  • Schöpfungstheologie und Schöpfungsethik im biotechnologischen Zeitalterby Lukas Ohly

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 98.00

    The opposition between creation and evolution is invalid because humans are creators of new life, such as synthetic life or artifical intelligence. Thus the problem ofhow it is possible that reality arises at all needs a new answer. The phenomenological framework of this volume combines scientific and theological knowledge to offer a new... more...

  • The Runes of Evolutionby Simon Conway Morris

    Templeton Press 2015; US$ 27.99

    How did human beings acquire imaginations that can conjure up untrue possibilities? How did the Universe become self-aware? In The Runes of Evolution , Simon Conway Morris revitalizes the study of evolution from the perspective of convergence, providing us with compelling new evidence to support the mounting scientific view that the history of life... more...

  • The Mysterious World of the Human Genomeby Frank Ryan

    HarperCollins Publishers 2015; Not Available

    How could a relatively simple chemical code give rise to the complexity of a human being? How could our human genome have evolved? And how does it actually work? more...

  • Vulturesby Michael O'Neal Campbell

    CRC Press 2015; US$ 129.95

    This book reexamines current knowledge on the evolution, ecology, and conservation biology of both New World vultures (Cathartidae) and Old World vultures (Accipitridae) and seeks answers to past and present regional extinctions, colorizations, and conservation questions.

  • Ecology and Conservation of North American Sea Ducksby Jean-Pierre L. Savard; Dirk V. Derksen; Dan Esler; John M. Eadie

    CRC Press 2015; US$ 149.95

    The past decade has seen a huge increase in the interest and attention directed toward sea ducks, the Mergini tribe. This has been inspired, in large part, by the conservation concerns associated with numerical declines in several sea duck species and populations, as well as a growing appreciation for their interesting ecological attributes. Reflecting... more...

  • The Strange Case of the Rickety Cossackby Ian Tattersall

    St. Martin's Press 2015; US$ 27.99

    In his new book The Strange Case of the Rickety Cossack, human paleoanthropologist Ian Tattersall argues that a long tradition of "human exceptionalism" in paleoanthropology has distorted the picture of human evolution. Drawing partly on his own career--from young scientist in awe of his elders to crotchety elder statesman--Tattersall offers an... more...

  • Excellent Beautyby Eric Dietrich

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 29.99

    Flipping convention on its head, Eric Dietrich argues that science uncovers awe-inspiring, enduring mysteries, while religion, regarded as the source for such mysteries, is a biological phenomenon. Just like spoken language, Dietrich shows that religion is an evolutionary adaptation. Science is the source of perplexing yet beautiful mysteries, however... more...

  • Living in the Sound of the Windby Jason Wilson

    Little, Brown Book Group 2015; Not Available

    W. H. Hudson was brought up on the pampas, where he learnt from gauchos about frontier life. After moving to London in 1874, Hudson lived in extreme poverty. Like his friend Joseph Conrad, Hudson was an exile, adapting to England. He never returned to Argentina. Wilson unravels Hudson?s English dream, his natural history rambles, and his work... more...
