The first chimpanzee : in search of human origins by John Gribbin( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"People and apes share an ancestor. In common parlance, we are descended from the apes. But evidence that we share almost all our DNA with chimpanzees and gorillas has forced a rethink. Not only is our common ancestor much more recent - four million years instead of twenty - but the whole story might be backwards. A four-million-year-old man ape walked upright. So why did apes return to the trees, while humanity strode on? Can a one per cent difference in DNA account for human civilization? John Gribbin and Jeremy Cherfas tell the most compelling detective story in science - the story of where we came from."--Jacket

The mating game : in search of the meaning of sex by John Gribbin( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why do women bother to have sons? Imagine a mutant female, one who, like many other organisms, can do without males and still have young. Her offspring will all be females who, like their mother, can reproduce without the help of males. The result: twice as many descendants and a growing pool of asexual women. But that is not what we see. So what are the evolutionary advantages of sexual reproduction?" "Acclaimed science writers John Gribbin and Jeremy Cherfas explain why we reproduce in the way that we do. Looking at everything from single-cell organisms to computer-dating agencies, they reveal how human sexual behaviour - like our attitudes to incest, promiscuity and homosexuality - is deeply rooted in our evolutionary past. Modern technology could soon make men redundant - if it wasn't for one tiny snag. It looks as if we're stuck with sex - and for the most surprising reasons. This book explores its many astonishing oddities."--Jacket
Round Table Discussion on Bioscience-Society : report of the Round Table Discussion on Bioscience-Society, Berlin, 1990 December 1 by Jeremy Cherfas( Book )

7 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To mark the occasion of the lOOth anniversary of Schering research two events took place: a) a Workshop on Bioscience ;:=: Society, which was held November 24-30, 1990 in Berlin. The goal of the workshop was: Do current and anticipated developments in bioscience require a new covenant between science and society? The results have been published as the first volume of a newly created "Schering Foundation Workshop" series* by John Wiley & Sons Ltd, Chich ester, England (D.J. Roy, E.W. Wynne, and R.W. Old, eds. (1991), Bio science ;:=: Society, Chichester: John Wiley & Sons); b) a Round Table Discussion, held on December I, 1990, where the results of the workshop were discussed by a special invited panel. The meetings were sponsored by the Senate of the City of Berlin and Schering AG, Berlin. This publication contains summary reports of the four discussion groups of the workshop presented by their moderators, and the comments of the panel at the Round Table Discussion. This is the second volume in the "Schering Foundation Workshop" series. We hope that this series will contribute to a better understanding of science and to a better recognition of its merits
