Meet the Author

Neil A. 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. Dr. Campbell published numerous research articles on how certain desert plants thrive in salty soil and how 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 Bernardino Valley College, where he received the college's first Outstanding Professor Award in 1986. Most recently Dr. Campbell 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 BIOLOGY with Jane Reece. Each year, over 600,000 students worldwide use Campbell/Reece biology textbooks.


Jane B. Reece has worked in biology publishing since 1978, when she joined the editorial staff of Benjamin Cummings. 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 the University of California, Berkeley. At UC Berkeley and later as a post-doctoral fellow in genetics at Stanford University, her research focused on genetic recombination in bacteria. Dr. Reece taught biology at Middlesex County College (New Jersey) and Queensborough Community College (New York). As an editor at Benjamin Cummings, Dr. Reeceplayed major roles in a number of successful textbooks. In addition to being a coauthor with Neil Campbell on Biology: Concepts & Connections, and BIOLOGY, she coauthored The World of the Cell, Third Edition, with W.M. Becker and M.F. Poenie.


Eric J. Simon is an Assistant Professor of Biology at New England college in Henniker, New Hampshire. He teaches introductory biology to both biology majors and no-biology majors, as well as upper-level biology courses in genetics, microbiology, and molecular biology. Dr. Simon received a B.A. in Biology and Computer Science and an M.A. in Biology from Wesleyan University, and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry at Harvard University. Currently, he is working toward an M.S.Ed. in Educational Psychology. Dr. Simon's diverse classroom experience includes teaching both biology majors and non-biology majors at numerous institutions, including St. John's University (Minnesota), Minneapolis Community and Technical College–where he earned an Outstanding Teacher Award–and Fordham College at Lincoln Center in New York City. Dr. Simon's research focuses on innovative ways for using technology to improve teaching and learning in the science classroom, particularly among non-biology major students.

    Very Highly Recommended! Amazing Customer Service

    Woody's Books is a wonderful company to purchase your books from. They are affordable,fast,friendly,and they deliver an overall great product. I purchased a newly used book from Woody's, and it came in even better condition. It was shrink wrapped and survived the rugged shipping service. After I received my book, Woody's would go to the extra effort to send out a follow up email to confirm that the product was to my satisfaction. How much better does that get??!! Visit Woody's books and get your next book from their affordable website. Great product guaranteed!
