This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Conceptual Breakthroughs in Evolutionary Ecology provides a historical overview of the field that no other book has attempted, covering major advances and breakthroughs in evolutionary ecology from its beginning stages to present-day. Although biologists recognize this field by name, many only have a limited understanding of its conceptual roots and historical development. This book fills that knowledge gap in a thought-provoking and readable format. Following an easily-accessible structure, this book encapsulates and chronologizes the most history behind evolutionary ecology since the 1970s. Written by a world-renowned evolutionary ecologist, this book embodies a unique blend of expertise in combining theory and experiment, population genetics and ecology and particularly the integration of age-structure and density-dependent selection into an understanding of life-history evolution. Conceptual Breakthroughs in Evolutionary Ecology is a wonderful springboard for discussions in undergraduate or graduate seminars in evolutionary biology and ecology, and even appeals to researchers and professionals looking for insight into the field's history. Covers over 80 seminal breakthroughs and paradigm shifts in the field of evolutionary biology and ecology Modular format permits ready access to each described subject Historical overview of a field whose concepts are central to all of biology and relevant to a broad audience of biologists, science historians, and philosophers of science
