About the Author

Stephen Miller

Dr. Miller is senior author of Zoology.  He grew up wading creeks, paddling rivers, and exploring forests of Michigan’s western Lower Peninsula.  His fascination with aquatic ecosystems continued through high school and college.  He earned a B.S. degree from Manchester College in Indiana, an M.A. in Biology from Western Michigan University, and a Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of Wisconsin/Madison.  Dr. Miller spent his career teaching General Zoology--one year in Wisconsin and 34 years teaching General Zoology at College of the Ozarks in Southwest Missouri.  He is the recipient of teaching and professional achievement awards from College of the Ozarks and the Missouri Academy of Sciences.   His students participated in his research, which included investigations of life history, activity patterns, and biogeography of the freshwater amphipod, Gammarus pseudolimnaeus.  He also studied genetic variation within Missouri wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) populations.  Since his retirement from College of the Ozarks in 2012, he has enjoyed continuing work on Zoology, interpreting zoological issues within his local community, sailing, woodworking, and spending time with family.
