The Natural History Reader in Evolution

Niles Eldredge (editor)

Columbia University Press 1987
A book review by Danny Yee © 1992
This is a selection of articles from the magazine Natural History, all focused on evolution. Most of the essays are discussions of particular species or taxa and their evolution; this is not the place to look for essays on the foundations of evolutionary theory. Topics covered include speciation, extinction, variation, construction of histories, and the creationism debate. The essays average around six pages in length — just the right size for a short bus trip or that final late night fix.

May 1992
