  • The Implicit Genomeby Lynn Helena Caporale

    Oxford University Press 2006; US$ 59.99

    Discusses three interconnected themes: information can be implied, rather than explicit, in a genome; information can lead to focused and/or regulated changes in nucleotide sequences; and information that affects the probability of distinct classes of mutation has implications for evolutionary theory. more...

    Energy: Engine of Evolution is a compelling book that provides a compact history of energy over the last four billion years, with the aim of creating a sound basis to understanding the possible futures of the energy industry. It describes the role that energy has played in the evolution of nature and culture, the impact it has had on the world over... more...

  • Evolutionby Scientific American

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 18.00

    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 time to step back and ask:... more...

  • Why Evolution Is Trueby Jerry A. Coyne

    Penguin Publishing Group 2009; US$ 17.00

    "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...

  • On the Origin of Speciesby Charles Darwin

    Oxford University Press, UK 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. - ;'can... more...

  • Darwinian Populations and Natural Selectionby Peter Godfrey-Smith

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 31.99

    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...

  • Computational Molecular Evolutionby Ziheng Yang

    Oxford University Press, UK 2006; US$ 74.99

    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...

  • The Timetree of Lifeby S. Blair Hedges; Sudhir Kumar

    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...

  • 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...
