Born in Houma, LA, JOHN JANOVY, JR, is Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Nebraska — Lincoln, Director of Cedar Point Biological Station, and Interim Director of the University of Nebraska State Museum. He was educated at the University of Oklahoma (BS, MS, PhD) and at Rutgers University (postdoctoral studies). He has published fifty-six papers and eight books, including Keith County Journal (1978), Yellowlegs (1980), and Back in Keith County (1981). In his words, Janovy's work deals with "mixtures of nature, teaching, learning, and to a certain extent, a spiritualism that comes from time spent among the lesser inhabitants of our planet." He writes, he says, "to communicate the biological, scientific information in such a way that the average citizen can understand and appreciate the complexity of Earth."
