Ernst Mayr:
What Evolution Is: From Theory to Fact (Science Masters) - Paperback

2002, ISBN: 0753813688

[SR: 486867], Paperback, [EAN: 9780753813683], W&N, W&N, Book, [PU: W&N], 2002-12-05, W&N, What we do and do not know about evolution, by one of the field's pioneering thinkers., Why does evolution give rise to distinct species? Is evolution progressive? In What Evolution Is Ernst Mayr organises his text around commonly asked questions and points of difficulty, making this a resource to refer to, as well as to read. Those who find evolution endlessly engaging, or who find themselves engaged in endless argument with the creationists and nay-sayers among us, would do well to equip themselves with Mayr's well-organised armoury of sense, clarity and detail. Mayr himself is a colourful figure: born in Germany in 1904, he embarked in 1928 on the first bird survey to New Guinea--an adventure that exposed him to tropical diseases, near-drowning in an overturned canoe and some very violent tribal politics. It is a shame, in some ways, that Mayr eschews such promising biographical material, stretching as it does across the entire development and refinement of Darwinian theory in the modern period. But we must respect the fact that Mayr is a teacher, not a writer: and his account of how evolution actually works is a tremendous resource for the interested lay reader. What Evolution Is is not the best introduction to Darwinian theory on the market. That role is better fulfilled by Daniel Dennett with his (at times rather Mosaical) Darwin's Dangerous Idea; or (more flashily, and controversially) by Stephen Jay Gould. Those already entranced by the magic of evolution, however, should definitely knuckle down to Mayr's account of Darwinian theory: its proofs, its details and its implications.--Simon Ings, 69, Children's Books, 4511060031, Annuals, 291767, Comics & Graphic Novels, 291673, Education, 291747, Fiction, 5362070031, Film & TV, 16269351, Growing up & Facts of Life, 291724, Hobbies & Interests, 4511097031, Holidays & Celebrations, 492672, Novelty & Activity Books, 291746, Poetry, 291707, Reference, 4511111031, Religion, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922982, Teaching Aids, 922094, Education, 277912, Biological Sciences, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922170, Evolution, 922474, Animal, 922172, Human, 496536, Psychology, 277912, Biological Sciences, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
