Peter J. Mayhew, "Discovering Evolutionary Ecology: Bringing Together Ecology and Evolution" ISBN: 0198570600 | edition 2006 | PDF | 220 pages | 3 mb
Why are some kinds of organism species-rich and others species-poor? How do new species arise and why do some go extinct? Why do organisms grow and behave the way they do? This book provides an introduction to evolutionary ecology, the science that brings ecology and evolution together to help understand biological diversity. In a concise, readable format, Peter Mayhew covers the entire breadth of the subject, from life histories and the evolution of sex, to speciation and macroecology.
