Evolutionary Quantitative Genetics
by Stevan J. Arnold
I just got an announcement for this book, to be released in June. It looks interesting. Check out the table of contents.
Table of Contents
1. Selection on a Single Trait
2. Selection on Multiple Traits
3. The Selection Surface and Adaptive Landscape for a Single Trait
4. The Selection Surface and Adaptive Landscape for Multiple Traits
5. Inheritance of a Single Trait
6. Inheritance of Multiple Traits
7. Modularity, Performance, and Functional Complexes
8. Drift of a Single, Neutral Trait
9. Drift of Multiple, Neutral Traits
10. Response of a Single Trait to Selection
11. Response of Multiple Traits to Selection
12. Evolution of a Single Trait on a Stationary Adaptive Landscape
13. Evolution of Multiple Traits on a Stationary Adaptive Landscape
14. Trait Evolution on Dynamic Adaptive Landscapes
15. Evolution of Genetic Variance
16. Evolution of the G-Matrix on a Stationary Adaptive Landscape
17. Evolution of the G-Matrix on Dynamic Adaptive Landscapes
18. Evolution Along Selective Lines of Least Resistance
19. Speciation and Extinction of Lineages
20. Coevolution of Species with Trait-Based Interactions
21. Coevolution of Species with Density-Dependent Interactions
22. From Evolutionary Process to Pattern: A Synthesis

What if Eleanor Roosevelt had wings? -- Monty Python

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq

Well this looks a bit out there. I've never even heard of some of this stuff.
How do you evolve a G-Matrix on a Stationary Adaptive Landscape? What the hell is a Stationary Adaptive Landscape? And how many G-Spots can you evolve on a Dynamic Adaptive Landscape? And, yes, what the hell is a Dynamic Adaptive Landscape?
I see glimmers. Kinda Max Tegmark. The reality of reality is in the math. I do like having G-Spots together with evolution. They do go together.
I got a bit of reading to do. Thank you, Tany.
