Evolution: eBook (12 Month Personal Licence)
In Evolution, students are encouraged to explore the overwhelming evidence for evolutionary change in populations and to critically evaluate hypotheses for the mechanisms by which this change occurs.
A fresh approach to teaching evolutionary principles at this level. Students are encouraged to explore and critically evaluate the wealth of evidence for our current understanding of evolution through a variety of engaging and thought-provoking activities. Beginning with theories for the origin of life, Evolution builds understanding of microevolutionary processes though modeling activities and numerous historical and current case studies. Larger scale evolutionary patterns, including adaptive radiation, convergence and extinction are explained using relevant examples from around the world. The role of humans in evolutionary processes provides the final thought-provoking chapter.
