Patterns in Evolution Summary


Patterns in Evolution: The New Molecular View by Roger Lewin

Noted science journalist and author Roger Lewin shows readers how the tools of molecular biology are transforming the way in which evolution is viewed. The advent of genetic analysis, sometimes of DNA extracted from remains of creatures that lived thousands of years ago, has enabled scientists to remap the history of life. It has led to important new findings about evolutionary lineages and aspects of modern animal behaviour.
