About the Author:

Patrick von Aderkas is a professor in the biology department of the University of Victoria. He has degrees in botany from the University of Guelph and Manchester. His career reflects a broad interest in experimental embryogenesis of ferns and gymnosperms, including hormone physiology, molecular biology, and proteomics (the large-scale study of proteins).

Review:

"Well written, succinct, and appealing to students." --Kathreen Ruckstuhl, University of Calgary

"Making Sense in the Life Sciences focuses considerably on the writing process and the mechanics of writing itself. The assortment of writing tips and 'common pitfalls to avoid' complement the main text and hit upon many of the problems I observe in students' writing. Furthermore, entire chapters devoted to grammar, punctuation, and 'writing with style' are novel elements in a science writing guide and would be a useful resource for such students. Finally, the Canadian references and examples are refreshing, a change that would appeal to the Canadian audience. --G.B. Bourne, University of Calgary
