The neutral theory of molecular evolution by Motoo Kimura( Book )

50 editions published between 1983 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Motoo Kimura, as founder of the neutral theory, is uniquely placed to write this book. He first proposed the theory in 1968 to explain the unexpectedly high rate of evolutionary change and very large amount of intraspecific variability at the molecular level that had been uncovered by new techniques in molecular biology. The theory - which asserts that the great majority of evolutionary changes at the molecular level are caused not by Darwinian selection but by random drift of selectively neutral mutants - has caused controversy ever since. This book is the first comprehensive treatment of this subject and the author synthesises a wealth of material - ranging from a historical perspective, through recent molecular discoveries, to sophisticated mathematical arguments - all presented in a most lucid manner

This proceedings volume collects a selection of the research and/or survey papers presented at a workshop by biologists and probabilists, and thus provides an account of the latest developments in their respective fields, with particular emphasis on population genetics, neurophysiology and stochastic and other mathematical methods
Population genetics, molecular evolution, and the neutral theory : selected papers by Motoo Kimura( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Motoo Kimura revolutionized evolutionary biology with his random drift theory of molecular evolution - the neutral theoryand his groundbreaking theoretical work in population genetics. This volume collects fifty-seven of Kimura's most important papers and covers forty years of his diverse and original contributions to our understanding of how genetic variation affects evolutionary change."--BOOK JACKET. "Kimura's neutral theory, first presented in 1968, challenged the notion that natural selection was the sole directive force in evolution. Arguing that mutations and random drift account for variations at the level of DNA and amino acids, Kimura advanced a theory of evolutionary change that was strongly challenged at first and that eventually earned the respect and interest of evolutionary biologists throughout the world. This volume includes the seminal papers on the neutral theory, as well as many others that cover such topics as population structure, variable selection intensity, the genetics of quantitative characters, inbreeding systems, and reversibility of changes by random drift."--BOOK JACKET. "Background essays by Naoyuki Takahata examine Kimura's work in relation to its effects and recent developments in each area. This book will stand as a valuable reference for students and professionals in evolutionary biology for years to come."--BOOK JACKET
