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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
- 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...

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...

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...
