Evolution: The Triumph of an Idea [Hardcover] by Zimmer, Carl, Carl Zimmer
11 Carl Zimmer Evolution: The Triumph of an Idea [Hardcover] by Zimmer, Carl
HarperCollins 2001-09-01 0060199067 / 9780060199067 First Edition Hardcover Collectible: Like New Like New Hardcover 
First edition with full number line. Corners bumped. Inside pages clean. This dazzling companion volume to one the most important series in PBS history tells the compelling story of the theory of evolution from Darwin to twenty-first-century science.Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species was breathtaking, beautifully written, staunchly defended, defiantly radical. Yet it emerged long before paleontologists and geologists worked out the chronology of life on Earth, long before biologists uncovered the molecules that underlie heredity and natural selection. Not until the late twentieth century was the true scope of its power revealed.This remarkable new book, featuring more than 150 color illustrations, presents a rich and up-to-date view of evolution that explores the far-reaching implications of Darwin's theory and emphasizes the power, significance, and relevance of evolution to our lives today. After all, we ourselves are the product of evolution, and we can tackle many of our gravest challenges, from the lethal resurgence of antibiotic-resistant diseases to the wave of extinctions that looms before us, with a sound understanding of the science. It can help us see our lives in connection to everything that has come before and to every form of life on Earth today.Filled with rich narrative, award-winning science writing, and the most up-to-date information on topics ranging from Darwinian medicine and sexual selection to the origins of language, evolutionary psychology, and the controversies surrounding creationism, Evolution tells in riveting detail the story of a remarkable scientific journey, from the emergence to the triumph of an idea.

At-a-glance icons convey key information about each animal, including size, taxonomy, geological period of origin, and geographical location of discovered bones. The book also presents general background information on the 180 million years of the dinosaur-dominated Mesozoic era, including details on Mesozoic plants and animals and the modern story of dinosaur discovery. More than 500 vivid illustrations are all in full color.
