Natural selection is an immense and important subject yet there have been few attempts to summarize its effects on natural populations and fewer still which discuss the problems of working with natural selection in the wild These are the purposes of John Endler s book In it he discusses the methods and problems involved in the demonstration and measurement of natural selection presents the critical evidence for its existence and places it in an evolutionary perspective br br br Professor Endler finds that there are a remarkable number of direct demonstrations of selection in a wide variety of animals and plants The distribution of observed magnitudes of selection in natural populations is surprisingly broad and it overlaps extensively the range of values found in artificial selection He argues that the common assumption that selection is usually weak in natural populations is no longer tenable but that natural selection is only one component of the process of evolution natural selection can explain the change of frequencies of variants but not their origins, No description available, No description available, This volume brings together evidence that animal behaviour varies geograhically and explores some of the richness in phenomena interpretations and problems which can arise in such studies The authors summarize advances in the field to date evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches and give a clear and balanced overview of this area
