Evolutionary Biology, 2nd Edition: Douglas J. Futuyma: : Books
It seemed to be overly wordy in some sections, but overall pretty good. The author includes a plethora of colorful diagrams, pictures, and graphs to help the reader understand as well as to keep the reader’s attention.
The only thing I didn’t really like was the way the author didn’t have a separate section for human evolution. This is usually what students find the most interesting so it is sprinkled throughout the book in an attempt to make the various sections more interesting. I think this is an ok approach but I think human evolution deserves a dedicated section. Lots of good information and data, plus access to online “ebook” because it is quite heavy to carry around.
I am only on Chapter 4, but I am impressed with pictures and diagrams.
It is the required textbook for a class. Purchased this book for school purposes. Arrived in great condition! I have the 1st edition, too, and like this one even better. Easy first text in evolutionary biology without being simplistic.
