In the Light of Evolution: Essays from the Laboratory and Field

Edited by Jonathan Losos

Summary: In the Light of Evolution is a collection of essays by leading scientists, including Edmund Brodie III, James Curtsinger, Ted Daeschler, Douglas Emlen, Harry Greene, Luke Harmon, Hopi Hoekstra, Daniel Lieberman, Jonathan Losos, Axel Meyer, Teri J. Orr, Naomi Pierce, David C. Queller, Neil Shubin, David Reznick, Michael Ryan, and Marlene Zuk. The book also includes essays by science writers Carl Zimmer, Andrew Berry, historian Janet Browne, and a foreword by journalist David Quammen. As David Quammen says in his foreword, the book collects “reports from the field, plainspoken descriptions of lifetime obsessions, hard-earned bits of wisdom, and works in progress, pried loose from some of the most interesting, eminent researchers in evolutionary biology….” It is a book “for readers who are fascinated by evolutionary biology and who desire to understand better the day-by-day, speciesby-species, ecosystem-by-ecosystem texture of its practice as a scientific profession.”

The Amazon listing is calling it In the Light of Evolution: Essays from Leading Evolutionary Biologists for whatever reason…
