A New History of Life by Peter Ward and Joe Kirshvink


(Roger A. Sawtelle) #1

A new book, A new History of Life by Peter Ward and Joe Kirschvink discusses evolution from an ecological point of view.

"Ever since Darwin we have thought of evolution in terms of species. Yet it is the evolution of ecosystems — from deep-ocean vents to rainforest — that has formed the living world as we know it."
Quoted from book jacket.

Detailed exposition of the evidence for “ecological natural selection.”

Roger,
What do you think of this book? I found it to be excellent.

@Patrick

I am glad we agree on this. I found it to be outstanding revision of Darwin’s Theory.

PS, Patrick, please use the @Relates code (as I added above) in your responses to me, It makes things a little simpler.
