About this book

Darwin's natural selection was the key to solving generation-to-generation evolution – microevolution – but did not fully explain macroevolution, the transformation of body shapes over millions of years. In this beautifully written book, Carl Zimmer takes the reader from whale graveyards in Egypt to forgotten specimen drawers at Oxford University, embracing cutting-edge research in palaeontology, ecology, genetics and embryology.
