Evolution : the modern synthesis by Julian Huxley( Book )

9 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic work by Julian Huxley, first published in 1942, captured and synthesized all that was then known about evolutionary biology and gave a name to the Modern Synthesis, the conceptual structure underlying the field for most of the twentieth century. Many considered Huxley's book a popularization of the ideas then emerging in evolutionary biology, but in fact Evolution: The Modern Synthesis is a work of serious scholarship that is also accessible to the general educated public. It is a book in the intellectual tradition of Charles Darwin and Thomas Henry Huxley--Julian Huxley's grandfather, known for his energetic championing of Darwin's ideas. A contemporary reviewer called Evolution: The Modern Synthesis the outstanding evolutionary treatise of the decade, perhaps the century. This definitive edition brings one of the most important and successful scientific books of the twentieth century back into print. It includes the entire text of the 1942 edition, Huxley's introduction to the 1963 second edition (which demonstrates his continuing command of the field), and the introduction to the 1974 third edition, written by nine experts (many of them Huxley's associates) from different areas of evolutionary biology

Advances in parasitology by John R Baker( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Poulin, at the University of Otago, has tackled the important question of the evolution of life history strategies. Parasites present a fascinating array of simple and complex life histories which should provide excellent examples for testing life history theories. However, while this is an active field of evolutionary ecology for free - living organisms, much recent research has not so far been repeated for parasitic organisms, which can have very different strategies (e.g. short or long prepatency and patency periods, low or high fecundity and growth rates etc.). Another important factor is the pressure exerted by the host
