Punctuated equilibrium / Gould, S.J. (2007)
Titre : Punctuated equilibrium Type de document : livre Auteurs : Gould, S.J. Editeur : Cambridge : The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press AnnÃ©e de publication : 2007 Importance : 396 p. ISBN/ISSN/EAN : 9780674024441 Langues : Anglais (eng) MotsclÃ©s : Evolutionary theory Speciation RÃ©sumÃ© : In 1972 Stephen Jay Gould took the scientific world by storm with his paper on punctuated equilibrium, written with Niles Eldredge. Challenging a core assumption of Darwin's theory of evolution, it launched the career of one of the most influential evolutionary biologists of our timeperhaps the best known since Darwin. Now, thirtyfive years later, and five years after his untimely death, Punctuated Equilibrium (originally published as the central chapter of Gould's masterwork, The Structure of Evolutionary Theory) offers his only booklength testament on an idea he fiercely promoted, repeatedly refined, and tirelessly defended. Punctuated equilibrium holds that the great majority of species originate in geological moments (punctuations) and persist in stasis. The idea was hotly debated because it forced biologists to rethink entrenched ideas about evolutionary patterns and processes. But as Gould shows here in his typically exhaustive coverage, the idea has become the foundation of a new view of hierarchical selection and macroevolution. What emerges strikingly from this book is that punctuated equilibrium represents a much broader paradigm about the nature of changea worldview that may be judged as a distinctive and important movement within recent intellectual history. Indeed we may now be living within a punctuation, and our awareness of what this means may be the enduring legacy of one of America's bestloved scientists.

Titre : Evolutionary dynamics Type de document : livre Auteurs : Nowak, M.A. Editeur : Cambridge : The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press AnnÃ©e de publication : 2006 Importance : 363 p. ISBN/ISSN/EAN : 9780674023383 Langues : Anglais (eng) MotsclÃ©s : Evolution Evolutionary biology RÃ©sumÃ© : At a time of unprecedented expansion in the life sciences, evolution is the one theory that transcends all of biology. Any observation of a living system must ultimately be interpreted in the context of its evolution. Evolutionary change is the consequence of mutation and natural selection, which are two concepts that can be described by mathematical equations.Evolutionary Dynamics is concerned with these equations of life. In this book, Martin Nowak draws on the languages of biology and mathematics to outline the mathematical principles according to which life evolves. His work introduces readers to the powerful yet simple laws that govern the evolution of living systems, no matter how complicated they might seem. Evolution has become a mathematical theory, Nowak suggests, and any idea of an evolutionary process or mechanism should be studied in the context of the mathematical equations of evolutionary dynamics. His book presents a range of analytical tools that can be used to this end: fitness landscapes, mutation matrices, genomic sequence space, random drift, quasispecies, replicators, the Prisoner's Dilemma, games in finite and infinite populations, evolutionary graph theory, games on grids, evolutionary kaleidoscopes, fractals, and spatial chaos. Nowak then shows how evolutionary dynamics applies to critical realworld problems, including the progression of viral diseases such as AIDS, the virulence of infectious agents, the unpredictable mutations that lead to cancer, the evolution of altruism, and even the evolution of human language. His book makes a clear and compelling case for understanding every living systemand everything that arises as a consequence of living systemsin terms of evolutionary dynamics.
