Pressestimmen

This is one of the best and certainly the most complete and up-to-date evolutionary textbooks in the market. This book has undergone extensive and welcome upgrading in the successive editions, since I have seen the earlier editions. Though it is comprehensive, it is easily followable by the students. The author is well known in the field and that is a big plus point.
 
The pedagogical aids are very good, with chapter opening outlines, summaries and questions, etc. The colour plates are very good, and the associated website is also quite useful. Hence, we are taking this valuable book as additional required reading.-V. Lakshminarayanan
 
"...this book certainly provides a good solid and up-to-date foundation to the subject of Evolution and one that I think students will find easy to use." Nick Colegrave, University of Edinburgh, in Genetic Research, May 2004

Synopsis

Mark Ridley's "Evolution" has become the premier undergraduate text in the study of evolution. Readable and stimulating, yet well-balanced and in-depth, this text tells the story of evolution, from the history of the study to the most recent developments in evolutionary theory. This third edition of this successful textbook features updates and extensive new coverage. The sections on adaptation and diversity have been reorganized for improved clarity and flow, and a completely updated section on the evolution of sex and the inclusion of more plant examples have all helped to shape this new edition. "Evolution" also features strong, balanced coverage of population genetics, and scores of new applied plant and animal examples make this edition even more accessible and engaging.This book provides: Dedicated website - provides an interactive experience of this book, with illustrations downloadable to PowerPoint, and a full supplemental package complementing the book; margin icons - indicate where there is relevant information included in the dedicated website; two new chapters - one on evolutionary genomics and one on evolution and development bring state-of-the-art information to the coverage of evolutionary study; two kinds of boxes - one featuring practical applications and the other related information, supply added depth without interrupting the flow of the text; margin comments - paraphrase and highlight key concepts; and, study and review questions - help students review their understanding at the end of each chapter, while new challenge questions prompt students to synthesize the chapter concepts to reinforce the learning at a deeper level.

Einleitungssatz
When Darwin put forward his theory of evolution by natural selection, he lacked a satisfactory theory of inheritance, and the importance of natural selection was widely doubted until it was shown in the 1920s and 1930s how natural selection could operate with Mendelian inheritance. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

8 von 9 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Dr. Horst Wolfgang Boger am 4. Mai 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
Dieses Lehrbuch gehört zu den meist verwendeten seiner Art. Warum dies so ist, wird sogleich klar, wenn man das Inhaltsverzeichnis oder ein beliebiges Kapitel aufschlägt. Es ist straff organisiert, es ist weder redundant noch übermäßig komprimiert und es zeichnet sich vor allem durch vorbildliche theoretische Argumentationen aus. Ridley kann Probleme theoretisch durchleuchten.

Drei per Zufall ausgewählte Beispiele:

1) Er kann sehr gut plausibel machen, warum es "adaptiv gerichtete Mutationen" ("adaptively directed mutations"), an die offensichtlich Joachim Bauer (Das kooperative Gen: Abschied vom Darwinismus) glaubt, schlechterdings nicht geben kann: Gerichtete Mutationen gleichen nämlich Amerikanern, die im 17. Jahrhundert mit Hieroglyphen, die sie nicht verstehen, ein Handbuch für die Änderung eines Computerprogramms im Jahre 1970 schreiben wollen, von dem sie keinerlei Ahnung haben können. (S. 89; vgl. auch S. 257 f.) (Hieroglyphen können erst seit der Entdeckung des Steins von Rosette im Jahre 1799 entziffert werden.)

2) George C. Williams hat in seinem berühmten Buch Adaptation and Natural Selection: A Critique of Some Current Evolutionary Thought die These vertreten, dass Gene, nicht aber Individuen oder Spezies die Einheiten sind, an denen Natürliche Selektion ansetzt. Er definierte Gen als diejenige Entität, "that which segregates and recombines with appreciable frequency". Der scharfsinnige Ridley sieht sich - auf S.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Jon Richfield(jonr@iafrica.com) am 29. Juni 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have the 1994 edition. It is a textbook, but it was no act of masochism to read it through. This is a compliment to any sizeable textbook, but do not think it reads like a novel. If you skim it, you will be missing a great deal.
I liked the writing, which is clear, pleasant and efficient; no waffle. The book is carefully structured and the aim throughout is to convey the successive themes; there is not much stopping to sniff the flowers. Examples and illustrations are effectively chosen to illuminate specific points. The history of the subject and of views on the subject matter is carefully interwoven with the development of the themes, to give a powerful insight into the respective status of major current schools of thought. The book is exceptional in its dispassionate discussion of rival opinions.
I should have liked a more comprehensive index. Several times when wanting to refer back to points, I was reduced to paging and searching. The CD version must be a real luxury.
Strongly recommended to students, professionals and serious evolutionary dilletants. Creation scientists have no one but themselves to blame if they burn their fingers on it.

Most of us who have a professional or casual interest in evolution and the natural world gain our knowledge from popular articles, books and perhaps the dim recesses of our undergraduate textbook memory. While Dawkins' _The Selfish Gene_ or _Darwin's Dangerous Idea_ by Dennet may lay out the bones and flesh of our modern view of the natural world with wonderous analogies and often beautiful prose it's not until opening this volume that what's missing will be noticed: a sense of history, of excitement, of challenging thought.
Evolution (and its sub-branches) have been controversial, not just on religious terms (the less said about that the better) but in the normal manner of grand scientific theories attempting to explain the world in which we live. The importance of claims, counter-claims and paradigm shifts are hard to grasp without having been present, if not in person then intellecutally. _This_, with joy and a very sensitive editor's pen, is what Mark Ridly (author of the popular undergraduate text _Evolution_) has managed to give us with his selection of seminal papers in the history of evolutionary thought.
The articles, ranging from Darwin through to the present day) are superbly chosen and in many cases hard for students or professionals (let along lay readers) to obtain. An absence of maths from even the most statistical of papers (which still remain cogent) will be welcomed by those not up for weeks of scribbling.
The papers themselves are clear and thoughtful, their importance is always obvious and, through their arrangement, lead the reader on a merry intellectual dance of claim, counter-claim and converging streams of thought.

priceless source for prompting thought 26. August 1998

Reading this book is an intellectual adventure; no summaries of events long past, the papers (and the accompanying short essays by Ridley) give a sense of the issues, how thoughtful the responses and creative the science.
In short - this book make me re-think about what and how we know about evolution. It stimulated my research. Higher praise I cannot give.
May there be many more in this wonderful series.

Excellent review of modern evolutionary thought 24. Juni 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I saw the 2 star review and decided I could not let it sit without challenge. I have just received my Phd in psychology and masters in statistics, and have decided to attempt to make a career out of behavioral genetics and evolutionary genetics. Mark Ridley's book was an absolute inspiration to me when I first read it, and it continues to be a must-have reference. The book is noteworthy because it explains the major debates in evolutionary thought in a balanced yet readable way. For example, Ridley gives an excellent introduction into the fundamental question about what maintains genetic variation in the face of selection, an issue that is given only cursory attention in other books of this kind.
I first read this as an undergraduate, yet it continues to serve as my fundamental reference to evolutionary biology. This is truly a wonderful introduction to evolution.

Great book, a bit pricey 13. Januar 2004
Von Steven M. Vamosi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Ridley does a great job of summarizing the evidence for evolution, highlighting key concepts, and discussing recent research findings. The references cited throughout the book (and nicely listed all together at the end) are a great starting point for a beginning student of evolution. I'm impressed with how many of the cited works were published in 2000 or later. Although written primarily as a textbook for undergraduates in the biological sciences, his clear writing style and insistence on defining all key terms should make it accessible to a much broader audience. For those lecturing on evolution, the Web resources that accompany the text are quite handy, too. If I had one knock against the book (it's the reason for 4, rather than 5, stars), it would be the price: ~ $140 CDN seems a bit steep, and will likely deter many prospective readers.

A shortlist of monumental papers by evolutionary biologists 5. Januar 2007
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This was the main text we used in my evolution course at the University of Missouri - Kansas City. It is a collection of influential papers, each representative of an important discovery or contribution to the development of modern evolutionary thought. As you should expect from any collection of academic papers, some parts are very interesting and exciting while others are painfully boring. A couple personal favorites in this book are the papers "evolutionary explosions and the phylogenetic fuse" and "the spandrels of san marco and the panglossian paradigm." Though, it should be noted that the latter was significantly shortened for this edition. Overall, a great and fascinating collection.
