Randomness in Evolution
John Tyler Bonner
“John Tyler Bonner, a distinguished develop-mental biologist, has long argued that a majordriving orce in the evolution o complexity isnatural selection or large size. Here he takes aradically dierent view to explain the diversityo orm among eukaryotic microorganisms:randomness, not selection, rules their lives. This stimulating and provocative theme isexplored with ideas rom a variety o elds.It simultaneously introduces students to thenature o a debate on the causes o diversity.”—Peter R. Grant, coauthor o 
How and Why Species Multiply: The Radiation o Darwin’s Finches
John Tyler Bonner, one o our most distinguished and insightul biolo-gists, here challenges a central tenet o evolutionary biology. In thisconcise, elegantly written book, he makes the bold and provocativeclaim that some biological diversity may be explained by somethingother than natural selection.
