Evolution of Biological Diversity

Edited by Anne E. Magurran and Robert M. May

This volume explores one of the most challenging questions in biology: how do species arise? It contains work by some of the world leaders in the field, including Simon Conway-Morris, Sir Robert May, and Stephen Jay Gould, and the chapters examine a variety of aspects, from the ecological and behavioral basis for differentiation to the role of natural selection. The book includes chapters on the emerging links between sex selection, sexual conflict, and population differentiation.
