Description

Presents an account of the evolutionary ecology of the guppy. This book shows how guppies provided some of the first evidence of sperm competition and sexual selection, and how they inform scientific thought on mating systems and cryptic choice. It is useful to students and researchers in the fields of behavioural ecology and evolutionary biology.

This book is a very good read and an excellent overview for undergraduates and beginning graduate students considering research on this or similar adaptive radiations.

Auteur
Anne Magurran is Professor of Ecology and Evolution at the University of St Andrews, UK.

Texte du rabat

Anne Magurran's account of the evolutionary ecology of the guppy integrates historical breakthroughs with new research in this fast-moving field. She reveals how guppies provided some of the first evidence of sperm competition and sexual selection, and how they continue to inform scientific thought on mating systems and cryptic choice. The book also covers the consequences of variation in predation risk, the potential for ecological speciation, and conservation issues, among many other topics. This timely synthesis of research into a species that has raised key questions in evolutionary ecology will be of great interest to graduate level students as well as professional researchers in the fields of behavioural ecology and evolutionary biology.
