His research focused on desert and coastal plants. Neil's 30 years of teaching included introductory Biology Courses at Cornell University, Pomona College, and San Bernardino Valley College, where he received the college's first Outstanding Professor Award in 1986. For many years he was also a visiting scholar at UC Riverside. Neil was the founding author of Biology.

Lisa A. Urry is a Professor of Biology at Mills College. After earning a B.A. at Tufts University, she completed her Ph.D. at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Lisa has conducted research on gene expression during embryonic and larval development in sea urchins. Deeply committed to promoting opportunities in science for women and underrepresented minorities, she has taught courses ranging from introductory and developmental biology to an immersive course on the U.S./Mexico border.

Michael L. Cain is an ecologist and evolutionary biologist who is now writing full-time. Michael earned an A.B. from Bowdoin College, an M.Sc. from Brown University, and a Ph.D. from Cornell University. As a faculty member at New Mexico State University, he taught Introductory Biology, Ecology, Evolution, Botany, and Conservation Biology. Michael is the author of dozens of scientific papers on topics that include foraging behaviour in insects and plants, long-distance seed dispersal, and speciation in crickets. He is also a co-author of an ecology textbook.

Steven A. Wasserman is a Professor of Biology at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He earned an A.B. from Harvard University and a Ph.D. from MIT. Working on the fruit fly Drosophila, Steve has done research on developmental biology, reproduction, and immunity. Having taught genetics, development, and physiology to undergraduate, graduate, and medical students, he now focuses on Introductory Biology, for which he has been honored with UCSD's Distinguished Teaching Award.

Peter V. Minorsky is a Professor of Biology at Mercy College in New York, where he teaches Introductory Biology, Ecology, and Botany. He received his A.B. from Vassar College and his Ph.D. from Cornell University, Peter taught at Kenyon College, Union College, Western Connecticut State University, and Vassar College; he is also the science writer for the journal Plant Physiology.
