Summary:
"Coevolution drives biological diversification, structures ecological communities, and promotes major evolutionary transitions such as the evolution of sexual reproduction. Introduction to Coevolutionary Theory develops the mathematical models and key theoretical results upon which our current understanding of coevolution rests.
