Henrich R. Greve is Professor of Entrepreneurship and Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD. He holds a PhD in organizational behavior from the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University, along with an MA in Sociology. Henrich's main research interest is the causes and consequences of strategic change in organizations, but he also studies organizational innovations, and organizational founding and growth in young industries.Professor Edward E. Ruppert attended University of North Carolina for both his undergraduate and graduate education, was a North Carolina Board of Technology Postdoctoral Fellow, Smithsonian Postdoctoral Fellow, Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution Senior…    

New co-author Richard Fox brings to the revision his expertise as an ecologist, which presents a good balance to Ruppert's background as a functional morphologist. Fox's research is with arthropods, the largest group of invertebrates. He contributes a current perspective on this large group, including many changes in species classification based on molecular evolutionary research. Finally, Fox and Ruppert have co-taught several courses, and they have collaborated on two professional titles.
