Whither evolutionary game theory?

Posted by mcnickle on 23 Jan 2013 at 19:04 GMT

An outstanding summary of contemporary issues surrounding the study of proximate mechanisms of evolution. The authors also highlight the need to emphasize natural history, which is the ultimate cause of evolution by natural selection. Evolutionary game theory provides one more set of tools for exploring this evolution by natural selection. I suspect that evolutionary game theory will also continue to provide insights into evolutionary biology into the 21st century!
