Dear friends of NCSE,

A preview of Niles Eldredge’s latest book, Eternal Ephemera.

A PEEK AT ETERNAL EPHEMERA

NCSE is pleased to offer a free preview of Niles Eldredge’s Eternal
Ephemera: Adaptation and the Origin of Species from the Nineteenth
Century Through Punctuated Equilibria and Beyond (Columbia University
Press, 2015). The preview consists of the introduction, in which
Eldredge explains “my entire narrative is about the development of a
natural causal explanation for the origin of the species of the modern
fauna and the addition of the phenomenon of adaptation generated by
natural selection.”

A member of NCSE’s Advisory Council and a recipient of NCSE’s Friend
of Darwin award in 2011, Eldredge is a paleontologist formerly on the
curatorial staff of the American Museum of Natural History. He is the
author of many books, including The Triumph of Evolution: And the
Failure of Creationism (W. H. Freeman, 2000), Darwin: Discovering the
Tree of Life (W. W. Norton, 2005), and Extinction and Evolution
(Firefly, 2014), and was a founding coeditor of the journal Evolution:
Education and Outreach.
