A new evolution textbook   posted by Razib @ 8/10/2007 10:19:00 AM

Evolution by Doug Futuyma & and Evolution by Mark Ridley are probably two the most common intro texts used by instructors. Well, there's an enormous new textbook out creatively titled Evolution. Here is the important bit from the website:
Evolution, to be published on June 27, 2007, is designed to serve as the primary text for undergraduate courses in evolution. It differs from currently available alternatives in containing more molecular biology than is traditionally the case. But this is not at the expense of traditional evolutionary theory. Indeed, a glance at the Table of Contents and the authors' interests reveals the range of material covered in this book. The authors are world-renowned in population genetics, bacterial genomics, paleontology, human genetics, and developmental biology. The integration of molecular biology and evolutionary biology reflects the current direction of much research among evolutionary scientists. Click here to read more.

The book is being published by Cold Spring Harbor Press.
