About this book

A series of essays by leading evolutionists that identify and explain those terms in evolutionary biology with variable or confused meanings. Contributors include Stephen Jay Gould, Diane Paul, John Beatty, Peter Bowler, and Richard Dawkins. Exploring the complexity of keywords and clarifying their role in prominent issues in the field, this book will prove invaluable to scientists and philosophers trying to come to terms with evolutionary theory; it will also serve as a useful guide to future research into the ways in which scientific language works.
