Beschreibung

First Edition, first printing. xv, 367 pp; illus. Original cloth. Near Fine, in an extremely sunned but otherwise near fine dust jacket. Kimura 'was a Japanese biologist best known for introducing the neutral theory of molecular evolution in 1968. He became one of the most influential theoretical population geneticists. He is remembered in genetics for his innovative use of diffusion equations to calculate the probability of fixation of beneficial, deleterious, or neutral alleles. Combining theoretical population genetics with molecular evolution data, he also developed the neutral theory of molecular evolution in which genetic drift is the main force changing allele frequencies. James F. Crow, himself a renowned population geneticist, considered Kimura to be one of the two greatest evolutionary geneticists, along with Gustave Malécot, after the great trio of the modern synthesis (Haldane, Wright, Fisher)' (Wikipedia).

Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Motoo Kimura, as founder of the neutral theory, is uniquely placed to write this book. He first proposed the theory in 1968 to explain the unexpectedly high rate of evolutionary change and very large amount of intraspecific variability at the molecular level that had been uncovered by new techniques in molecular biology.

'I have enjoyed the book immensely. It is argumentatively written, but always with fair presentation of the other side.' Bid Essays

'... a work of great significance, which should be read by everyone with a serious interest in evolution.' New Scientist

'... this book is a major contribution to the field.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
