Product Description

Review


Understanding mating strategies and the allocation of resources to male versus female reproduction has long been a major goal of evolutionary studies. In this comprehensive synthesis, West makes several important contributions to the field of evolutionary biology. . . . Because the work primarily focuses on how natural selection shapes sex allocation for given sex determination systems, sex allocation is proven an important phenomenon for studying adaptation. This thorough conceptual perspective, blending theory and data, summarizes sex allocation theory and how different areas are applied to different organisms. -- Choice

"After reading this book, I now have greater confidence in my understanding of where this field stands and where future research would most profitably be directed. This book will unquestionably benefit students and professional scientists who are seeking either a basic introduction to sex allocation biology or a comprehensive sourcebook that integrates the major issues of the field. Additionally, this book would serve as an excellent resource for specialized graduate-level courses in evolutionary biology. Overall, this is an outstanding and comprehensive book that extends beyond the topic of sex allocation and is an essential tool for anyone with a serious interest in behavioral or evolutionary ecology."--Daniel A. Warner, "Integrative and Comparative Biology"

"[T]his book is worth taking the time to read and think about whether you are new to the field of sex allocation, think you know it all already, or are mainly interested in the evolution of other social and reproductive traits. It might influence the way you think about your own research and if nothing else you will learn some cool facts about the impressive subtleties of sex allocation in the natural world."--Suzanne H. Alonzo, "Evolution"

From the Back Cover

"West has great command of a vast body of theory and empirical work, but this book does more than synthesize existing literature. West explains what has been accomplished, where the field has failed to clear things up, and what needs to be done. Anyone working on sex allocation can start with this book and get a firm grasp of the concepts, experiments, comparative observations, and key outstanding questions."--Steven A. Frank, University of California, Irvine

"This is a great book. It captures the excitement of sex-allocation research, the significant progress that has been made, and the areas that have been relatively neglected. West does a great job of showing the tight connection between evolutionary theory and empirical testing, and the ways both can mutually inspire each other. He deals with all the major issues and guides the reader through the entire field."--Jacobus J. Boomsma, University of Copenhagen
