Of particular interest is The Extreme Life of the Sea by Stephen R. Palumbi & Anthony R. Palumbi. The ocean teems with life that thrives under difficult situations in unusual environments. This book takes readers to the absolute limits of the ocean world—the fastest and deepest, the hottest and oldest creatures of the oceans. It dives into the icy Arctic and boiling hydrothermal vents—and exposes the eternal darkness of the deepest undersea trenches—to show how marine life thrives against the odds.
Also be sure to note 40 Years of Evolution: Darwin’s Finches on Daphne Major Island by Peter R. Grant & B. Rosemary Grant. In this richly illustrated new book, the authors continuously track finch populations over a period of four decades, and they and uncover the causes and consequences of significant events leading to evolutionary changes in species.
And don’t miss out on The Princeton Guide to Evolution, a comprehensive, concise, and authoritative reference to the major subjects and key concepts in evolutionary biology, from genes to mass extinctions. Edited by a distinguished team of evolutionary biologists, with contributions from leading researchers, the guide contains some 100 clear, accurate, and up-to-date articles on the most important topics in seven major areas: phylogenetics and the history of life; selection and adaptation; evolutionary processes; genes, genomes, and phenotypes; speciation and macroevolution; evolution of behavior, society, and humans; and evolution and modern society.
