Billions of Years, Amazing Changes

Through the work of scientists over the past 150 years or so, we now have lots of evidence that helps us understand the processes of evolution that connect all living things. How did it all come together? This book provides a comprehensive overview from the fields of biology, palaeontology, and geology. You will find chapters on Evidence from the Earth, How Fossils Form, The Adventures and Discoveries of Charles Darwin, Evolution, Variation, Natural Selection, Genetics, and much more including recent discoveries of transitional forms between fish and land animals, dinosaurs and birds, and land mammals and whales. This is probably most useful as a reference book and covers an impressive range of evolutionary science. Children and adults alike will enjoy expanding their understanding of evolutionary processes.
