Summary
In less than 500 years science has completely transformed our view of our origins and relationship with the universe. This incisive and though-provoking book introduces some of the most important findings and concepts of evolutionary biology, such as the formation and divergence of species, adaptation, mutation, and natural selection. Brian and Deborah Charlesworth trace the progress of evolutionary thought from the first publications of Darwin and Wallace over 140 years ago, to recent evidence provided by studying evolution at the molecular level. The book ends by showing how evolutionary ideas illuminate some of the hardest questions in modern biology, such as why ageing happens and why some animals behave altruistically
