In the Light of Evolution: Essays from the Laboratory and Field

edited by Jonathan Losos
Greenwood Village (CO): Roberts and Company, 2011. 330 pages.

Reviewer Marvalee H. Wake describes In the Light of Evolution as “a wonderfully rich and diverse collection of essays that illustrate the way evolutionary biologists think and work—how they develop questions and hypotheses about evolution and how it occurs, how they test their hypotheses, why both lab and field work are important to resolution of many questions, and why the answers usually open new questions—and why that is useful for the progress of science. The authors of the essays present a wide range of exploration of several major areas of evolutionary biology, and of research on a great diversity of organisms.”
