  • 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...

  • Freaks of Natureby Mark S. Blumberg

    Oxford University Press, UK 2009; US$ 24.38

    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...

  • 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$ 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...

  • 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,... 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... more...

  • Evolution and Creationismby Christian C. Young; Mark A. Largent

    ABC-CLIO 2007; US$ 85.00

    Provides a one-stop reference for understanding the most important primary documents in the Evolution-Creation debates more...

    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...

  • Evolution in Actionby Matthias Glaubrecht

    Springer 2010; US$ 279.00

    We have come a long way towards better understanding how new species originate, i.e. speciation, which long remained Darwin's 'mystery of mysteries'. Since speciation is the underlying mechanism for radiations, it is the ultimate causation for the biological diversity of life that surrounds us. Without a doubt, Charles Darwin's contribution... more...
