Evolution For Dummies (Math & Science)

Buy
Today, most colleges and universities offer evolutionary study as part of their biology curriculums. Evolution For Dummies will track a class in which evolution is taught and give an objective scientific view of the subject. This balanced guide explores the history and future of evolution, explaining the concepts and science behind it, offering case studies that support it, and comparing evolution with rival theories of creation, such as intelligent design. It also will identify the signs of evolution in the world around us and explain how this theory affects our everyday lives and the future to come.

Fascinating case studies highlight evolutionary research in the lab and in the wild

From Darwin to DNA — your objective guide to the key concepts of evolution

Want to get a clear understanding of evolution? This plain-English guide explains what evolution is, how it works, and the ways it affects your life. You'll see how evolution impacts everything from body shape to behavior to choosing a mate, ways we can trace the past evolutionary history of species, and how humans continue to evolve.

Discover:

  • What natural selection is and how it works

  • The evolutionary history of modern humans

  • The evolution of viruses and scientists' fight against them

  • The role of genetics in the evolution of species

Theory of Tokamak Transport: New Aspects for Nuclear Fusion Reactor Design
Theory of Tokamak Transport: New Aspects for Nuclear Fusion Reactor Design
In this new approach for a consistent transport theory in nuclear fusion processes Leslie Woods draws on over 40 years of fusion research to directly compare theoretical findings with experimental results, while taking into account recently discovered phenomena. This is thus the first book to find theoretical explanations to the sometimes-puzzling...
Creating Components
Creating Components
This text describes how concurrency works, how to more effectively deploy it in program components, and how to reuse these components to improve program design, quality, and performance.

Concurrency is a powerful technique for developing efficient and lightning- fast software. For instance, concurrency can be used in common applications...
