Addresses major themes of evolution from genomes to ecological communities. Extensively rewritten and reorganized, this new edition of Evolution –featuring a new coauthor: Mark Kirkpatrick The University of Texas at Austin –offers additional expertise in evolutionary genetics and genomics, the fastest-developing area of evolutionary biology. Directed toward an undergraduate audience, the text emphasizes the interplay between theory and empirical tests of hypotheses, thus acquainting students with the process of science.

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 edifion ecological communities.

For Students Companion Website The EvolutionThird Edition, Companion Website features review and study tools to help students master the material presented in the textbook. Access to the site is free of charge, and requires no access code.


Instructor registration is required in order for students to access the quizzes. The site includes the following resources: Concise overviews of the important topics tuird in each chapter. Expanded for the third edition, these inquiry-based exercises involve students in working with data and analyzing methods and conclusions from published vouglas.

Interactive modules that allow students to explore many of the dynamic processes of evolution, and answer questions based on the results they observe. Quizzes that cover all the major concepts introduced in each chapter. These quizzes are assignable by the instructor. Easy-to-use activities that help students learn all the key terminology introduced in each chapter.

The IRL includes the following resources: 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. 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.

These quizzes can be assigned or released for student self-study, at the instructor’s discretion. Instructors can also add their own questions to the quizzing system, to create custom quizzes. Results can be viewed online or downloaded for use in gradebook programs.
