CORRECTION In the Fall 2020 issue of True North , in the note announcing the publication of the textbook Environmental Biology by Jodie Ramsay and Julie Schroer, the name of Ms. Schroer was misspelled, and the layout failed to communicate unambiguously the fact that Ms. Schroer was the co-author of the book. We apologize for those errors.
