  • On the Origin of Speciesby Charles Darwin; Gillian Beer

    OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 8.99

    In the Origin of Species (1859) Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. The present edition provides a detailed discussion of his theories and adds an account of the responses of readers to the book on first publication. These cast light on recent controversies, such as questions of design and descent. more...

  • Experimental Evolutionby Theodore Garland; Michael R. Rose

    University of California Press 2009; US$ 55.00

    Experimental approaches to evolution provide indisputable evidence of evolution by directly observing the process at work. Experimental evolution deliberately duplicates evolutionary processes—forcing life histories to evolve, producing adaptations to stressful environmental conditions, and generating lineage splitting to create incipient species.... more...

  • Making Sense of Evolutionby Massimo Pigliucci; Jonathan Kaplan

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 30.00

    Making Sense of Evolution explores contemporary evolutionary biology, focusing on the elements of theories—selection, adaptation, and species—that are complex and open to multiple possible interpretations, many of which are incompatible with one another and with other accepted practices in the discipline. Particular experimental methods, for example,... more...

  • The Coevolutionary Processby John N. Thompson

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 30.00

    Traditional ecological approaches to species evolution have frequently studied too few species, relatively small areas, and relatively short time spans. In The Coevolutionary Process, John N. Thompson advances a new conceptual approach to the evolution of species interactions—the geographic mosaic theory of coevolution. Thompson demonstrates how... more...

  • Evolution and Creationism: A Documentary and Reference Guideby Christian Young; Mark Largent

    ABC-CLIO 2007; US$ 94.00

    As recently seen by the Kitzmiller vs. Dover case, the evolution versus creation debate never goes away. The best way to understand these debates is to read the arguments of the individuals involved. This reference work provides over 40 of the most important documents to help readers understand the debate in the eyes of the people of the time. Each... more...

  • The Evolution Controversyby Thomas B. Fowler; Daniel Kuebler

    Baker Publishing Group 2007; US$ 30.00

    Provides a balanced and critical examination of the four major schools of thought in the evolution debate: Neo-Darwinism, Creationism, Intelligent Design, and Meta-Darwinism. more...

  • Evolutionary Restraintsby Mark E. Borrello

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 25.00

      Much of the evolutionary debate since Darwin has focused on the level at which natural selection occurs. Most biologists acknowledge multiple levels of selection—from the gene to the species. The debate about group selection, however, is the focus of Mark E. Borrello’s Evolutionary Restraints .            ... more...

  • Elachistine Moths of Australiaby Lauri Kaila

    CSIRO Publishing 2011; US$ 150.00

    The first reference to describe the so-far unknown diversity of Elachistine moths in Australia. more...

  • Selectionby Graham Bell

    OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 74.99

    This book adopts a direct experimental approach to evolutionary questions, drawing predominantly from research on microbial systems. The focus is on processes and mechanisms, and incorporates insights from recent advances in whole-genome sequencing, bioinformatics, environmental genomics and developmental genetics. more...

  • Arguing for Evolution: An Encyclopedia for Understanding Scienceby Sehoya Cotner; Randy Moore

    ABC-CLIO 2011; US$ 94.00

    Arguing for Evolution: An Encyclopedia for Understanding Science provides readers with a single source for the scientific evidence supporting evolution. The book shows how scientists have tested the predictions of evolutionary theory and created an unshakeable foundation of evidence supporting its truth. As such, it demonstrates how evolution serves... more...
