About this book

Please note, the 5th edition is available.

Building on the strengths of the first edition, this undergraduate textbook continues to present evolution as a process, emphasizing the interplay between theory, observation, testing, and interpretation. By presenting principles through recent and classical studies and by emphasizing real-world applications it conveys the excitement and logic of evolutionary science. Among the new additions are expanded and improved coverage of population genetics and a reorganized phylogenetic coverage.
