In this book, Eric Charnov uses ideas about symmetry, invariance, and scaling laws to explore aspects of population dynamics and the evolution of male and female life histories. Charnov's work is internationally known and will attract great interest among postgraduate students and researchersin ecology, evolution, behaviour, and many other fields within organismal biology.
Eric L. Charnov is at University of Utah.
