Summary
  • "Encyclopedia of Evolution is an essential reference for high school and college students that spans modern evolutionary science and the history of its development. This volume meets the needs of schools and colleges across the country for concise explanations of evolutionary concepts that have in some cases proven controversial. Comprehensive coverage includes material that discusses many misconceptions about evolution, including whether the process of evolution has been observed; biological evidence from DNA that may confirm evolution; and whether any "missing link" has ever been found. Written in an easy-to-understand format, the encyclopedia is an unbiased examination of the impact that evolutionary science has on contemporary life."
  • "Featuring more than 200 cross-referenced entries, the encyclopedia also includes five essays, interspersed throughout the text, that explore ethical issues related to evolutionary science, in addition to biographies of modern evolutionary scientists who have had or continue to have a major impact on evolutionary science. The encyclopedia concludes with the author's summary of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species - a foundational work of evolutionary science - as a way to make the original book's messages accessible to readers, a bibliography of print and Web resources, and an extensive index." "Encyclopedia of Evolution is an indispensable resource that will meet the specific demands of students, interested laypeople, and professionals who need accurate and straightforward information on evolutionary science." -- BOOK JACKET
