    Biology is the natural science that studies life and living organisms, including their physical structure, chemical processes, molecular interactions, physiological mechanisms, development and evolution. Despite the complexity of the science, there are certain unifying concepts that consolidate it into a single, coherent field. Biology recognizes the cell as the basic unit of life, genes as. Phyletic evolution occurs within an established lineage (almost always present because there is little change in gene frequency in a species. This constancy in the gene frequency provides for STASIS in the population.). Evolutionary trends can be determined by evaluating the amount of change (morphometric change) per unit time.

In this paper, I summarize current trends in the study of plant defence and advocate for particular approaches that address long‐standing theory. Questions in the evolutionary ecology of plant defence are manifold, and addressing them requires a diversity of approaches. Nonetheless, in this paper I do not address strictly functional Cited by:

    The Evolutionary Biology of Plants is the most rewarding book on evolution I have read for years. It should not be read only by botany students assigned it as a textbook: I recommend it to anyone with a basic background in biology and a willingness to stretch their minds. "An accessible and practical overview of the demographic approaches that may offer insights into a range of important biological questions."—Marlène Gamelon and Hannah Froy, Trends in Ecology & Evolution "In their new book, [James R. Carey & Deborah A. Roach] provide an excellent introduction to the concepts and methods that form the foundation of biodemography.".

Current evolutionary approaches in archaeology must be distinguished from approaches based on cultural evolution, which were popular during the s and s heyday of the ‘New Archaeology.’ In the modern view, the same historical processes that generate diversity in the biological world also generate the material record of human existence.

Plant evolutionary ecology is a rapidly growing discipline which emphasizes that populations adapt and evolve not in isolation, but in relation to other species and abiotic environmental features such as climate.

Although it departs from traditional evolutionary and ecological fields of study, the field is connected to branches of ecology, genetics, botany, conservation, and to a number of. Organization: Experimental Plant Ecology: Book title: S., Kawano (ed.), Biological approaches and evolutionary trends in plantsCited by: New trends in evolutionary biology: biological, philosophical and social science perspectives In his book The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication Darwin used domestication as a model system to explore his theories about the role of natural selection in evolution.

Gregor Mendel used peas to trace the rules of heredity that. The occurrence, generality, and causes of large-scale evolutionary trends—directional changes over long periods of time—have been the subject of intensive study and debate in evolutionary science.

"The present book is intended as a progress report on [the] synthetic approach to evolution as it applies to the plant kingdom." With this simple statement, G. Ledyard Stebbins formulated the objectives of Variation and Evolution in Plants, published insetting forth for plants what became known as the "synthetic theory of evolution" or "the modern synthesis.".

Although they are among the most abundant of all living things and provide essential oxygen, food, and shelter to the animal kingdom, few books pay any attention to how and why plants evolved the wondrous diversity we see today.

In this richly illustrated and clearly written book, Karl J. Niklas provides the first comprehensive synthesis of modern evolutionary biology as it relates to plants.3/5(1).

Angiosperm paleobotany has widened its horizons, incorporated new techniques, developed new databases, and accepted new questions that can now focus on the evolution of the group. The fossil record of early flowering plants is now playing an active role in addressing questions of angiosperm phylogeny, angiosperm origins, and angiosperm radiations.

Three basic nodes of Cited by: Improbable Destinies: Fate, Chance, and the Future of Evolution by Jonathan B. Losos “Improbable Destinies” is an interesting exploration of evolutionary biology. Professor Jonathan B. Losos provides readers with a behind-the-scenes access to testing ideas about evolution, out in nature and in real time.4/5.

The biological significance of iridescence, a change in hue with viewing or illumination geometry, remains unknown. But on pp. –, Thomas White highlights a study that might indicate a role for iridescence in the diversification of flowering plants.

However, most books regarding evolutionary ecology focus on animals, creating a substantial need for scholarly literature with an emphasis on plants. Approaches to Plant Evolutionary Ecology is the first book to specifically explore the evolutionary characteristics of plants, filling the aforementioned gap in the literature on evolutionary ecology.

Evolutionary psychology is a theoretical approach in the social and natural sciences that examines psychological structure from a modern evolutionary perspective. It seeks to identify which human psychological traits are evolved adaptations – that is, the functional products of natural selection or sexual selection in human evolution.

Adaptationist thinking about physiological mechanisms. Abstract. Engineering approaches (nutrient removal, sediment pumping, hypolimnion oxygenation, alum treatments) may be most appropriate to deep lakes where the aim of restoration from eutrophication is simply to reduce the production and crop of one component, the by:   We celebrate this year the sesquicentennial anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species (1), one of the most important books ever written.

The two great themes of The Origin are descent, with modification, of diverse species from common ancestors, and natural selection, which Darwin proposed as the chief agent of modification. He remarked, in Chapter VI, that “it is generally Cited by: In artificial intelligence (AI), an evolutionary algorithm (EA) is a subset of evolutionary computation, a generic population-based metaheuristic optimization EA uses mechanisms inspired by biological evolution, such as reproduction, mutation, recombination, and selection.
