Changing Scenes in the Natural Sciences, 1776-1976: A Symposium to Commemorate the Bicent. of the U.S.: Special Pub. of The Academy of Natural Sciences of Phila., No. 12
Clyde E. Goulden (ed)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
This book is the result of a symposium held in Phila., PA, in April 1976, on the bicentennial of Amer. independence. It reviewed the contributions of evolution, systematics, quantitative genetics, ecology, and sociobiology to our understanding of the natural world. The papers identify fundamental shortcomings existing within each discipline. They suggest a need for an integration of these sciences and a more thorough testing within each discipline of the theory of evolution by means of natural selection. Papers are organized by theme: The Changing Scenes; The Influence of the New World on the Study of Natural History; Evolution and Systematics; Population Genetics; Terrestrial Ecology; Aquatic Ecology; and Behavior and Sociobiology.
