This text surveys the field of evolutionary ecology using experimental, descriptive and comparartive data. It draws on a diversity of examples from both the animal and plant kingdoms and from terrestial and aquatic environments.

The following topics are covered: the scope and evoutionary ecology; selection, fitness and adaptation; the genetic basis of evolutionary change; predicting the outcome of adaptation; habitat and life history; life cycles; reproductive effort; the ecology of sex; the ecological context of speciation; coevolution; and the conservation of genetic diversity.
