A lot of credit and thanks also go to the people who taught me about evolution and helped me with this project.

Marianne Marks, my seventh grade science teacher, taught me about evolution and natural selection, inspired me to make this web site, lent me activities and text books, and looked over and made suggestions on things that I wrote.

Yaneer Bar-Yam, my father, first introduced me to the idea of natural selection and taught me a lot about evolution. He also taught me how to make web sites.

Naomi Bar-Yam, my mother, helped me with the writing and editing, and discussed my ideas for this web site with me.

Yavni Bar-Yam, my brother, gave me suggestions and helped me with pictures, and "worked magic".

Mr. Ron Worman, head of the Permissions Department at McDougal Littell Inc., was very helpful when I wrote to him about permission to use pictures from Life Science.
