About this product
- DescriptionCelebrating the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species , this celebration of evolutionary development combines beautiful photographs of plants and animals with a clear, concept-based text to express Darwin's greatest discovery to a general audience in a unique and vivid manner. 2009 marks the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species , as well as the bicentennial of Darwin's birth. To commemorate Darwin's greatest discovery, Evidence of Evolution uses exquisite images by distinguished nature photographer Susan Middleton to reveal patterns of evolutionary development in animals and plants. These photographs, of remarkable specimens from the collections of the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, are accompanied by a clear, accessible overview of the key evolutionary concepts that explain life on Earth, by science writer Mary Ellen Hannibal. Virtually a natural history museum in a book, Evidence of Evolution expresses the power and beauty of Darwin's vision.
- Author BiographySusan Middleton is a distinguished nature photographer, whose images moved E.O. Wilson to write, 'their kind of testimony may count as much toward conserving life as all the data and generalizations of science'. She is coauthor of four books on the world's natural heritage. Mary Ellen Hannibal is the author of Leaves & Pods (Abrams). Her writing has appeared in publications such as the San Francisco Chronicle, Esquire and Elle. She is the founder of Evolve 2009.
