PITCH: «Extensively rewritten and reorganized, this new edition of Evolution -- featuring a new coauthor: Mark Kirkpatrick (The University of Texas at Austin) -- offers additional expertise in evolutionary genetics and genomics, the fastest-developing area of evolutionary biology. Directed toward an undergraduate audience, the text emphasizes the interplay between theory and empirical tests of hypotheses, thus acquainting students with the process of science. It addresses major themes -- including the history of evolution, evolutionary processes, adaptation, and evolution as an explanatory framework -- at levels of biological organization ranging from genomes to ecological communities.»
NEW to this Edition:
* Genomic perspectives on evolution are strengthened throughout
* The content has a stronger focus on human evolution: an entirely new chapter on the topic (Chapter 21, The Evolutionary Story of Homo sapiens), and new examples throughout the book
* Many chapters have been rewritten from the ground up
* The book has been entirely reillustrated in a clean, contemporary style that enhances the content
* A new Appendix, A Statistics Primer, introduces the concept of a probability distribution, reviews how statistics are used to describe populations, looks at how we estimate quantities, and discusses how hypotheses are tested. It ends with a brief overview of two major frameworks of statistical analysis: likelihood and Bayesian inference. Math is kept to a minimum.

NOTE: Four days after upload and for the next two months, the seed count of this torrent won't be updated (trackers won't be scraped?) and will probably be reported larger than it actually is. After this 2 week period, tracker scraping will resume but sporadically if not erratically.

Apart from Google that crawls the whole web and downlists (if not delists) torrent links, multi-metasearch engines aiosearch.com, torrentz2.eu, torrentseeker.com, and re-indexers BitTorrent Database, zooqle.com will help you in your search for torrents (and only torrents) floating in torrent space. You can search these sites by keyword(s) from title or author's name and, with some, by hash code.
Remember that, once created, torrents never cease to exist even when de-indexed, DMCA'd or left for dead - unseeded. And that a torrent listed with no seeds on a particular set of trackers is not necessarily a dead torrent (Good critters inhabit the DHT-PEX layer though they aren't accounted for in torrent stats).
