Summary
"No published volume has yet critically discussed the past, present state, and future prospect of the Adaptive Landscape in evolutionary biology. This volume brings together prominent historians of science, philosophers, ecologists, and evolutionary biologists, with the aim of discussing the state of the art of the Adaptive Landscape from several different perspectives."--Back cover
