Optimisation theory is designed to find the best ways of doing things. The structures of animals, their movements, their behaviour, and their life histories have all been shaped by the optimising processes of evolution or of learning by trial and error. In this revised edition of a widely acclaimed book, we see how extraordinarily diverse branches of biology are illuminated by the powerful methods of optimisation theory.
This is a comprehensively revised edition, now taking in not only optimum structures and movements, but also the games theory of animal behaviour strategies and life styles... It is in this breadth of its Darwinian perspective and the detail of its analysis and examples that the book's strength lies. Journal of Biological Education
