Lane 2015 The vital question
|Lane N (2015) The vital question. Why is life the way it is?. WW Norton & Company 352.|
Abstract: My argument in this book is that there are in fact strong contraints on evolution - energetic constraints - which do make it possible to predict some of the most fundamental traits of life from first principles. Before we can address these constraints, we must consider why evolutionary biology is not predictive, and why these energetic constraints have passed largely unnoticed; indeed, why we have hardly even noticed there is a problem.
