Wicken, Jeffrey S.
This groundbreaking work approaches evolution as an expression of physical laws and thermodynamic theory. It explores the relationship between the molecular processes of evolution and the physical laws that govern biological organization, seeking to explain how the ability to change developed in the earliest organisms and how it is perpetuated today. Dr. Wicken explains how genetic information is organized, how it evolves, and how the chemical and physical properties of the genetic molecules control the type and extent of change possible. With broad implications for scientific methodology, the work outlines a research program that fuses thermodynamic and Darwinian concepts, and integrates literature on the origin of life with evolutionary theory within the context of developmental biology and ecology. Biologists, geneticists, chemists, physicists, and philosophers of science interested in evolution will find this book to be stimulating reading.Wicken, Jeffrey S. is the author of 'Evolution, Thermodynamics, and Information', published 1987 under ISBN 9780195043181 and ISBN 0195043189.
