Kimball’s Biology Pages

Written by: John W. Kimball (Tufts University and Harvard)

He taught biology and chemistry to high school students at Phillips Academy. He also taught biology to Harvard students and immunology to students at Tufts University and Harvard. He has written six editions of his biology textbook and is now making it free for students and educators around the word.

Professor John W. Kimball, emeritus, prefers to study systems as they occur in both plants and animals. His site originally offered the information like something of an online glossary. Students contacted him about making the site more friendly to students conducting self-study. He has added a list of topics to aid students traverse his site as if they were reading a biology textbook.
