  • Eternal Ephemeraby Niles Eldredge

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 34.99

    One of evolution?s fundamental questions is how the skein of life on Earth remains unbroken yet is constantly renewed by new species.

In this riveting work, renowned scientist Niles Eldredge... more...

  • Playing the Genetic Hand Life Dealt Youby Craig Hassed

    Michelle Anderson Publishing 2015; US$ 15.95

    Genetics, the very blueprint of life on Earth, is constantly adapting and re-expressing itself in an ongoing interplay with the environment, mind and consciousness. The old way of looking at genetics was that we just got dealt a genetic hand by nature and we were either lucky or unlucky in what we got dealt. We are now coming to understand that this... more...

    transcript 2014; US$ 35.18

    Von den wissenschaftlichen Weltanschauungen des 19. Jahrhunderts ist im frühen 21. Jahrhundert einzig der Darwinismus noch populär und expansiv.

  • The Arrival of the Fittestby Andreas Wagner

    Oneworld Publications 2014; US$ 32.10

    We all know about natural selection and the so-called survival of the fittest, which governs how evolution preserves useful adaptations in each subsequent generation of a species. Unfortunately, random change alone could not have produced life as we know it – the maths don't add up, according to cutting-edge research by Andreas Wagner in the revolutionary... more...

  • Morphodynamicsby Adolf Seilacher; Alan D. Gishlick

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 99.95

    Morphodynamics is defined as the unique interaction among environment, functional morphology, developmental constraints, phylogeny, and time?all of which shape the evolution of life. These fabricational patterns and similarities owe their regularity not to a detailed genetic program, but to extrinsic factors, which may be mechanical, chemical, or... more...

  • Darwin's Diceby Curtis Johnson

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 19.99

    For evolutionary biologists, the concept of chance has always played a significant role in the formation of evolutionary theory. As far back as Greek antiquity, chance and "luck" were understood to be key factors in the evolution of the natural world. Emphasizing chance is an entire way of thinking about nature, and it is also one of the... more...
