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.

Instructor registration is required in order for students to access the quizzes.

It can be ordered now and is due to ship on 22 October Introducing Biological Energetics Norman W. These quizzes can be assigned or released for student self-study, at the instructor’s discretion.

The comparative method Classification Summary Permissive conditions and natural selection Complex characteristics Homology and the emergence of novel characters From Microevolution to Macroevolution Rates of evolution Gradualism and punctuated equilibria Speciation and phenotypic evolution Trends, Predictability, and Progress Trends: In general, there is simply too much information of interest from too many perspectives.

Quizzes that cover all the major concepts introduced in each chapter. Kinds and causes Are there major trends in the history of life? In addition, none of these books by themselves provides the breadth of topic coverage or perspective that would be required of a textbook for our course, and each contains a lot of material of interest from a different perspective that is somewhat different from that of this course.

Interactive modules that allow students to explore many of the dynamic processes of evolution, and answer questions based on fuguyma results they observe. 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.

Thus, in this course, we will use literature resources drawn from several different sources. Evolution and Society Box 22A.

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. The literature and resources in Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution are widely scattered. The IRL includes the following resources: Nongenetic Inheritance Summary 5.

Evidence for Evolution Summary 3. Avise does a great job of cataloging and describing methods for measuring and analyzing genetic r.j.2005.evolution, and then r.j.2005.evolution an incredibly in-depth set of examples in which these techniques are used to answer questions about the biology of organisms.


It ends with a brief overview of two major frameworks of statistical analysis: 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 to ecological communities.
