About the Author
Canadian author's bios:
Fiona Rawle received her Ph.D. from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. She is a teaching-stream faculty member at the University of Toronto at Mississauga, where she teaches Introduction to Evolution and Evolutionary Genetics, Introductory Genetics, and Molecular Basis of Disease. Fiona’s teaching and pedagogical research interests focus on several areas: (1) the development of case studies to immerse students in real-world biological challenges and allow students to connect with material from different perspectives; (2) the development of active learning techniques that can be used in large class settings. Active learning has been shown to increase student comprehension of complex biological topics; and (3) the development of scientific literacy interventions that can be used across the undergraduate biology curriculum.
Dion Durnford is a professor at the University of New Brunswick, in Fredericton. He earned a B.Sc. in Biology from Dalhousie University and a Ph.D. in Botany from the University of British Columbia. His research has focused on the evolution of light-harvesting antenna systems and the role of these proteins in light-harvesting and photo-protection in microalgae. His recent work is examining how microalgae age and their strategies for increasing longevity. Dion was the recipient of the 2002 Faculty of Science Excellence in Teaching award and the 2010 Allan P. Stewart Award for Excellence in Teaching.
Chris Moyes is a comparative physiologist, focusing on the muscle biochemistry and energetics. He received his Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of British Columbia (1991) and is currently a Professor in the Department of Biology, Queen's University. He has published more than 100 research papers and contributed to four books. He is coauthor of Principles of Animal Physiology, first published in 2006.
Sandra Walde is a professor of biology and associate dean of science at Dalhousie University. She received her B.Sc. in Biology and Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of Calgary, and then went to the University of California, Santa Barbara, as a post-doctoral fellow. At Dalhousie, she teaches general ecology to first and second year students, and population ecology to upper year students. Sandy's research has focussed on dispersal and ecological interactions in aquatic and terrestrial communities. She feels lucky that her field work has taken her to some beautiful places, including studies of stream invertebrate communities in Alberta and Nova Scotia, and research on native fishes in the lakes of the Patagonian Andes.
Ken Wilson is a professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Saskatchewan. He has a B.Sc. in Biochemistry from the University of Waterloo and a Ph.D. in Plant Science from the University of Western Ontario. His research focuses on the perception of environmental stresses in plant cells and the regulation of photosynthesis. However, he has published research papers on topics ranging from the acclimation of plants to ultraviolet light, to the identification of algal species for use as sources of biodiesel. He teaches Introductory Biology, Plant Physiology and Genetics, as well as supervising graduate student research projects. In 2010, he received the Provost's Award for Outstanding Teaching and the College of Arts and Sciences Teaching Excellence Award from the University of Saskatchewan.
