Evolution Through Natural Selection

Logo for Evolution Through Natural Selection
This is a free, online textbook/course for a short course in Evolution.  According to the authors, "In this unit, we describe the theory of evolution by natural selection as proposed by Charles Darwin in his book, first published in 1859, On The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. We will look at natural selection as Darwin did, taking inheritance for granted, but ignoring the mechanisms underlying it."
