Introduction to Biological Evolution - 2nd edition

Introduction to Biological Evolution (ISBN10: 0073050776; ISBN13: 9780073050775)
ISBN13: 978-0073050775
ISBN10: 0073050776

Summary: Written for a general college audience, this book offers an introduction to the principles and significance of Darwinian evolution. It differs from most other textbooks on evolution in three fundamental ways: First, it is intended for students taking evolution early in their studies. Second, it examines the intellectual significance of Darwinian evolution. Third, the text departs from the standard treatment of evolution in other textbooks, wherein the arguments are redu ...show morectionist, molecular, and overwhelmingly genetic in emphasis.

New Features

  • New Chapter 17: This new short concluding chapter takes advantage of the collective case made throughout the book and focuses on current issues facing students--the threat of epidemics and a critique of "intelligent design".
  • Organization. Major sections (e.g. hot and cold blooded dinosaurs) have been re-deployed to chapters where they more logically fit and enhance the theme of that chapter.
  • Revisions. Although each chapter was revised for currency, special effort was made to update chapters of central importance (e.g. selection) or special interest (e.g. chapters on hominid evolution).
  • New Material. A short section on population genetics has been added (chapter 3), as well as sections on ''What is life?'' (chapter 4), ''Darwin's'' pigeons (chapter 7), ring species (chapter 9), and on cultural and social evolution in hominids (chapters 14 and 15).
  • New and revised figures can be found throughout the text, many figures have been replaced, and many new ones added.
