9780878932238: Evolution, Second Edition

Evolution, Second Edition is a comprehensive treatment of contemporary evolutionary biology that is directed toward an undergraduate audience. It addresses major themes including the history of evolution, evolutionary processes, adaptation, and evolution as an explanatory framework at levels of biological organization ranging from genomes to ecological communities. Throughout, the text emphasizes the interplay between theory and empirical tests of hypotheses, thus acquainting students with the process of science. Teachers and students will find the list of important concepts and terms in each chapter a helpful guide, and will appreciate the dynamic figures and lively photographs. The content of all chapters has been updated. Contributors Scott V. Edwards and John R. True have once again provided authoritative chapters on, respectively, Evolution of Genes and Genomes and Evolution and Development, two of the most rapidly developing subjects in evolutionary biology. A final chapter on Evolutionary Science and Creationism treats such topics as the nature of science and the practical applications of evolutionary biology.

Review:

Because it strikes the right balance between breadth and detail, and is conscientiously written with the student in mind, Futuyma s Evolution will resonate in the classroom. --Joel Cracraft, American Museum of Natural History

Doug Futuyma [makes] me want to be an undergraduate again, so that I can dedicate more hours to poring over the pages of his wonderful text. ... it is really a one-stop-shop for up-to-date assessments of what we do and do not know about evolution. ... There is hardly a page of this book lacking in skillfully chosen and crafted imagery. ... there is a carefully selected beauty here of a kind that could serve to inspire and inform students at so many levels, including those of us who are students for life. --Rich Mooi, Integrative and Comparative Biology
