In this book, Eric Charnov uses ideas about symmetry, invariance, and scaling laws to explore aspects of population dynamics and the evolution of male and female life histories. Charnov's work is internationally known and will attract great interest among postgraduate students and researchers in ecology, evolution, behaviour, and many other fields within organismal biology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Charnov's approach is daring, and remarkably successful in producing quantitative predictions that fit the comparative data. It is a first-rate contribution to life-history evolution. The book will undoubtedly play an important role in stimulating thought about where to go next in studies of life-history evolution.' Brian Charlesworth, University of Chicago, Nature
'Charnov's approach will be stimulating and provocative to those willing to consider his arguments carefully ... well worth the effort.' Robert E. Ricklefs, Science, Vol. 264 April 1994
