Stephen Jay Gould by Warren D. Allmon

Book Description

Considered by many during his lifetime as the most well-known scientist in the world, Stephen Jay Gould left an enormous and influential body of work. A Harvard professor of paleontology, evolutionary biology, and the history of science, Gould provided major insights into our understanding of the history of life. He helped to reinvigorate paleontology, launch macroevolution on a new course, and provide a context in which the biological developmental stages of an organism's embryonic growth could be integrated into an understanding of evolution. This book is a set of reflections on the many areas of Gould's intellectual life by the people who knew and understood him best: former students and prominent close collaborators. Mostly a critical assessment of his legacy, the chapters are not technical contributions but rather offer a combination of intellectual bibliography, personal memoir, and reflection on Gould's diverse scientific achievements. The work includes the most complete bibliography of his writings to date and offers a multi-dimensional view of Gould's life-work not to be found in any other volume.

For the Rock Record by Warren D. Allmon For the Rock Record, Paperback (March 2009)

According to the idea of intelligent design, nature's complexity is the result of deliberate planning by a supernatural creative force. This book reveals that the flaws of intelligent design are not limited to the biological sciences.

Evolutionary Paleoecology by Warren D. Allmon Evolutionary Paleoecology, Paperback (January 2001)

One of the most important questions we can ask about life is "Does ecology matter?" Most biologists and paleontologists are trained to answer "yes". This book examines the mechanisms by which ecology matters in the context of patterns that play out over millions of years and looks at how ancient environments affected evolution.
