About the Author

Eldon Enger

Eldon D. Enger received a B.A. and an M.S. from the University of Michigan. He is professor emeritus of biology at Delta College, where he taught biology, zoology, and environmental science and was active in curriculum and course development. Professor Enger is an advocate for variety in teaching methodology and feels that if students are provided with varied experiences, they are more likely to learn. Professor Enger's classes include writing assignments, student presentation of lecture material, debates by students on controversial issues, field experiences, individual student projects, and discussions of local examples and relevant current events. Professor Enger was a Fulbright Exchange Teacher to Australia and Scotland, received the Bergstein Award for Teaching Excellence and the Scholarly Achievement Award from Delta College, and participated as a volunteer in Earthwatch Research Programs.

Frederick Ross

Frederick C. Ross received his B.S. and M.S. from Wayne State University. He is professor emeritus of biology at Delta College and has 30 years' teaching experience, including junior and senior high school, during which he has taught biology, cell biology and biological chemistry, microbiology, environmental science, and zoology. Professor Ross has been active in curriculum and course development, including the development of courses in infection control and microbiology, AIDS and infectious diseases, and a PBS ScienceLine course for elementary and secondary education majors in cooperation with Central Michigan University. Professor Ross was involved in the development of the wastewater microbiology technician curriculum offered by Delta College and was actively involved in the National Task Force of Two Year College Biologists (American Institute of Biological Sciences) and in the National Science Foundation College Science Improvement Program.
