Dawkins came to prominence with his book The Selfish Gene, which popularised the gene-centred view of evolution and introduced the term meme.   David Sloan Wilson. David Sloan Wilson is SUNY Distinguished Professor of Biology and Anthropology at Binghamton University. He applies evolutionary theory to all aspects of humanity in addition to the rest of life, both in his own research and as director of EvoS, a unique campus-wide evolutionary studies program that recently received NSF funding to expand into a nationwide .

    This book aims to present different voices and perspectives on the adaptive landscape, its past, present, and future position in evolutionary biology. Chapters have been written by scientists in different fields, including ecology, evolution, developmental biology, genetics, history of science and philosophy. The idea for this book came a few years ago, as the year anniversary of Sewall. Turner, J.R.G. () “Fisher’s Evolutionary Faith and the Challenge of Mimicry,” in R. Dawkins and M.

; Eisenberg J. The Mammalian Radiations. Chicago: University of Chicago Press,   1. Introduction. Hamilton's inclusive fitness theory [1,2], now 50 years old, has had a revolutionary effect on our understanding of evolution following the Modern Synthesis of the mid-twentieth works, both specialist [3–6] and more general [7–11], have explained the basis and predictions of the theory, also known as kin selection theory.

Evolutionary Ecology simultaneously unifies conceptual and empirical advances in evolutionary ecology and provides a volume that can be used as either a primary textbook or a supplemental reading in an advanced undergraduate or graduate course.

The focus of the book is on current concepts in evolutionary ecology, and the empirical study of these concepts.7 This argument is found in Mayr, Ernst, “Darwin and the evolutionary theory in biology”, Evolution and Anthropology: A centennial appraisal.

Meggers, ed. (Washington DC: Anthropology Society of Washington, ), and The Growth of Biological Thought (Cambridge Mass.: Belnap Press, ). Without any mechanism for the evolution of cooperation, natural selection favors defectors. In a mixed population defectors, D, have a higher payoff (=fitness) than cooperators, ore, natural selection continuously reduces the abundance, i, of cooperators until they are average fitness of the population also declines under natural selection.
