This best-selling text helps you think like a scientist as you learn about evolution by presenting evolutionary biology as a dynamic, ongoing research effort and organizing discussions around questions. This allows you to better understand how evolution occurs. The authors convey the excitement and logic of evolutionary science by introducing principles through recent and classical studies, and by putting an emphasis on real-world applications of evolutionary science.
The Fifth Edition sees co-author Jon Herron take the lead in streamlining and updating content to reflect key changes in the field. He does this by taking the initiative to do so. The clarity of the design and art program has also been improved thanks to recent updates.
