9780878933921: Evolution, Second Edition

The complete 2nd Edition is available in a three-hole punched, looseleaf format. Students can take just the sections they need to class and can easily integrate instructor material with the text. In its scope and emphases, Evolution is a readily recognized descendant of the author's previous textbook, Evolutionary Biology. However, it is much shorter and is exclusively directed toward an undergraduate audience. Teachers and students will find the list of important concepts and terms in each chapter a helpful guide, and will appreciate the radically different dynamic figures and lively photographs. The content of all chapters has been updated, and material has been reorganized into new chapters such as "Conflict and Cooperation" and "How To Be Fit." Contributors Scott V. Edwards and John R. True have provided authoritative chapters on "Evolution of Genes and Genomes" and "Development and Evolution," two of the most rapidly developing subjects in evolutionary biology. A new final chapter on "Evolutionary Science, Creationism, and Society" 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
