About this product
- DescriptionFor all the discussion in the media about creationism and 'Intelligent Design', virtually thing has been said about the evidence in question - the evidence for evolution by natural selection. Yet, as this succinct and important book shows, that evidence is vast, varied, and magnificent, and drawn from many disparate fields of science. The very latest research is uncovering a stream of evidence revealing evolution in action - from the actual observation of a species splitting into two, to new fossil discoveries, to the deciphering of the evidence stored in our geme. Why Evolution is True weaves together the many threads of modern work in genetics, palaeontology, geology, molecular biology, anatomy, and development to demonstrate the 'indelible stamp' of the processes first proposed by Darwin. It is a crisp, lucid, and accessible statement that will leave one with an open mind in any doubt about the truth of evolution.
- Author BiographyJerry A. Coyne is Professor of Ecology & Evolution at the University of Chicago, where he specializes in evolutionary genetics. One of the world's leading evolutionary biologists, his textbook Speciation (2004, co-written with Allen Orr ) has become the standard reference work on speciation. An influential commentator in the evolution-creationism debate through book reviews, popular and technical articles, and public lectures, Coyne is frequently asked to comment issues of creationism by journalists and broadcasters and has appeared on radio and television shows debating creationists. In 2007 he was elected to The American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
