Punctuated equilibria: an alternative to phyletic gradualism
Editorial introduction. Moving from populations to species. we recall that the process of speciation as seen through the hyperopic eyes of the paleontologist is an old and venerable theme. But theExpand
Exaptation-a missing term in the science of form
This work presents several examples of exaptation, indicating where a failure to concep- tualize such an idea limited the range of hypotheses previously available, and proposes a terminological solution to the problem of preadaptation. Expand
Critical Transitions in Nature and Society
“voluntary animal motion” interested physicians, scholars, and philosophers throughout history for a variety of purposes such as relating “voluntary motion” to the soul and understanding medicalExpand
Punctuated equilibria; the tempo and mode of evolution reconsidered
It is argued that virtually none of the examples brought forward to refute the model of punctuated equilibria can stand as support for phyletic gradualism; many are so weak and ambiguous that they only reflect the persistent bias for gradualism still deeply embedded in paleontological thought.

Pleistocene History of Bermuda
The Pleistocene rocks of Bermuda consist of shallow-water, beach, and intertidal marine biocalcarenites; eolianites; and red soils, displaying complex facies relationships. Eolianites grade laterallyExpand
Stochastic Models of Phylogeny and the Evolution of Diversity
Equilibrium models in population biology have demonstrated that accurate predictions of species diversity can be made without reference to particular taxa. We have extended the use of equilibriumExpand
