The Facts On File Dictionary of Evolutionary Biology explains the basic set of scientific terms, concepts, and issues at the heart of evolutionary biology. With heredity and evolution being a key section of the high school AP course in biology, making up 25 percent of the content, this exceptionally clear dictionary is a valuable reference for high school and undergraduate students. It provides quick access to more than 1,800 concise, authoritative definitions that will help students gain a stronger understanding of the subject.

The volume's comprehensive coverage includes terms relating to the origin of life and the evidence and mechanisms of evolution, such as natural selection, heredity, and speciation. It also covers evolution in relation to the diversity of living organisms, including the terms used in phylogenetic classifications, evolutionary relationships, and relevant aspects of developmental biology as well as aspects of the modern "evo/devo" school of biology. Appendixes include classification of plants and animals and a list of websites.

  • Acclimatization
  • Biosystematics
