The history of women field biologists, embedded in a history largely made and recorded by men, has never been written. Compilations of biographies have been assembled, but the narrative--their story--has never been told. Given the preponderance of today's professional female ecologists, animal behaviorists, systematists, conservation biologists, wildlife biologists, restoration ecologists, and natural historians, it is time to tell this story--the challenges and hardships they faced and still face, and the prominent role they have played and increasingly play in understanding our natural world. Each woman highlighted here followed a unique path. For some, personal wealth facilitated their work; some worked alongside their husbands. Many served as invisible assistants to men, receiving little or no recognition. Others were mavericks who carried out pioneering studies and whose published works are still read and valued today. All served as inspiration and proved to the women who would follow that women are as capable as men at studying nature in nature. Their legacy lives on today. The 75 female field biologists interviewed for this book are further testament that women have the intellect, stamina, and passion for fieldwork.
In this guide, educators and authors David Upegui and David E. Fastovsky offer a pedagogical prescription for how you can integrate the study of racial justice with evolutionary biology in your existing high-school biology curriculum. Designed as a practical manual for teaching, the chapters focus on teaching concepts of equity through evolutionary biology modules, a cornerstone for building students' scientific understanding of biotic diversity. Ready-to-use lesson plans are situated in a historical and theoretical context of science as it relates to racial oppression, and demonstrate how rigorous science education can lead to your students' liberation and personal empowerment despite the historically problematic history of some applications of science. The contextual material provided allows the lessons to be implemented across a variety of classrooms regardless of initial familiarity with DEI. Ideal for secondary biology teachers and their students, particularly in grades 10-12, this book synthesizes timely ideas for high-school educators, harnessing the power of rigorous science to combat marginalization. Lessons and activities have been classroom-tested and are aligned with three different standards: Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS); College board (AP Biology); Vision and Change; and use the 5E format
This topical volume in the respected Encyclopedia series is the first in many years to bring together all important aspects of developmental biology in one source, from morphogenesis and organogenesis, via epigenetic regulation of gene expression to evolutionary developmental biology. The editor-in-chief has assembled an outstanding team of contributors to review these topics, creating an authoritative work for many years to come. The result is a unique, top-level reference in developmental biology for researchers, students and professionals alike.
