D. HamiltonHistoryBiographyIn this illuminating and moving biography, Ullica Segerstrale captures Hamilton's extraordinary life and work, revealing a man of immense intellectual curiosity, an uncompromising truth-seeker, a naturalist and jungle explorer. Segerstrale's detailed research reveals the internal tensions and conflicts behind Hamilton's creative genius, and the narrative is peppered with personal anecdotes of this eccentric yet brilliant scientist. The book shows how Hamilton throughout his life was a man against the grain, whose iconoclastic views challenged the scientific and medical establishment--and even caused controversy at the Vatican. In fact, Hamilton was so against the grain that his early career was a classic case of misunderstood genius, whose work was invariably attacked upon publication and only later proclaimed a major breakthrough. Among his insights was that what matters in evolution is not the survival of the individual but of the survival of its genes, an idea that solved the longstanding problem of animal altruism that vexed even Darwin himself. He also proposed the well-known Red Queen theory of the evolution of sex and he helped open up many new fields (including sociobiology), shaping much of our current understanding of evolution --314ocn800083452book20070.73Segerstråle, Ullica Christina OlofsdotterNature's Oracle. ; A Life of W.

Hamilton11ocn779760473visu2009Darwin's dangerous ideaThe first in a very informative three-part series in which Andrew Marr looks in depth at all aspects of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection. This part traces the beginnings of Darwin's discovery including his encounters with Fuegians and first inklings towards the idea of common ancestry. Influences on Darwin such as Thomas Malthus' research on human population, are covered. We hear too about the influence of Darwin's theory on thinkers such as Nietzsche who declared 'God is dead.' Acts of immorality and atrocity could be put down to Darwinian motivation; Vernon Kellogg wrote on this in relation to the behaviour of German soldiers during the 1914 war. There was a backlash against Darwin's theory; William Jennings Bryan, for instance, produced The Butler Act which outlawed evolutionary theory from schools in Tennessee. Freud applied Darwinism to his theory of the unconscious and Jack Haldane began to outline a theory of genetics. Bill Hamilton and George Price searched for a genetic basis for good and evil; what they discovered however led to Price comitting suicide11ocn742040493art19980.10Hamilton, William Donald: evolutionary biologyBiographyDirectories11ocn051232603visu20010.47The Secrets of the cloudsBiographyWorld-renowned evolutionary biologist Bill Hamilton stands beside Darwin as one of the subject's most original thinkers. He has transformed our view of evolution and man's place within the global ecology. Secrets of the Clouds profiles this remarkable scientist and explores his unique contribution to our understanding of nature11ocn779835028book2000Professor W.D.

Part one - The struggle for existence: This part provides an outline to the basis of Darwin's theory of evolution and contextualises his research historically. We also hear about the gaps in his understanding of the process of natural selection and his critical opponents. Part 2 - Darwin resurgent: Contains accounts of how Darwin's theory of natural selection was brought back to life and some of its gaps filled. Outlines are given of the important theories of Weismann, Mendel and Fisher (who supported a theory of genetics). Archival footage of zoologist Bernard Kettlewell describing his research into the evolution of the peppered moth is shown as is the discovery of the fabulous mutations of the African sicklets fish. The emergence of the theory of Neo-Darwinian Synthesis is described. Bill Hamilton's research into social insects provided a theory of altruism co-existing as part of the theory of natural selection - this came to be known as sociobiology. Part 3 - Tree of life: The focus here moves to Ernst Haeckel's research into embryonic development which sought to bypass fossil-based evidence in determining evolution. He wrote the first entirely encompassing family trees of life based on patterns of embryonic development and included, at the beginning of life, an imagined beast, the Gastraeaden. The discovery of DNA brought new light to the theory of evolution and genomic sequences allow for more accurated methods of dating the history of every living thing than Darwin could have imagined. Increasingly complex fossil records can also show us how the development of previously mysterious creatures such as whales came about - whales are now known to be close ancestors to the hippopotamus. DNA research to sequence human evolutionary history is discussed. Part 4 - Endless forms: This part focuses on evolutionary developmental biology. We look at the realm of genetically inherited diseases - in particular an unusual genetic eye condition, aniridia, which provides a perfect example of how such conditions can be linked to animals which share our genetic inheritance. Part 5 - The evolution of evolution: Here focus is towards the future. Darwin's theories are compared to more predictive theories such as those of Newton and the programme leaves us with the question: can we make a predictive theory of evolution?11ocn779835030book2000Professor William HamiltonDied Mar. 7 2000+-+4188503465+-+4188503465Fri Mar 21 15:46:02 EDT 2014batch18335
