Where to Go from Here

This book is organized so that you can go wherever you want to find complete information. Want to know about the role natural selection plays in evolution? Head to Chapter 5. If you're interested in the link between individual fitness and how certain social systems develop, go to Chapter 11. You can use the table of contents to find broad categories of information or the index to look up more specific things.

If you're just beginning to learn about evolution, I suggest that you start with Part I. It gives you all the basic information about evolutionary principles and points to places where you can find more detailed information.

What Evolution Is

The 5th Wave_By Rich Tennant

£r volution is the process that explains how organisms change over time. It's really as simple — and as profound — as that. And in this part, I begin with the very basics: key evolutionary principles, from Darwin's day to today. You'll also find a very brief discussion of genetics. Why? Because the only changes that are important to evolutionary study are genetic ones.
