The literature and resources in Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution are widely scattered. The Currency of Selection Positive Selection: All the figures including photographs and tables from the textbook are provided as JPEGs both high- and low-resolutionreformatted and relabeled for optimal readability when projected. Is It Fact or Theory? It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.

Futuyma and Mark Kirkpatrick Sinauer Associates is an imprint of Oxford University Press Extensively rewritten and reorganized, this new edition of Evolution –featuring a new coauthor: This is the second edition of a book that remains one of my all-time favorites. Introducing Biological Energetics Norman W. Extensively rewritten and reorganized, this new edition of Evolution –featuring a new coauthor: Easy-to-use activities that help students learn all the key terminology introduced in each chapter.

It addresses major themes–including the history of evolution, evolutionary processes, adaptation, and evolution as an explanatory framework–at levels of biological organization ranging from genomes to ecological communities.

Populations that change in size Drift and Genetic Variation within Species Estimating population size Genetic Drift and Natural Selection Crossing an adaptive valley by drift The fate of beneficial mutations in large populations The Evolution of Differences among Species The neutral theory of molecular evolution Searching the Genes for Signatures of Adaptation Synonymous versus nonsynonymous differences The MK test Divergence among populations Summary 8.

An avid naturalist, his major research interests include evolution of interactions among insects and plants, speciation, and evolution of community structure. Evolution Fourth Edition Douglas J. Avise does a great job of cataloging and describing methods for measuring and analyzing genetic variation, and then provides an incredibly in-depth set of examples in which these techniques are used to answer questions about the biology of organisms.


For each chapter, all of the chapter’s figures and tables are provided in a ready-to-use PowerPoint presentation, making it easy to quickly insert figures into your own lecture presentations.

Kirkpatrick’s research interests are in evolutionary genetics.

In addition, none of these books by themselves provides the breadth of topic coverage or perspective that would be required of a textbook for our course, and each contains a lot of material of interest from a different perspective that is somewhat different from that of this course.

Thus, in this course, we will use literature resources drawn from several different sources. A broad and flexible concept Practical applications of evolutionary science Using organisms’ adaptations Agriculture and natural resources Conservation Box 22B.
