•  What is the topic of this review? Have recent experimental findings in evolutionary biology concerning the transmission of inheritance opened the way to a reintegration of physiology with evolutionary biology? •  What advances does it highlight? The answer is yes, and that this requires a new synthesis between evolutionary theory and experimental physiology. 
New trends in evolutionary biology: biological, philosophical and social science perspectives
This issue of Interface Focus publishes articles based on presentations to a joint Discussion Meeting of the British Academy and the Royal Society held at Carlton House Terrace on 7–9 November 2016.
Evolutionary physiology at 30+: Has the promise been fulfilled?: Advances in Evolutionary Physiology.
TLDR
It is argued that evolutionary physiology has yet to reach its full potential, and new avenues that may lead to unexpected advances are proposed that could lead to novel understanding of organismal biology.
Evolutionary Biology Redux

    Perspectives in biology and medicine
  • 2013
This article offers a novel, enlightened concept for determining the mechanism of evolution. It is based on homeostasis, which distinguishes life from non-life and as such is the universal mechanism
Why an extended evolutionary synthesis is necessary
TLDR
A renewed and extended theoretical synthesis is advocated, advocated by several authors in this issue, which overcomes many of the limitations of traditional gene-centric explanation and entails a revised understanding of the role of natural selection in the evolutionary process.
Evolutionary biology today and the call for an extended synthesis
TLDR
The proposition that phenotypic plasticity may engender new adaptive phenotypes that are later genetically assimilated or accommodated is theoretically plausible; it may be most likely when the new phenotype is not truly novel, but is instead a slight extension of a reaction norm already shaped by natural selection in similar environments.
What Future for Evolutionary Biology? Response to Commentaries on “The Illusions of the Modern Synthesis”
The extensive range and depth of the twenty commentaries on my target article (Noble, 2021) confirms that something has gone deeply wrong in biology. A wide range of biologists has more than met my
An Evolutionary Perspective on Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
A new subject arises in the west-evolutionary medicine which combine the concepts of evolutionary biology and medical science, to study which, four-dimensional space-time evolution (emphasize the time factor) should be considered.
1 PLASTICITY , COMPLEXITY , AND THE INDIVIDUAL
TLDR
The first half of the 20th century was a pivotal time for biology, when theoretical and empirical work in population genetics reconciled Mendelian inheritance with natural selection, demonstrated that microevolution and macroevolution were compatible, and elevated Darwin's views of descent with modification and evolution by natural selection as unifying theories in biology.
How Are Biology Concepts Used and Transformed?
TLDR
This chapter focuses on concepts as units and organizers of scientific knowledge, which are more fine-grained units in that a scientific theory contains many individual concepts.
What is life? And what might be said of the role of behaviour in its evolution?
TLDR
An introduction and overview are provided for a special issue of the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society concerning the role of behaviour in evolution, where Behaviour, in its broadest sense, is seen as both the expression and mediator of organismic agency, and must play a key role in the processes of evolution.

SUMMARY In this commentary, we provide a personal overview of the conceptual history of microbiology and molecular biology over the course of the last hundred years, emphasizing the relationship of
Evolution: A Developmental Approach
TLDR
Professor Wallace Arthur's latest book Evolution: A Developmental Approach sits between the traditional population approach to evolutionary theory and the molecular approach to provide a complete view on the evolutionary development of the authors' world.
Evo–devo: extending the evolutionary synthesis
TLDR
This essay identifies major theoretical themes of current evo–devo research and highlights how its results take evolutionary theory beyond the boundaries of the Modern Synthesis.
Nongenetic Inheritance and Its Evolutionary Implications
TLDR
This framework shows that, by decoupling phenotypic change from the genotype, nongenetic inheritance can circumvent the limitations of genetic inheritance and thereby influence population dynamics and alter the fitness landscape.
Evolutionary Genetics
TLDR
Although this book is intended primarily for advanced undergraduates in the biological sciences, the scope and style of its treatment make it a very suitable source of evolutionary enlightenment for any potential reader with the necessary background knowledge to understand its contents.
