Evolutionary Theory: Mathematical and Conceptual Foundations

Front Cover
Sinauer, Sep 1, 2004 - Science - 348 pages
This text is for graduate students, researchers and advanced undergraduates who want an understanding of the mathematical and biological reasoning that underlies evolutionary theory. The book covers all of the major theoretical approaches used to study
the mechanics of evolution. Each subject is illustrated by focusing on those results that have the greatest power to influence the way that we think about how evolution works.

SEAN H. RICE is Associate Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University, and Assistant Curator of Invertebrate Paleontology at Yale's Peabody Museum of Natural History USA. He received his Ph.D., in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, from the University of Arizona. Dr. Rice's work in evolutionary biology has explored a wide range of topics, including developmental modeling, morphological evolution in both invertebrates and vertebrates, population and quantitative genetics. His current research focuses on general mathematical theories governing the evolution of gene interactions and development.
