We are living today in a genuinely frightening scenario religion and science are engaged in a kind of war a war for understanding a war about whether we should have good reasons for what we accept as true The sheer fact that over half of Americans don t believe in evolution to say nothing of the number of Congressmen who don t believe in climate change and the resurgence of religious prejudices and strictures as factors in politics education medicine and social policy make the need for this book urgent br br Religion and science compete in many ways to describe reality they both make existence claims about what is real but they use different tools to meet this goal In his elegant provocative and direct argument leading evolutionary biologist and bestselling author Jerry Coyne lays out in clear patient dispassionate details why the toolkit of science based on reason and empirical study is reliable while that of religion including faith dogma and revelation is unreliable and leads to incorrect untestable or conflicting conclusions Indeed by relying on faith religion renders itself incapable of finding truth, Over the last two decades the study of speciation has expanded from a modest backwater of evolutionary biology into a large and vigorous discipline Thus the literature on speciation as well as the number of researchers and students working in this area has grown explosively Despite these developments there has been no book length treatment of speciation in many years As a result both the seasoned scholar and the newcomer to evolutionary biology had no ready guide to the recent literature on speciation a body of work that is enormous scattered and increasingly technical Although several excellent symposium volumes have recently appeared these collections do not provide a unified critical and up to date overview of the field Speciation is designed to fill this gap Aimed at professional biologists graduate students and advanced undergraduates Speciation covers both plants and animals the first book on this subject to do so and deals with all relevant areas of research including biogeography field work systematics theory and genetic and molecular studies It gives special emphasis to topics that are either controversial or the subject of active research including sympatric speciation reinforcement the role of hybridization in speciation the search for genes causing reproductive isolation and mounting evidence for the role of natural and sexual selection in the origin of species The authors do not hesitate to take stands on these and other controversial issues This critical and scholarly book will be invaluable to researchers in evolutionary biology and is also ideal for a graduate level course on speciation, No description available, No one would think of writing a book today on the evidence for atoms or for the Earth going round the Sun So why when evolution is being reconfirmed every day and forms the backbone of modern biology do we need a book entitled Why Evolution Is True Because evolution is different No other area of science has been the subject of such angst such misunderstanding or such deliberate misinformation Evolution brings us face to face with who we are and how intimately we are connected to every animal plant and bacterium and to the millions of generations of living things that have gone before Yet too often the mention of evolution produces anxiety and confusion Jerry Coyne outlines what evolution is and the claims it makes and draws together the astonishing range of modern evidence supporting it This book shows why evolution is not only a theory but a fact a fact that we should embrace without fear
