    "The theory of evolution is one of the basic foundations of modern science. It shows that plants and animals can change over time. The changes are usually small and difficult to detect, but they add up over many generations and can result in new species. Charles Darwin, the father of evolutionary biology, wasn't the first person to come up with the idea of evolution.

    Written By: Human evolution, the process by which human beings developed on Earth from now-extinct primates. Viewed zoologically, we humans are Homo sapiens, a culture-bearing upright-walking species that lives on the ground and very likely first . The geological history of Earth follows the major events in Earth's past based on the geological time scale, a system of chronological measurement based on the study of the planet's rock layers (stratigraphy).Earth formed about billion years ago by accretion from the solar nebula, a disk-shaped mass of dust and gas left over from the formation of the Sun, which also created .

The eighth edition of "Evolution of the Earth" is an excellent summary of earth history, with few typos. The book should include a higher proportion of more current illustrations and diagrams; too many of them are pre's.

This book describes comprehensively the evolution of the earth, from the time of the big bang to the present, and in the final chapter there are short and long term forecasts of the future and what we can do to influence it (2 billion years on, whatever we do, the earth will be swallowed by an expanding sun).

In this post, we will see the book Origin and Chemical Evolution of the Earth by G.V. Voitkevich. Earlier, we had seen Origin and Development of Life on Earth by the same author, which can be seen as a companion volume to the one in this post.

This is a book in the Science for Everyone Series. With this post, we have almost completed this series. As of now, we have updated all. The best of all possible worlds. Three important maxims --The evolution of the Earth. The idea of evolution --Chemical evolution of the Earth. Cont.): Evolutionary feedback --Our place in the global ecosystem.

Earth has been home to over five billion different species of organisms. Of all of those living life forms, an estimated 99% of all species are now extinct. We, humans, are currently sharing the earth with about 12 million other species. The final graphic diagram compares Earth's 4 Ù billion-year history with a hour day, showing modern man popping into the scene at p.m.

It stresses what assumptions are made by earth. Summary: This title focuses on the formation of Earth, core and continents, outgassing and volcanism, development of plate tectonics, origin and persistence of Earth's magnetic field, growth of the inner core, changes in mantle convection through time, and impact of biology With a fresh new perspective, Evolution on Planet Earth shows how these physical realities and hurdles shaped the primary phases of life on the planet.

Nearly all branches of natural science have contributed to understanding of the main events of Earth's past, characterized by constant geological change and biological evolution.

Yes. There are books, like Richard Dawkins’s The Ancestor’s Tale or The Greatest Show on Earth, which give you evidence for evolution and are educational. But they weren’t inspirational to me in the way that these five books are.

These are books that would be of benefit not only to the layperson but also to the working biologist.S. Ramachandran "To call this book a defense of evolution utterly misses the point: "The Greatest Show on Earth" is a celebration of one of the best ideas humans have ever produced.
