About the Author

William Turnbaugh received his Ph.D. from Harvard University. His specialties include New World prehistory, Northeastern archaeology, and cultural ecology. He currently teaches at the University of Rhode Island.

Michael R. Cummings is the author or co-author of a number of widely used college textbooks, including HUMAN HEREDITY: PRINCIPLES AND ISSUES, HUMAN GENETICS AND SOCIETY, BIOLOGY: SCIENCE AND LIFE, CONCEPTS OF GENETICS, GENETICS: A MOLECULAR PERSPECTIVE, and ESSENTIALS OF GENETICS. He also has written sections on genetics for the MCGRAW-HILL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY and has published a newsletter on advances in human genetics for instructors and students. He received his Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from Northwestern University. His doctoral work, conducted in the laboratory of Dr. R.C. King, centered on ovarian development in Drosophila melanogaster. At the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he taught for more than 25 years, his research interests involved the role of the short arm/centromere region of human chromosome 21 aberrations. He now teaches at Illinois Institute of Technology. Dr. Cummings' interest in scientific literacy prompted him to organize a course in human genetics for nonmajors. He still teaches this course at present, in addition to genetics for biology majors and general biology.

Robert Jurmain received an A.B. in Anthropology from UCLA and a Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology from Harvard. He taught at San Jose State University from 1975 to 2004 and is now Professor Emeritus. During his teaching career, he taught courses in all major branches of physical anthropology, including osteology and human evolution, with the greatest concentration in general education teaching for introductory students. His research interests are skeletal biology of humans and non-human primates, paleopathology, and paleoanthropology. In addition to his three textbooks, which together have appeared in 30 editions, he is the author of STORIES FROM THE SKELETON: BEHAVIORAL RECONSTRUCTION IN HUMAN OSTEOLOGY (1999, Gordon Breach Publishers), as well as numerous articles in research journals.
