Arguing for Evolution: An Encyclopedia for Understanding Science

by Sehoya Cotner and Randy Moore
Santa Barbara (CA): ABC-Clio, 2011. 318 pages. Arguing for Evolution

Arguing for Evolution is the latest addition to an increasing number of books written to provide a view of contemporary evolutionary biology for the educated layperson … organized around chapters covering the scientific status of evolution, the age of the earth, fossils, biogeography, molecular and anatomical evidence of evolution, behavior, coevolution, and human evolution,” explains reviewer Erik Scully. Noting a few errors of fact and omission, Scully hopes “the book will be successful enough to justify another edition where examples can be updated or replaced with new research that further supports and illustrates our knowledge of the evolutionary process.”
