Evolution de Mark Ridley (editor)

Tiene una pinta muy interesante este libro, lleno de artículos sobre evolución de gente como J. B. S. Haldane, R. C. Lewontin, E. Mayr, G. G. Simpson, Richard Dawkins, J. Maynard Smith, Steven Pinker o Theodosius Dobzahnsky.

Can we trace the origin of life? How important is the theory of natural selection? Why did we start talking? Is there an evolutionary argument for the existence of God? This exciting and unique Reader presents a wide spectrum of views and issues involved in the ever expanding debates about evolution. It includes extracts which look at the roles of mutations, inbreeding, crossbreeding, and gene selection; the puzzle of sex; the evolutionary consequences of being a plant, and the means of measuring time by using molecular clocks. With articles by Darwin, Fisher, Haldane, Dawkins, Gould, and Medawar amongst others, this Oxford Reader offers a combination of classic accounts and modern research which will appeal both to students and a broad general audience.
