Putting evolutionary biology back in the ecological theatre: a demographic framework mapping genes to communities

Coulson, T ; Benton, T G ; Lundberg, Per LU ; Dall, S R X and Kendall, B E (2006) In Evolutionary Ecology Research 8(7). p.1155-1171
Abstract
Question: How can we link genotypic, phenotypic, individual, population, and community levels of organization so as to illuminate general ecological and evolutionary processes and provide a framework for a quantitative, integrative evolutionary biology?

Framework: We introduce an evolutionary framework that maps different levels of biological diversity onto one another. We provide (1) an overview of maps linking levels of biological organization and (2) a guideline of how to analyse the complexity of relationships from genes to population growth.



Method: We specify the appropriate levels of biological organization for responses to selection, for opportunities for selection, and for selection itself. We map... (More)
