Meet the Author


Judy Goodenough
Judy received her B.S. from Wagner College (Staten Island, NY), and her doctorate from New York University. She has 30 years of teaching experience at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, specializing in introductory level courses. The insights into student concerns and problems–gained from more than 25 years of teaching Human Biology and 20 years of team-teaching The Biology of Social Issues–have helped shape this book. In 1986, Judy was honored with a “Distinguished Teaching Award.” In addition to teaching, she has written articles in peer-reviewed journals, contributed chapters to several introductory biology texts, and written numerous laboratory manuals. With the author team of McGuire and Jakob, she is preparing Perspectives on Animal Behavior.

Betty McGuire
Betty received her B.S. in Biology from Pennsylvania State University, where she also played varsity basketball. She went on to receive an M.S. and Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and then spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. Her field and laboratory research emphasize the social behavior and reproduction of small mammals. She has published numerous research papers, co-authored the text Perspectives on Animal Behavior as well as several introductory biology study guides, and served as an Associate Editor for Mammalian Species, a publication of the American Society of Mammalogists. Betty taught Human Biology, Introductory Biology, Vertebrate Biology, and Animal Behavior at Smith College.
