About this book series

The peer-reviewed Springer book series Interdisciplinary Evolution Research provides a scholarly platform for rigorous scientific, epistemological, and educational investigations into biological, sociocultural, and technological evolution. Volumes focus on well-defined evolutionary problems that benefit from inter- and transdisciplinary analysis with the goal to develop unified jargon and methodology thereby enabling the crossing of disciplinary boundaries.
