About the Author

Michael Pollock is a retired biology instructor who earned his BSc (Hon Genetics) and PhD (Zoology) at Western University (previously known as the University of Western Ontario). During more than 25 years of teaching at Mount Royal University, he developed and taught many courses including non-majors biology, vertebrate zoology, reproductive biology, evolutionary medicine and medical terminology.Martha R. Taylor has been teaching biology for more than 35 years. She earned her B.A. in Biology from Gettysburg College and her M.S. and Ph.D. in Science Education from Cornell University. She has taught introductory biology for both majors and non-majors at Cornell for many years and was most recently a lecturer for the Learning Strategies Center. Based on her experience in working with students from high school and community college through the university level, in classrooms, laboratories and tutorials, Dr. Taylor is committed to helping students create their own knowledge of and appreciation for biology. In addition to her work on the study guide, she is a coauthor on Campbell Biology: Concepts & Connections.
