Biography

John Alcock is a Regents' Professor of Zoology at Arizona State University, USA. He received his Ph.D. from Harvard University, USA under the direction of Ernst Mayr. His research deals with the behavioural ecology of insect mating systems, with projects that have taken him from Arizona to Costa Rica and Australia. He co-authored The Evolution of Insect Mating Systems (1983) with Randy Thornhill and has also written six other books on animal behaviour and natural history for general audiences. One of these, In a Desert Garden, received the Burroughs' Award for natural history writing in 1998; another book, The Triumph of Sociobiology, was published in 2001. Dr. Alcock also received the Dean's Quality Teaching Award the first year it was given at Arizona State University, USA.
