How can evolution be observed and measured? How can we interpret the fossil record? What are the ethical implications of gene manipulation? With stunning graphics and color photos, the processes and the critical turning points in evolutionary history are identified, from Darwin's theory of natural selection to the cutting edge of DNA and genetic research. Detailed photos of bats catching insects in mid-flight, leaf-cutter ants at work, the inside of a bird's egg, are just a few examples of how "Evolution" illustrates topics in a format students will understand and enjoy using. Features include: 60 articles Full-color design throughout Clear explanations of terms, concepts and processes 300 color photos, illustrations and maps Coverage of current issues and debates Glossary, Bibliography and Index
