About the Author
Jerrold H. Zar received his undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences from Northern Illinois University in 1962. He later earned his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in biology and zoology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Then, Zar returned to serve Northern Illinois University for 34 years in a variety of capacities. He joined the faculty at NIU as an Assistant Professor in 1968 and quickly rose through the ranks of Associate and Full-time Professor to become Chair of the Department of Biological Sciences in 1978. He served two terms as Chair of the Department and then, became the Vice-President for Graduate Studies and Research as well as the Dean of the Graduate School. He is a founding member of the Illinois Minority Graduate Incentive Program and the Illinois Consortium for Educational Opportunities Program where he helped create and protect fellowship opportunities for minority graduate students at NIU and across the state. Zar is a member of 17 professional scientific societies, including the highly regarded American Association for the Advancement of Science. His fields of interests include statistical analysis of biological data and the physiological adaptations of animals to their environment.
