  • First Signals
    First Signals (English, Paperback) John Tyler Bonner

  • The Evolution of Complexity by Means of Natural Selection
    The Evolution of Complexity by Means of Natural Selection (English, Paperback) John Tyler Bonner

    How is it that an egg turns into an elaborate adult? How is it that a bacterium, given many millions of years, could have evolved into an elephant? The author argues that we can understand this progression in terms of natural selection, but that in order to do so we must consider the role of development in evolutionary change.
