With all the attention to 'creationism' in the news these days, Jean-Pierre Rogel decided it was time to show how Darwin's concept of natural selection can be seen in everyday situations - from a summer cottage near a lake - with examples taken from familiar species such as loons, salmon and bears.
Moving through modern science, he shows how new discoveries have enabled us to understand life more deeply than in Darwin's time. He focuses in particular on the emerging field of evolutionary developmental biology, called 'evo-devo' for short. By showing embryo genes in action, evo-devo explains how animals are constructed. It also explains the extraordinary diversity of the plant and animal kingdom.
