Understanding Climate's Influence on Human Evolution (2010)
"The hominin fossil record documents a history of critical evolutionary events that have ultimately shaped and defined what it means to be human, including the origins of bipedalism; the emergence of our genus Homo; the first use of stone tools; increases in brain size; and the emergence of Homo sapiens, tools, and culture. The Earth's geological record suggests that some evolutionary events were coincident with substantial changes in African and Eurasian climate, raising the possibility that critical junctures in human evolution and behavioral development may have been affected by the environmental characteristics of the areas where hominins evolved."

The Descent of Man
Charles Darwin
published by The University of Adelaide

"During many years I collected notes on the origin or descent of man, without any intention of publishing on the subject, but rather with the determination not to publish, as I thought that I should thus only add to the prejudices against my views."

Crossing Over
The basics of evolution: workbook for teachers

Edith Dempster (2006)
"... we ran a teacher-training project to help teachers become aware of the importance of the Human Genome Project and to increase their understanding of genetics and the ways in which characteristics are transferred or inherited from one generation to the next."

 

Pioneers of Evolution from Thales to Huxley
by Edward Clodd (2012)
The Project Gutenberg eBook
"It (the book) attempts to tell the story of the origin of the Evolution idea in Ionia, and, after long arrest, of the revival of that idea in modern times, when its profound and permanent influence on thought in all directions, and, therefore, on human relations and conduct, is apparent."

 

Evolution Collection:
13 Books on Evolution
from NAP.edu
"How did life evolve on Earth? The answer can help us understand our past and prepare for our future. This collection documents the overwhelming evidence in support of biological evolution, stresses the importance of biodiversity and ecosystem management, and evaluates the alternative perspectives offered by various kinds of creationism. These reports also focus on how science and religion can be viewed as different ways of understanding the world, rather than as frameworks that are in conflict with each other. For educators, students, teachers, community leaders, legislators, policy makers, and parents who seek to better understand all aspects of evolutionary science, this collection is an essential resource."

 

Introduction to Evolutionary Biology
by Chris Colby (1996)
"Evolution is the cornerstone of modern biology. It unites all the fields of biology under one theoretical umbrella."
