NCSE Evolution and Climate Education Update for 2016/12/16

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear friends of NCSE,

A preview of Sean B. Carroll's latest book.

A PREVIEW OF THE SERENGETI RULES

NCSE is pleased to offer a free preview of Sean B. Carroll's The
Serengeti Rules: The Quest to Discover How Life Works and Why It
Matters (Princeton University Press, 2016). The preview consists of
chapter 2, "The Economy of Nature," in which Carroll discusses the
work of a "young English naturalist [who] went on an expedition ...,
encountered an odd assortment of creatures, became gripped by a
mystery, had an epiphany (or several) during his adventures, wrote a
great book, and founded a new field of science" -- not Charles Darwin,
but the twentieth-century ecologist Charles Elton.

The reviewer for Publishers Weekly writes, "In this remarkably
engaging book, Carroll  ... persuasively argues that life at all
levels of complexity is self-regulated, from the inner workings of
cells to the larger relationships governing the Serengeti ecosystem.
... Carroll superbly animates biological principles while providing
important insights." A member of NCSE's Advisory Council and a
recipient of NCSE's Friend of Darwin Award, Carroll is vice president
for science education at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the
Allan Wilson Professor of Molecular Biology and Genetics at the
University of Wisconsin, Madison.
