Where did we come from? How have humans and the rest of life on Earth evolved through time? What is the link between the development of life and the geological phenomena and processes that have taken place over millions of years.
In the book Evolution - The Development of Life and Earth, the focus is on these issues.
The book is designed in such a way that it can be used at several educational levels in biology and geography classes in upper secondary or high school, as well as further education colleges and adult education centres, or in interdisciplinary courses related to the topic of evolution and the development of life and earth.
The book acts as a journey back in time illustrating the impact of major geological events and the biological stages of evolution. In the course of working through the book, readers will gain an understanding of the development of the earth and the development of its life, and be able to recognize the connection between geological events and biological evolution. The reader will specifically work with evolution and evolutionary principles, such as "natural selection". Acquaintance is also made with some of the evolutionary scientists who have had the greatest impact on the theories’ development, for example Charles Darwin.
Throughout the book there is focus on knowledge not only being conveyed through the text, but also through a series of interactive features in the form of images, film, animations and student-motivating assignments. The reader is actively involved in examining the issues that the book explains.
