- Springer 2004; US$ 169.00
Combines two complementary approaches to address the question of the development of the Genetic Code. This volume provides a general reference for the academic audience interested in evolution and, simultaneously, consolidates our detailed knowledge on the biological characteristics of the components of the genetic code. more...

Every biological system is the outcome of its evolution; therefore, the deciphering of its evolutionary history is of tremendous importance to understand the biology of a system. Since 1997 scientists of different disciplines have held an annual "Evolutionary Biology Meeting" at Marseille (France) in order to discuss their research developments,... more...

From the Scopes “Monkey Trial” of 1925 to the court ruling against the Dover Area School Board’s proposed intelligent design curriculum in 2005, few scientific topics have engendered as much controversy—or grabbed as many headlines—as evolution. And since the debate shows no signs of abating, there is perhaps no better... more...

"Coyne's knowledge of evolutionary biology is prodigious, his deployment of it as masterful as his touch is light." -Richard Dawkins In the current debate about creationism and intelligent design, there is an element of the controversy that is rarely mentioned-the evidence. Yet the proof of evolution by natural selection is vast, varied, and... more...

From two-legged goats and double-headed snakes, to 'Cyclops' infants with a single eye in the middle of their forehead, Mark S. Blumberg looks at 'freak' bodily anomalies in both humans and other animals to reveal how such deformities provide valuable windows on the intimate connections between genetics, evolution, development, and... more...

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. - ;'can... more...
- Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 26.99
The book presents a new way of understanding Darwinism and evolution by natural selection, combining work in biology, philosophy, and other fields. It gives new criticisms of gene-centered views of evolution, and presents a new framework for understanding the evolution of complex organisms and societies. - ;In 1859 Darwin described a deceptively simple... more...
- Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 199.99
This is a comprehensive reference source on the evolution of life, especially the family tree of organisms and when they originated in time. More than 100 experts on different organisms have distilled the latest research on the evolution of life, primarily from analyses of gene sequences but also from the fossil record. - ;The evolutionary history... more...

This book describes the models, methods and algorithms that are most useful for analysing the ever-increasing supply of molecular sequence data, with a view to furthering our understanding of the evolution of genes and genomes. - ;The field of molecular evolution has experienced explosive growth in recent years due to the rapid accumulation of genetic... more...
- 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,... more...
