The Nature of Science and the Study of Biological Evolution

by NSTA and BSCS
New York: North Star Line, 2005. 132 pages.

The Nature of Science and the Study of Biological Evolution, as its title indicates, adroitly interleaves a discussion of the nature of science with a broad perspective on evolution. Consisting of a text for high school students and a CD–ROM for teachers, the material discusses the nature and methods of science, the development of the theory of evolution, seven lines of evidence that converge on evolution, population genetics, natural selection, and primate and human evolution. Both the text and the CD–ROM are imbued with the pedagogical acumen characteristic of the National Science Teachers Association and the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study.
