Bringing a conceptual framework to the study of biology
This popular study aid supports Campbell Biology, 11th Edition and is designed to help students structure and organize their developing knowledge of biology and create their own personal understanding of the topics covered in the text. While allowing for each student’s unique approach and focusing on the enjoyment of learning, the guide also shares a list of common strategies used by successful students as revealed through educational research. The Student Study Guide helps students learn and recall information through concept maps, chapter summaries, word roots, and a variety of interactive activities including multiple-choice, short-answer essay, art labeling, and graph-interpretation questions.

Michael Pollock is a retired biology instructor who earned his BSc (Hon Genetics) and PhD (Zoology) at Western University (previously known as the University of Western Ontario). During more than 25 years of teaching at Mount Royal University, he developed and taught many courses including non-majors biology, vertebrate zoology, reproductive biology, evolutionary medicine and medical terminology.
Martha R. Taylor has been teaching biology for more than 35 years. She earned her B.A. in Biology from Gettysburg College and her M.S. and Ph.D. in Science Education from Cornell University. She has taught introductory biology for both majors and non-majors at Cornell for many years and was most recently a lecturer for the Learning Strategies Center. Based on her experience in working with students from high school and community college through the university level, in classrooms, laboratories and tutorials, Dr. Taylor is committed to helping students create their own knowledge of and appreciation for biology. In addition to her work on the study guide, she is a coauthor on Campbell Biology: Concepts & Connections.
