text makes the reader refer to other chapters quite often. This makes the book shorter but sometimes confusing.

I would recommend this book for anyone to read, especially to students studying Biology in pre-professional programs who do not use this book at their university.

Very Good if you can lift it5
I completed my B.A. in biology over 30 years ago and got this book for self-study and to catch up with progress in topics outside of my work experience. The sections seem well written and illustrated. Since this is an introductory text it has sidebars and interviews meant to interest the intro student. I'd leave those out, if only to make the book less massive.
