Endless forms most beautiful : the new science of evo devo and the making of the animal kingdom by Sean B Carroll( Book )

36 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and Chinese and held by 2,185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An introduction to evolutionary developmental biology demonstrates how the many forms of animals evolved and came into being, documenting how the Evo Devo branch of science proved that all animal organs and appendages, from arms and legs to wings and fins, were created from a small number of primitive genes
The making of the fittest : DNA and the ultimate forensic record of evolution by Sean B Carroll( Book )

26 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 2,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

DNA evidence not only solves crimes--in Sean Carroll's hands it will now end the Evolution Wars. DNA is the genetic material that defines us as individuals. Over the last two decades, it has emerged as a powerful tool for solving crimes and determining guilt & innocence. But, very recently, an important new aspect of DNA has been revealed--it contains a detailed record of evolution. That is, DNA is a living chronicle of how the marvelous creatures that inhabit our planet have adapted to its many environments, from the freezing waters of the Antarctic to the lush canopy of the rain forest. In the pages of this highly readable narrative, Sean Carroll guides the general reader on a tour of the massive DNA record of three billion years of evolution to see how the fittest are made. And what a eye-opening tour it is - one featuring immortal genes, fossil genes, and genes that bear the scars of past battles with horrible diseases. This book clinches the case for evolution, beyond any reasonable doubt

From DNA to diversity : molecular genetics and the evolution of animal design by Sean B Carroll( Book )

43 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 1,164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Animals diverge from common ancestry through changes in their DNA, but what are the genes that control morphology? In this work, the author team led by Dr. Sean Carroll presents the general principles of the genetic basis of morphological change through a synthesis of evolutionary biology with genetics and embryology." "In this extensively revised second edition, the authors delve into the latest discoveries, incorporating new coverage of comparative genomics, molecular evolution of regulatory proteins and elements, and microevolution of animal development. This new edition also includes major insights from recent genome studies, incorporates new findings from evo-devo biology research, and adds a new chapter focusing on models of variation and divergence among closely related species."--Jacket

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explains how we are discovering that complex life is ironically much simpler than anyone ever expected. Perhaps the most surprising finding of evo devo, evolutionary developmental biology, is the discovery that a small number of primitive genes led to the formation of fundamental organs and appendages "in all animal forms."
The day the Mesozoic died( Visual )

The Serengeti rules : the quest to discover how life works and why it matters by Sean B Carroll( )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does life work' How does nature produce the right numbers of zebras and lions on the African savanna, or fish in the ocean' How do our bodies produce the right numbers of cells in our organs and bloodstream' In The Serengeti Rules, award-winning biologist and author Sean B. Carroll tells the stories of the pioneering scientists who sought the answers to such simple yet profoundly important questions, and shows how their discoveries matter for our health and the health of the planet we depend upon. One of the most important revelations about the natural world is that everything is regulated-there are rules that regulate the amount of every molecule in our bodies and rules that govern the numbers of every animal and plant in the wild. And the most surprising revelation about the rules that regulate life at such different scales is that they are remarkably similar-there is a common underlying logic of life. Carroll recounts how our deep knowledge of the rules and logic of the human body has spurred the advent of revolutionary life-saving medicines, and makes the compelling case that it is now time to use the Serengeti Rules to heal our ailing planet
