About this book

The main argument of this evolutionary text is that natural selection is the process of differential reproduction resulting from differential adaptedness to a common selective environment. In it the author goes on to explore the various concepts involved in natural selection, from how to distinguish it from random drift, how to recognize its various levels, and how to separate the results of selection from those of random distribution of competing types across heterogeneous environments.
