About The Author

Lisa A. Urry

Lisa A. Urry

Dr. Lisa Urry is Professor of Biology and Chair of the Biology Department at Mills College in Oakland, California, and a Visiting Scholar at the UofC, Berkeley. After graduating from Tufts University with a double major in biology and French, Lisa completed her Ph.D. in molecular and developmental biology at MIT. Lisa has published a number of research papers, most of them focused on gene expression during embryonic and larval development in sea urchins. Dr. Urry has also taught a variety of courses, from introductory biology to developmental biology and senior seminar. As a part of her mission to increase understanding of evolution, Dr. Urry also teaches a non-majors course called Evolution for Future Presidents and is on the Teacher Advisory Board for the Understanding Evolution website developed by the University of California Museum of Paleontology. Lisa is also deeply committed to promoting opportunities for underrepresented minorities and women in science.

Michael L. Cain

Michael L. Cain

Dr. Michael L. Cain got his A. B. from Bowdoin College in Biology and Mathematics and he was awarded a summa cum laude. Dr. Cain did his M. Sc. from Brown University in the Division of Applied Mathematics and his Ph. D. from Cornell University in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.

His Teaching Interests include introductory biology (for nonmajors and majors), evolution, ecology, botany, biostatistics, and mathematical biology. Dr. Cain's research interests include ecology and evolution of plants, ecological and evolutionary dynamics in hybrid zones, long-distance dispersal, and spatial spread and search behavior in plants and animals.

Dr. Neil A. Campbell (late. died in 2004) got his MA from the University of California, LA, and his Ph.D. from the University of California. His research focused on coastal and desert plants. Dr. Campbell’s 30+ years of teaching included introductory biology courses at Pomona College, Cornell University, and San Bernardino Valley College, where he received the college’s first Outstanding Professor Award in 1986. For many years, Neil was also a visiting scholar at UC Riverside. Neil was the founding author of the popular Campbell BIOLOGY series.

Steven A. Wasserman

Steven A. Wasserman

Dr. Steven Wasserman is a professor at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He earned his A.B. in Biology from Harvard University and his Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from MIT. Through his research on regulatory pathway mechanisms in the fruit fly Drosophila, Professor Wasserman has contributed to the fields of reproduction, developmental biology, and immunity. As a faculty member at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and UCSD, Steve has taught development, genetics, and physiology to graduate, undergraduate, and medical students. He has also served as the research mentor for more than a dozen doctoral students and more than fifty aspiring scientists at the high school and undergraduate levels. Wasserman has been the recipient of distinguished scholar awards from both the Markey Charitable Trust and the David and Lucille Packard Foundation. In 2007, he received UCSD's Distinguished Teaching Award for undergraduate teaching.

Campbell Biology in Focus, 2nd Edition, (PDF) emphasizes the essential concepts, content, and scientific skills needed for success in the college introductory course for biology majors. Campbell Biology in Focus 2e PDF is the best-selling “short” etextbook for the introductory college biology course for science and non-science majors. Every unit takes an approach to streamlining the material that best fits the needs of instructors and students, based on curriculum initiatives, surveys, reviews, discussions with hundreds of biology professors, careful analyses of course syllabi, interviews with science students, and the report Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education. The 2nd Edition builds on the Campbell hallmark standards of clarity, accuracy, and pedagogical innovation, going beyond this foundation to help college students make connections visually across chapters, interpret real-world data from research, and synthesize their knowledge. The accompanying digital resources include new, mobile-friendly tools that help instructors teach challenging topics better than ever before; integrate the eText with videos and animations; and allow science students to learn, test, and retest until they achieve mastery of the content.

Focus. Practice. Engage.
