提要:
Genome mapping has revealed that the human and chimpanzee genetic codes differ by a mere 1.6%. But whilst a fierce international race is on to identify this crucial handful of genes, the key question is this: what does that 1.6% difference really mean? And is that the only, or even the right way to measure difference? In this book, Jeremy Taylor explains the latest findings, and shows that the effect of that small  再读一些...

Not so fast on the chimps-are-human-too hypothesis

评论者是 vleighton (公布的WorldCat用户 2013-08-05) 很好 Permalink

  This book has two main divisions with an overarching theme, so it is a little confusing. Both support the overall thesis, which is: chimps may be the closest living relatives to humans, but humans are still very different from them physiologically and behaviorally. I give the book four stars...

In this book, Jeremy Taylor explains the latest findings, and shows that the effect of that small difference is vastly greater than many have imagined. Sentimental over-attachment to our primate cousins, he argues, is seriously misleading, and could lead to grossly wrong conclusions."@en
