Developed exclusively to accompany Strickberger's Evolution, Fifth Edition this student companion website offers a variety of resources designed to enhance your study of evolution and to give you an opportunity to explore topics from the text in more detail.
Interactive study tools include:
Practice Quizzes & Exercises
This robust companion website is designed exclusively to accompany Strickberger's Evolution, Fifth Edition and is suitable for a first undergraduate class in evolution, for a class on how organismal diversity arose and is maintained, for an introductory biology class using evolution as the guiding principle, or for a senior undergraduate class that seeks to synthesize a program of study using evolution as the framework.
Brian K. Hall-Dalhousie University
Brian Hall, born, raised and educated in Australia, has been associated with Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia since 1968, most recently as a University Research Professor and George S. Campbell Professor of Biology, and since July 2007 as University Research Professor Emeritus. He was Killam Research Professor at Dalhousie University (1990-1995), Faculty of Science Killam Professor (1996-2001) and Canada Council for the Arts Killam Research Fellow (2003-2005).
Trained as an experimental embryologist, for the past 40 years he has undertaken research into vertebrate skeletal development and evolution and played a major role in integrating evolutionary and developmental biology into the discipline now known as Evolutionary Developmental Biology (evo-devo); he wrote the first evo-devo text book , published in 1990 and a second edition in 1999 (Hall 1999a).
A fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and Foreign Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Dr. Hall has earned numerous awards for his research, teaching and writing, including the 2005 Killam Prize in Natural Sciences, one of the top scientific awards in Canada.

Benedikt Hallgrímsson-University of Calgary
Benedikt Hallgrímsson was born in Reykjavik, Iceland, and completed his studies at the University of Alberta and the University of Chicago. A biological anthropologist and evolutionary biologist, he combines developmental genetics and bioinformatics with morphometrics to address the developmental basis and evolutionary significance of phenotypic variation and variability. His work has focused on humans and other primates and comparative approaches to study the evolutionary developmental biology of variation. He is the editor-in-chief of Evolutionary Biology, a journal dedicated to the synthesis of ideas in evolutionary biology and related disciplines.
Based at the University of Calgary, Dr. Hallgrímsson teaches organismal biology and anatomy. There he has received several Gold Star Teaching Awards, a Letter of Excellence Lecturer Award and the McLeod Distinguished Achievement Award. He is featured on the University of Calgary "Great Teachers" website. From the American Association of Anatomists he received the Basmajian/Williams and Wilkins Award for educational contributions in 2001.
