About this book

This book presents 19 selected contributions to the 16th Evolutionary Biology Meeting, which took place in September 2012 in Marseilles. The aims of these annual meetings, which gather together leading evolutionary biologists and other scientists, are to promote the exchange of ideas and to encourage interdisciplinary collaborations. The first chapter deals with the history of a great discovery: The first experiments on ascidian and sea urchin egg fertilization. The remaining contributions are grouped under the following categories:

·       Evolutionary biology concepts

·       Exobiology and the origin of life

·       Evolutionary mechanisms

Offering an up-to-date overview of recent findings in the field of evolutionary biology, this book is an invaluable source of information for scientists, teachers and advanced students.

Reviews

“The reviewed volume is an important contribution to the understanding of the life origin and development. Evidently, biologists (including geneticists and astrobiologists) are its target audience, but palaeobiologists and geobiologists (professionals and students with very advanced knowledge) should not miss it, too. The book will give the latter a number of highly interesting ideas for further thoughts.” (Dmitry A. Ruban, Zentralblatt für Geologie und Paläontologie, Issue 5-6, 2014)
