Pillars of Evolution

Fundamental principles of the eco-evolutionary process

Douglas W. Morris and Per Lundberg

  • Provides a novel and compelling argument for evolutionary biology as a predictive science
  • Each chapter develops the requisite theory and reviews cogent examples of the six core themes (pillars) that comprise the eco-evolutionary process: mechanics, function, structure, scale, dynamics, and adaptation
  • General principles are highlighted, footnotes define key terms, and boxes simplify difficult concepts; all of which allow readers to review content easily
