Evolution as Entropy by Daniel R. Brooks

Book Description

"By combining recent advances in the physical sciences with some of the novel ideas, techniques, and data of modern biology, this book attempts to achieve a new and different kind of evolutionary synthesis. I found it to be challenging, fascinating, infuriating, and provocative, but certainly not dull."--James H, Brown, University of New Mexico"This book is unquestionably mandatory reading not only for every living biologist but for generations of biologists to come."--Jack P. Hailman, "Animal Behaviour," review of the first edition"An important contribution to modern evolutionary thinking. It fortifies the place of Evolutionary Theory among the other well-established natural laws."--R.Gessink, "TAXON"
