A new chapter on human evolution highlights recent discoveries—including research that shows early humans did interbreed with Neanderthals. Available Our Retail Price: InQuizitive modules accessible from the Coursepack help struggling students get up to speed on the evolutin foundational concepts in the course— phylogenetics, population, genetics, and analyzing data.

The Second Edition offers a rich variety of resources for in-class discussion or homework assignments. More Books Science Biology. Research topics include a study in which clonal interference rvolution a yeast population was observed using whole-genome sequencing, as well as a paper illustrating genetic hitchhiking by describing a study of within-host evolution of the HIV virus.
Features Contents Thorough and accessible coverage of population genetics and phylogenetics Phylogenetics is introduced early in two separate chapters—Chapters 4 and 5—that teach students how to interpret hypotheses about evolutionary history and compare the relatedness of living organisms, while five complete chapters on population genetics provide djgatkin most thorough and accessible coverage of this foundational topic available in any undergraduate textbook. Experimental details encourage students to visualize both the research study and how the experiment was conducted so that they fully understand the meaning behind the data.
Throughout the Second Edition, stunning visuals—including research-style data graphics and new, enlarged photographs—highlight the amazing diversity of life on Earth. Evolution presents foundational concepts through a contemporary framework of population genetics and phylogenetics that is enriched by current research and stunning art.
Phylogenetics is introduced early in two separate chapters—Chapters 4 evlution 5—that teach students how to interpret hypotheses about evolutionary history and compare the relatedness of living organisms, while five complete chapters on population genetics provide the most thorough and accessible coverage of this foundational topic available in any undergraduate textbook.

Contemporary research examples in every chapter—many of which are drawn from the last years—reinforce foundational concepts. Phylogenetic relationships are made clear through phylogenetic trees in every chapter, many of which include in-figure captions, photographs, and line art that further explain each concept.
Clear explanations of quantitative methods teach students how to formulate questions about evolutionary processes and relationships the same way that researchers do—using the language of quantitative models.
A capstone chapter on evolution and medicine and a full chapter on genome evolution highlight the cutting-edge of research in evolutionary biology. Media Showcase Site Visit the showcase site for Evolution.
