    This book wasdeveloped as atextbook for my course Genome (Population Genetics). It is nearly in a final form. Each chapter ends with two sets of problems. Those labeled Exercises are intended to be relatively straightforward application of principles given in the text. They usually involve numericalcalculation or Size: 2MB. Life history theory seeks to explain the evolution of the major features of life cycles by analysing the ecological factors that shape age-specific schedules of growth, reproduction, and survival and by investigating the trade-offs that constrain the evolution of these traits. While life history theory has made enormous progress in explaining the diversity of life history strategies among.

Life History Evolution represents a synthetic approach to the understanding of the evolution of life history variation using the three types of environment (constant, stochastic, predictable) as the focus under which the theory is developed and tested.

First, the author outlines a general framework for the study and analysis of life history variation, bringing together the approaches of. I found the book to be timely, well written, and well organized.

It should be a valuable reference for those working in the field of mammal life histories, and should also be of interest to anyone interested in life history evolution in general."—Randal J.

Snyder, Quarterly Review of Biology. (shelved 2 times as genetics-and-evolution) avg rating — 27, ratings — published The impetus for this book arose out of my previous book, The Evolution of Life Histories (Roff, ).

In that book I presented a single chapter on quanti­ tative genetic theory. However, as the book was concerned with the evolution of life histories and traits connected to this, the presence ofBrand: Springer US. Life history theory is an analytical framework designed to study the diversity of life history strategies used by different organisms throughout the world, as well as the causes and results of the variation in their life cycles.

It is a theory of biological evolution that seeks to explain aspects of organisms' anatomy and behavior by reference to the way that their life histories—including.

This book is the first comprehensive summary of life-history evolution, a field that holds a central position in modern ecology, evolution, and population biology. The book offers an up-to-date description of the analytical tools used in evolutionary explanation: demographics, quantitative genetics, reaction norms, trade-offs, and phylogenetic.

Life-history traits or “fitness components”—such as age and size at maturity, fecundity and fertility, age-specific rates of survival, and life span—are the major phenotypic determinants of Darwinian fitness. Analyzing the evolution and genetics of these phenotypic targets of selection is central to our understanding of adaptation.

Due to its simple and rapid life cycle, cosmopolitan Author: Thomas Flatt. This book introduces life history evolution to postgraduate students just beginning their research in population biology, ecology, or evolutionary biology.

It discusses major analytical tools, gives examples of their applications, and provides problems for discussion at the end of each chapter. It will interest all biologists wishing to understand the evolution of the life cycle and the causes. Archaea may have set the stage for multi-cellular life.

Humans and Archaea share genes. EEF1 Alpha 1 is in every living thing. Time of Evolution () Steve Jones believes we all share certain genes in the deep processes of life. He discusses the time line of evolution.

Complex cells appear suddenly in evolution. Viewers compare human cells. A species’ life history describes the series of events over its lifetime, such as how resources are allocated for growth, maintenance, and reproduction.

Life history traits affect the life table of an organism. A species’ life history is genetically determined and shaped by the environment and natural selection. This list is designed for students in an advanced class in evolution, or beginning graduate students.

The list includes long-lasting classics, books of value or controversy, and recent or hot books. Some recent books will doubtless have only ephemeral value but they are included because of their utility in finding term paper topics, getting.This book is the first comprehensive summary of life-history evolution, a field that holds a central position in modern ecology, evolution, and population biology.

The necessary pieces of information for making demographic predictions are the rate at which new offspring are produced and the rate at which individuals die. The most common representation of a life history is that of the discrete life table (Charlesworth, ).
