Extreme Environmental Change and Evolution by Ary A. Hoffmann

Book Description

Most natural populations intermittently experience extremely stressful conditions. This book discusses how such conditions can cause periods of intense selection, increasing both phenotypic and genetic variation, and allowing organisms with novel characteristics to be first generated and then established in the population. The authors argue that stressful conditions can have a major impact on the environment, backing up their arguments with evidence from the fossil record. They suggest further that, as a consequence, periods of stress must be taken into consideration when long term conservation strategies are planned, particularly as stressful conditions are becoming increasingly prevalent as a result of human activities. This broad overview will be of great interest to students and researchers in the field of evolutionary biology, genetics, ecology, palaeontology and conservation biology.

Books By Author Ary A. Hoffmann

Influential Passengers by Ary A. Hoffmann Influential Passengers, Paperback (October 1997)

The ways in which bacteria can manipulate reproduction of their invertebrate hosts for their own benefit is increasingly attracting scientific attention. Written by leading experts, this text assembles background information on the topic and presents recent advances in the field.

Extreme Environmental Change and Evolution by Ary A. Hoffmann Extreme Environmental Change and Evolution, Hardback (July 1997)

Broad overview of how environmental stress affects the rate of evolutionary change.

Evolutionary Genetics and Environmental Stress by Ary A. Hoffmann Evolutionary Genetics and Environmental Stress, Paperback (June 1993)

This study concentrates on evolutionary change under environmental stress at levels ranging from the molecular to the biogeographic, with an emphasis on genetic aspects. This approach contrasts with much of the literature of evolutionary biology, focusing on resistance to change.
