In recent years, scientists have realized that evolution can occur on timescales much shorter than the "long lapse of ages" emphasized by Darwin—in fact, evolutionary change is occurring all around us all the time. This book provides an authoritative and accessible introduction to eco-evolutionary dynamics, a cutting-edge new field that seeks to unify evolution and ecology into a common conceptual framework focusing on rapid and dynamic environmental and evolutionary change.

Andrew Hendry covers key aspects of evolution, ecology, and their interactions. Topics range from natural selection, adaptive divergence, ecological speciation, and gene flow to population and community dynamics, ecosystem function, plasticity, and genomics. Hendry evaluates conceptual and methodological approaches, and draws on empirical data from natural populations—including those in human-disturbed environments—to tackle a number of classic and emerging research questions. He also discusses exciting new directions for future research at the intersection of ecology and evolution.

An invaluable guide for students and researchers alike, Eco-evolutionary Dynamics reveals how evolution and ecology interact strongly on short timescales to shape the world we see around us.

Andrew P. Hendry is professor in the Department of Biology and the Redpath Museum at McGill University. He is the coeditor of Microevolution: Rate, Pattern, Process and Evolution Illuminated: Salmon and Their Relatives.


"This book provides a conceptually broad overview of the major themes in this rapidly emerging field of study. . . . [It is] a useful reference for ecologists and evolutionary biologists at diverse career stages."--Eric P. Palkovacs, Ecology

"An excellent overview."--Fanie Pelletier, Ecology

"[A] thought-provoking book."--Anna Kuparinen, Trends in Ecology and Evolution

"This is an outstanding research textbook, which should also be useful in teaching the highest level undergraduate courses. . . . An excellent, and timely, synthesis of the growing body of work on interactions between ecology and evolution."--Andrew MacColl, Quarterly Review of Biology


"In the strict sense, ‘eco-evolutionary dynamics' refers to feedback between genetic changes in populations and their ecological features such as abundance. Andrew Hendry treats this and much more in an authoritative introduction to a wide range of topics at the interface of evolutionary genetics and population ecology. Everyone interested in evolutionary ecology will find his book highly rewarding."--Douglas J. Futuyma, Stony Brook University, State University of New York

"A masterful, comprehensive synthesis treating most of today's hot topics in ecology and evolution from the perspective of how ecology affects evolution and, especially, how evolution affects ecology, often remarkably quickly. Hendry depicts myriad impacts at the population, community, and ecosystem levels with well-chosen examples and elegant models that elucidate even complicated and indirect pathways. Eco-evolutionary Dynamics is the last word on a subject at the leading edge of exciting research in both fields."--Daniel Simberloff, University of Tennessee
