About this book

Provides a stimulating critique of contemporary evolutionary thought, analyzing the Modern Synthesis first developed by Theodosius Dobzhansky, Ernst Mayr and George Gaylord Simpson. The author proposes that species, higher taxa and ecological entities such as populations and communities should be construed as individuals as well as single genes or organisms.
`Interesting and provocative . . . a must for those with a genuine interest in the processes of evolution.' Choice
