How evolution shapes our lives : essays on biology and society by Jonathan B Losos( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" It is easy to think of evolution as something that happened long ago, or that occurs only in "nature," or that is so slow that its ongoing impact is virtually nonexistent when viewed from the perspective of a single human lifetime. But we now know that when natural selection is strong, evolutionary change can be very rapid. In this book, some of the world's leading scientists explore the implications of this reality for human life and society. With some twenty-five essays, this volume provides authoritative yet accessible explorations of why understanding evolution is crucial to human life--from dealing with climate change and ensuring our food supply, health, and economic survival to developing a richer and more accurate comprehension of society, culture, and even what it means to be human itself. Combining new essays with ones revised and updated from the acclaimed Princeton Guide to Evolution, this collection addresses the role of evolution in aging, cognition, cooperation, religion, the media, engineering, computer science, and many other areas. The result is a compelling and important book about how evolution matters to humans today. The contributors include Francisco J. Ayala, Dieter Ebert, Elizabeth Hannon, Richard E. Lenski, Tim Lewens, Jonathan B. Losos, Jacob A. Moorad, Mark Pagel, Robert T. Pennock, Daniel E. L. Promislow, Robert C. Richardson, Alan R. Templeton, and Carl Zimmer."--
The Princeton guide to evolution by Jonathan B Losos( )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Princeton Guide to Evolution is a comprehensive, concise, and authoritative reference to the major subjects and key concepts in evolutionary biology, from genes to mass extinctions. Edited by a distinguished team of evolutionary biologists, with contributions from leading researchers, the guide contains some 100 clear, accurate, and up-to-date articles on the most important topics in seven major areas: phylogenetics and the history of life; selection and adaptation; evolutionary processes; genes, genomes, and phenotypes; speciation and macroevolution; evolution of behavior, society, and humans; and evolution and modern society. Complete with more than 100 illustrations (including eight pages in color), glossaries of key terms, suggestions for further reading on each topic, and an index, this is an essential volume for undergraduate and graduate students, scientists in related fields, and anyone else with a serious interest in evolution. Explains key topics in some 100 concise and authoritative articles written by a team of leading evolutionary biologists Contains more than 100 illustrations, including eight pages in color Each article includes an outline, glossary, bibliography, and cross-references Covers phylogenetics and the history of life; selection and adaptation; evolutionary processes; genes, genomes, and phenotypes; speciation and macroevolution; evolution of behavior, society, and humans; and evolution and modern society

Experimental evolution : 50,000 generations in the life of E. coli by Richard Lenski( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

(CIT): Most evolutionary studies are based either on fossils or patterns of similarity and differences among living organisms. However, evolution is an on-going process, and therefore it can also be studied experimentally in those organisms with short generations. To that end, 12 initially identical populations of E. coli have been maintained in a simple environment since 1988, during which time the cells have undergone more than 50,000 generations. Two goals of this long-term experiment have been to investigate the dynamics of evolutionary change and to examine the reproducibility of outcomes. We have quantified the extent of adaptation by natural selection, documented increasing ecological specialization over time, observed the rise of mutator phenotypes, and even seen the origin of a new function that transcends the usual definition of E. coli as a species. We have pursued genetic approaches to find the underlying mutations responsible for these changes, including several that affect major regulatory networks. We have recently sequenced complete genomes to find all of the mutations present in a temporal series of clones, and these genomic data provide new insights into the coupling of phenotypic and genomic evolution
