The first quantity of Evolutionary Bio/ogy was once released 11 years in the past. considering that point 11 volumes and one complement have seemed. As acknowledged in previous prefaces, we're carrying on with the point of interest of this sequence on severe experiences, commentaries, unique papers, and controversies in evoluĀ­ tionary biology. lt is our target to submit papers basically of larger size than mostly released through society journals and quarterlies. We hence invite colleagues to put up chapters that fall in the concentration and criteria of Evolutionary Bio/ogy. The Editors vii Contents 1.
