Why Evolution is True

Jerry A. Coyne

Oxford Landmark Science

  • While other books describe the concept and the processes by which evolution proceeds, Why Evolution is True presents the evidence: using modern science to demonstrate the 'indelible stamp' of the process first proposed by Darwin.
  • Allows the reader to understand all the evidence, drawn from diverse areas of modern science, which supports Darwinian evolution.
  • Presents the very latest research from the fields of genetics, palaeontology, geology, molecular biology, anatomy, and development.
  • Written by one of the world's foremost evolutionary biologists
  • Besides examining the evidence, the book dispels common misunderstandings about what evolution is: whether it is a fact or 'only' a theory, and what its implications are for human culture and for our sense of purpose and meaning.
