Charles Krebs is Professor of Zoology at the University of British
Columbia in Vancouver and has been teaching for 40 years. He
received his B.S. from the University of Minnesota and earned both
his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia. In
addition to teaching ecology, he has worked extensively on the
population of rodents in Northern Canada, the United States, and
Australia, trying to understand the mechanisms behind population
fluctuations. He has published three ecology textbooks including
Ecology: The Experimental Analysis of Distribution and
Abundance, Fifth Edition and Ecological Methodology, Second
Edition both published by Benjamin Cummings. In his spare time,
Charles can be found drinking fine wines.hors have any!) hiking and
kayaking. He is married and has three cats.
