            On The Origin Of Species (EPUB ebook)

            By Darwin, Professor Charles

            Published in 1859, The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin introduced the theory of natural selection to a newly-receptive public. As a young naturalist on the second voyage of HMS Beagle (1831-36), Darwin collected many plant and animal specimens, and it was his close examinatio...n of them that eventually led to his theories on evolution and natural selection.HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

            Fossil Men: The Quest for the Oldest Skeleton and the Origins of Humankind
             

            Fossil Men: The Quest for the Oldest Skeleton and the Origins of Humankind (Hardback)

            In 1994, an excavation team led by fossil-hunting legend Tim White- the Steve Jobs of paleoanthropology -uncovered the bones of a human ancestor in Ethiopia's Afar region. Radiometric dating indicated the skeleton, classified as Ardipithecus ramidus, was 4.4 million years old, mo...re than a million years older than Lucy, our earliest known human ancestor. The findings shattered many widely accepted assumptions about human evolution-how we started walking, how we evolved our nimble hands, and, most significantly, whether we were descended from a common ancestor that resembled today's chimpanzee-and repudiated a half-century of paleoanthropological orthodoxy. Fossil Men is the first full-length exploration of Ardi, the fossil men who found her, and her impact on what we know about the origins of the human species. Kermit Pattison brings into focus a cast of eccentric, obsessive scientists, including one of the world's greatest fossil hunters, Tim White-an irascible and demanding scientist feared by friends and enemies alike; Gen Suwa, a Japanese savant who slept in his office so he could devote more time to fossils; Owen Lovejoy, a onetime creationist-turned-paleoanthropologist; Berhane Asfaw, who survived imprisonment and torture to become Ethiopia's most senior paleoanthropologist and who fought for Africans scientists to gain equal footing in the study of human origins; and the Leakeys, for decades the most famous family in anthropology, who maintained a testy relationship with the Ardi team and cast doubt on the discovery.An intriguing tale of scientific discovery and bitter rivalry that moves from the sun-baked plains of Africa and a nation caught in a brutal civil war, to modern high-tech labs and academic lecture halls, Fossil Men is popular science at its best, and a must read for fans of Jared Diamond, Richard Dawkins, and Edward O. Wilson.
