Tangled Tree, Quammen,  David
Tangled Tree
David Quammen

Hardback $45.00 - HarperCollins Publishers
Science - Published: 24/Sep/2018 - ISBN: 9780008310684

Our understanding of the ‘tree of life', with implications for human genetics, human health and our own human nature, has recently completely changed. Quammen's book is about a new method of telling the story of life on earth through molecular phylogenetics - the reading of the deep history of life by looking at the variation in protein molecules found in living organisms. In the Tangled Tree Quammen chronicles these discoveries through the lives of the researchers who made them and explains how molecular studies of evolution have brought startling recognitions about the tangled tree of life – including where we humans fit into it.
