About this book

Recent studies show that at many levels of biological organization, mechanisms have evolved to prevent potential conflict in natural selection. Editor Laurent Keller's aim in this book is to bring together the leading researchers from all biological disciplines to outline these potential conflicts and discuss how they are resolved. A multi level approach of this kind allows important insights into the evolution of life, as well as bridging the long standing conceptual chasm between molecular and organismal biologists.
