Presents a history of the past two centuries of biology, and covers the early evolutionary biologists such as Lamarck, Cuvier, Darwin, Wallace etc, through Mayr and the neo-Darwinian synthesis. What is novel about Sapp's account is a real integration of the cytological tradition, from Schwann, Boveri, and the other early cell biologists and embryologists, and the coverage of symbiosis, microbial evolutionary phylogenies, and the new understanding of the diversification of life coming from comparative analyses of complete microbial genomes.
This volume is a highly readable, broad, and deep introduction to the history of the theories of evolution ... Sapp provides incisive details of all the major advances and controversies, be it in evolution, cell or molecular biology, genetics, microbiology, ontogeny, or symbiosis. Plant Systematics and Evolution No doubt that biology and history of science students and teachers, as well as a well-read general audience, will enjoy reading this captivating book.
