Offering daring new ideas about evolution, two highly respected biologists here tackle the central, unresolved question in the field--how have living organisms on Earth developed with such astounding variety and complexity? Marc Kirschner and John Gerhart draw on cutting-edge biological and medical research to provide an original solution to this longstanding puzzle.
