Description

The Third Edition of the book once described as "simply the best advanced textbook currently available" has increased its scope while emphasizing the new intellectual and molecular perspectives that have transformed evolutionary studies in the last decade. True to its theme, that evolution both draws on and illuminates all the biological sciences, Evolutionary Biology, 3/e is the most comprehensive textbook in its field.
