Comprehensive account on the progress and achievements of evolutionary science, written by the founding father of modern genetic and evolutionary theory.
`There is no better book on evolution. There will never be another book like it. The next best thing to Darwin himself.' Jared Diamond
`[Ernst Mayr is] the world's greatest living evolutionary biologist and a writer of extraordinary insight and clarity.' Stephen Jay Gould
Mayr is one of the influential scientists of the last century. This compact book delivers the wealth of his 70 year career in a single, well measured punch. GLASGOW HERALD "We are taken all the way from Darwin to the frontiers of biology, including ideas on the causes of altruism and the consequences for humans now that natural selection is no longer happening to us."
