Evolutionary science is one of the great breakthroughs of modern science. Perhaps more than any other area of science, it has caused us all to question where we come from and therefore what we are and how we relate to the rest of the universe. Containing more than 200 entries, Encyclopedia of Evolution spans modern evolutionary science and the history of its development, clarifying many common misconceptions about this area of study. The biographies chosen reflect the viewpoints of scientists working within the United States, and the appendix consists of a summary of Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species, widely considered to be one of the most important books in human history. The five essays include: How much do genes control human behavior? What are the ghosts of evolution? Can an evolutionary scientist be religious? Why do humans die? Are humans alone in the universe?
