The parson-naturalist long played a respected role in English scientific culture. By the close of the 19th century this tradition had almost disappeared due, in part, to increasing educational standards and professional responsibilities. William Dallinger illustrates these challenges to the earlier tradition. Dallinger, a Wesleyan minister, came from nowhere to enter the portals of the scientific elite, yet found himself on the fringes of the scientific research community during the later part… Expand
Field, lab and museum : the practice and place of life science in Yorkshire, 1870-1904
Later Victorian Yorkshire was home to a vigorous community of life science practitioners. In studying them, I reassess three dichotomies familiar to the contextualist historian of Victorian science:Expand
What did Darwin say about microbes, and how did microbiology respond?
Despite his interests in microbial phenomena, Darwin's impact on microbiological thinking of the late nineteenth century was negligible and this limited response may be connected to today's assumptions about Darwin's neglect of microbes. Expand
What is adaptation by natural selection? Perspectives of an experimental microbiologist
The development of the burgeoning field of experimental microbial evolution is traced, an experiment with Escherichia coli is described that has been running for almost 30 years, and other experiments in which natural selection has led to interesting dynamics and adaptive changes in microbial populations are highlighted.

Experimental Illumination of Comprehensive Fitness Landscapes: A Dissertation
A high throughput method to iteratively mutagenize regions of essential genes in yeast and subsequently analyze individual mutant fitness termed EMPIRIC is developed, and the bimodal distribution of fitness effects is found to be remarkably consistent with near-neutral theory. Expand
Microbial experimental evolution.
Fitness and adaptation need not be matters of qualitative speculation, but are quantitatively measurable variables in these systems that allow the quantification of heterogeneity in responses to imposed selection and thereby statistical distinction between changes that are systematic responses to the selective regimen and those that are specific to individual populations.

The Effects of Competition and Ecological Opportunity on Adaptation and Diversification
This thesis confirms that intraspecific competition drives adaptive diversification, while the effects of interspecific competition are varied, and shows that ecological opportunity drives differences in the degree of parallel evolution at the phenotypic and genotypic level. Expand

Stimulation of Bovicin HC5 Production and Selection of Improved Bacteriocin-Producing Streptococcus equinus HC5 Variants
Results presented here indicate that ALE is a promising strategy for selecting strains of lactic acid bacteria with increased production of bacteriocins and appears to be associated with changes in the cell envelope of the Adapted Strep. Expand
