            Why Sex Matters: A Darwinian Look at Human Behavior - Revised Edition (EPUB ebook – Revised)

            By Low, Bobbi S.

            Bobbi Low ranges from ancient Rome to modern America, from the Amazon to the Arctic, and from single-celled organisms to international politics to show that many questions about human behaviour largely come down to evolution and sex.

            The Functional Consequences of Biodiversity: Empirical Progress and Theoretical Extensions (MPB-33) (PDF ebook – Core Textbook)

            Edited by Tilman, David; Kinzig, Ann P.; Pacala, Stephen

            Ecosystems provide food, fuel, and drinkable water, regulate local and regional climate, and recycle needed nutrients, among other things. This volume synthesizes empirical studies on the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning and extends that knowledge using... a novel and coordinated set of models and theoretical approaches.

            Principles of Animal Locomotion (EPUB ebook – Course Book)

            By Alexander, R. McNeill

            Provides an overview of how animals run, walk, jump, crawl, swim, soar, hover, and fly. This book introduces energetics and optimality as basic principles. It tackles each of the major modes by which animals move on land, in water, and through air. It explains the mechanisms invo...lved and the physical and biological forces shaping those mechanisms.

            Why Men Won't Ask for Directions: The Seductions of Sociobiology (PDF ebook – Course Book)

            By Francis, Richard C.

            Exploring various sexual phenomena, this book exposes fundamental defects in sociobiology and evolutionary psychology, tracing them to their misguided emphasis on why questions at the expense of how questions.

            The Unified Neutral Theory of Biodiversity and Biogeography (MPB-32) (EPUB ebook – Core Textbook)

            By Hubbell, Stephen P.

            Despite its importance and the threat of its global crash, biodiversity is poorly understood both empirically and theoretically. This work presents a neutral, general theory to explain the origin, maintenance and loss of biodiversity in a biogeographical context.

            The Evolution of Individuality (PDF ebook – Course Book)

            By Buss, Leo W.

            Leo Buss expounds a general theory of development through a simple hierarchical extension of the synthetic theory of evolution. He perceives innovations in development to have evolved in ancestral organisms where the germ line was not closed to genetic variation arising during th...e course of ontogeny.Originally published in 1988.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

            Ecological Genetics
             

            Ecological Genetics (PDF ebook)

            Edited by Real, Leslie

            This volume represents work by five distinguished ecological geneticists, offering an up-to-date source for theoretical concepts and experiments in an exciting field. Combining ecological fieldwork and laboratory genetics, ecological genetics examines the adjustments and adaptati...ons of wild populations to their environments. Articles focus on important interactions between genetics and population ecology, delving into issues like gene flow and migration, population differentiation, the maintenance of genetic variation, and the demographic and spatial structure of populations. The contributors--Janis Antonovics, Michael Lynch, Montgomery Slatkin, Joseph Travis, and Sara Via--emphasize the importance of population size and structure, interaction between local selection and genetic drift, and an expanded phenotype including quantitative as well as qualitative characters. This new form of ecological genetics focuses on large-scale geographic variation in demographic and genetic dynamics among small, partially isolated populations and will prove extremely valuable in natural resource management and in rare or endangered species conservation.Originally published in 1994.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
