About this book

Based on studies of the fossil record, this book examines the directionality of evolution - termed evolutionary trends - a fundamental aspect of life history that has received comparatively little attention. It describes evolutionary trends from intraspecific level to macroevolutionary changes, in a range of invertebrate and vertebrate organisms, and sets out to explain why organisms have evolved in the direction that they have.
