About this book

Energy and the Evolution of Life provides an interdisciplinary approach to the question of life's origin. The text includes clear coverage of biochemical and mathematical topics. The author develops a novel approach to two fundamental problems in evolutionary biology: How did self-reproducing molecules arise from inert matter? How and why have living organisms become progressively more complex through evolution? His thesis is that "biological organization and evolution are a consequence of the flow of energy through matter."
