Evolutionary Genetics by John Maynard Smith

Book Description

The first edition of Maynard Smith's Evolutionary Genetics (first published in 1989) was welcomed as the first comprehensive introduction to the molecular and population aspects of evolutionary genetics, and has now become one of the definitive textbooks in the field. Aimed at advanced undergraduates in the biological sciences, the book covers basic population and quantitative genetics, evolutionary game theory, behavioural evolution, sexual selection and mating systems, speciation, and macroevolution. Theory and mathematics are clearly explained, with the aid of problems at the ends of the chapters, and the author takes care to place these within the context of questions central to current research in evolutionary biology. This Second Edition has been revised and updated throughout to reflect new findings and research interests. In the chapter on phenotypic evolution, the author incorporates new research on game theory. The discussions of sex and host-parasite interactions have been extensively revised and the author has added a new chapter on molecular genetics and the reconstruction of evolutionary history. Evolutionary Genetics remains the essential textbook for advanced undergraduates seeking a clear, comprehensive, and up-to-date account of the theory of evolutionary biology.

Origins of Life by John Maynard Smith Origins of Life, Paperback (March 2000)

In this volume, John Maynard Smith and Eors Szathmary propose that during evolution, there have been a number of major transitions in the way in which information is passed between generations. These include the appearance of the first replicating molecules, the emergence of co-operative animal societies, and the unique language ability of humans.

Major Transitions in Evolution by John Maynard Smith Major Transitions in Evolution, Paperback (October 1997)

During evolution, there have been several major changes in the way genetic information is organized and transmitted. These transitions include the origin of life itself, the first eukaryotic cells, reproduction by sexual means, and more. This illustrated book discusses these major transitions and their implications, along with diagrams.

Ant and the Peacock by John Maynard Smith Ant and the Peacock, Paperback (September 1993)

An enthralling account of the arguments about altruism and sexual selection raging since Darwin's day.

Theory of Evolution by John Maynard Smith Theory of Evolution, Paperback (July 1993)

This book describes how evolution theory has been confirmed, but at the same time transformed, by recent research.
