Summary

From Darwin onward, it has been second nature for evolutionary biologists to think comparatively, because comparisons establish the generality of evolutionary phenomena. Do large genomes slow down development? What lifestyles select for large brains? Are extinction rates related to body size? These are all questions for the comparative method, and this book is about how such questions can be answered. It examines how the comparative method complements other approaches, identifies the biological causes of similarity among species, and discusses methods for reconstructing phylogenetic trees, along with many other topics. The book will interest all students, professionals, and researchers in evolutionary biology, ecology, genetics and related fields.


Features:

  • First book in a new series in ecology and evolution under the editorship of well-known leaders in the field, Paul Harvey and Robert May.
  • US co-author; Pagel teaches at Harvard
  • Simultaneous publication in cloth and paperback.
  • Synthesizes the two central concepts in comparative biology: ancestry and adaptation.
