  • Rapidly Evolving Genes and Genetic Systemsby Rama S. Singh; Jianping Xu; Rob J. Kulathinal

    Oxford University Press 2012; US$ 72.99

    Ever since the pioneering work of Darwin and Wallace, evolutionary biologists have attempted to understand the evolutionary dynamics of genetic systems. A range of theories on evolutionary ratesfrom static to gradual to punctuated to quantumhave been developed, primarily by comparing morphological changes over geological timescales as described in... more...

  • The Extended Phenotypeby Richard Dawkins; Daniel Dennett

    Oxford University Press 1999; US$ 17.99

    By the best selling author of The Selfish Gene 'This entertaining and thought-provoking book is an excellent illustration of why the study of evolution is in such an exciting ferment these days.'

  • The Hologenome Conceptby Eugene Rosenberg; Ilana Zilber-Rosenberg

    Springer 2014; US$ 189.00

    Groundbreaking research over the last 10 years has given rise to the hologenome concept of evolution. This concept posits that the holobiont (host plus all of its associated microorganisms) and its hologenome (sum of the genetic information of the host and its symbiotic microorganisms), acting in concert, function as a unique biological entity and... more...

  • Unveiling Man's Origins (Routledge Revivals)by L. S. B. Leakey; Vanne Morris Goodall

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 49.95

    Originally published in 1969, the aim of this book is to tell the story of the major discoveries which have been made and the attitude of the world at large to these discoveries during the ten decades since Darwin published On the Origin of Species in 1859. For anyone interested in man's past and in understanding the significance of each new discovery... more...

  • Experimental Evolutionby Theodore Garland; Michael R. Rose

    University of California Press 2009; US$ 52.95

    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...

  • Life's Solutionby Simon Conway Morris

    Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 24.00

    The eminent evolutionary palaeobiologist Simon Conway Morris challenges the accepted view that if the tape of life were wound back, the replay would be very different. He also asks: are we alone? more...

  • Nature's Magicby Peter Corning

    Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 34.00

    A wonderfully written 2003 account of how synergy has influenced evolution, human society, and technology. more...

  • Evolutionby Brian Charlesworth

    Oxford University Press 2003; US$ 9.99

    This title is about the role of evolutionary biology in transforming our view of human origins and relation to the universe, and the impact of this idea on traditional philosophy and religion. It explains important basic findings and procedures in the area, and how it has developed since the publications of Darwin and Wallace 150 years ago. more...

  • Natural Selectionby George C. Williams

    Oxford University Press 1992; US$ 79.99

    In this work, George C. Williams--one of evolutionary biology's most distinguished scholars--examines the mechanisms and meaning of natural selection in evolution. Williams offers his own perspective on modern evolutionary theory, including discussions of the gene as the unit of selection, clade selection and macroevolution, diversity within and among... more...

  • Phylogenetic Analysis of DNA Sequencesby Michael M. Miyamoto; Joel Cracraft

    Oxford University Press 1991; US$ 209.99

    With increasing frequency, systematic and evolutionary biologists have turned to the techniques of molecular biology to complement their traditional morphological and anatomical approaches to questions of the historical relationship and descent among groups of animals and plants. In particular, the comparative analysis of DNA sequences is becoming... more...
