By MF Teaford, MM Smith, MWJ Ferguson

Advances in genetics, histology, microstructure, biomechanics, and morphometrics have allowed researchers to view the teeth and dental tissue from new views. Written by way of major specialists within the box, this publication brings jointly overviews on quite a lot of dental themes. The participants speak about the newest study linking genes, molecules, and developmental mechanisms inside an evolutionary framework. This ebook will stimulate cooperative examine in fields as different as paleontology, molecular biology, developmental biology, and useful morphology.

Evolutionary Trends

The examine of the background of existence encompasses the origins of species to their loss of life: evolution and extinction. in accordance with experiences of the fossil checklist, this ebook examines the directionality of evolution--so known as evolutionary trends--a basic element of lifestyles heritage that has bought relatively little consciousness in recent years.

The Evolution of Cells (Cells: The Building Blocks of Life)

A few three. eight billion years in the past, in an period of churning seas and murky skies, a couple of chemical compounds mixed less than the suitable stipulations, and lifestyles emerged on planet Earth. From that first cellphone, existence stepped forward to a myriad of one-celled organisms, to organisms able to photosynthesis, to multicellular organisms, to uncomplicated plant and animal varieties, as much as the advanced life-forms we all know this present day.

Handbook on Evolution and Society: Toward an Evolutionary Social Science

Guide on Evolution and Society brings jointly unique chapters by way of favorite students who've been instrumental within the revival of evolutionary theorizing and examine within the social sciences during the last twenty-five years. formerly unpublished essays offer updated, severe surveys of modern study and key debates.
