Chemistry of Evolution by R. J. P. Williams

Book Description

Conventionally, evolution has always been described in terms of species. "The Chemistry of Evolution" takes a novel, not to say revolutionary, approach and examines the evolution of chemicals and the use and degradation of energy, coupled to the environment, as the drive behind it. The authors address the major changes of life from bacteria to man in a systematic and unavoidable sequence, reclassifying organisms as chemotypes. Written by the authors of the bestseller "The Biological Chemistry of the Elements - The Inorganic Chemistry of Life", the clarity and precision of "The Chemistry of Evolution" plainly demonstrate that life is totally interactive with the environment. This exciting theory makes this work an essential addition to the academic and public library. This book provides a novel analysis of evolution in chemical terms, stresses Systems Biology, and examines the connection between life and the environment, starting with the big bang theory. It reorientates the chemistry of life by emphasising the need to analyse the functions of 20 chemical elements in all organisms.
