Overview

This volume consists of ten expository articles describing processes of evolution via natural selection in shastic environments. Maintaining an elementary level throughout,
the authors describe the latest researches in the mathematical theory of adaptation in shastic environments. Topicsdiscussed include: history of past research; fitness optimization criteria; environmental and demographic variability; life-history evolution;
evolutionarily stable strategies; population dynamics of age-structured populations; phenotypic plasticity and imperfect information; evolution of behavioral adaptations;
methods of quantifying environmental predictability;
genetics of conditional strategies; coexistence of multiple life-history strategies; and adaptive learning.
