Evolution and Christian faith reflections of an evolutionary biologist by Joan Roughgarden ( )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"I'm an evolutionary biologist and a Christian," states Stanford professor Joan Roughgarden. From that perspective, she offers an elegant, deeply satisfying reconciliation of the theory of evolution and the wisdom of the Bible. The result is an accessible and intelligent context for a Christian vision of the world that embraces science.--[book jacket]

Competititon and theory in community ecology by Joan Roughgarden ( )
1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This essay is about competition as an ecological and evolutionary force and about theory in community ecology, particularly competition theory. It responds to Connel (1980), Strong et al. (1979) and Connor and Simberloff (1979) (who criticize the evidence for competition and the theoretical attention that competition has received.) These criticisms imply that competition theory, including its extension to the coevolution of competitors, is irrelevant to natural processes and is unworthy of testing regardless of whether the testing is feasible. As someone active in community theory, I wish to explain why these criticism are unfounded and what the nature anf function of theory is in community ecology. The essay is in three parts. The first is philosophical and concerns how one establishes an empirical fact in science. The essay begins with a philosophical discussions because the criticisms spring from what I feel are untenable positions in the philosophy of science. The second part detais some serious technical flaws in the proposals of the critics. The third is an account of what theory in community ecology is, what it is trying to do, how it should be judged and what some of the sources are of misundestanding between theorethical and empirical points of view
