a few humans argue that matters equivalent to charity, equity, forgiveness and cooperation are evolutionary unfastened ends. yet as Harvard's celebrated evolutionary biologist Martin Nowak explains during this groundbreaking and debatable ebook, cooperation is imperative to the four-billion-year-old puzzle of life.

Cooperation is prime to how molecules within the primordial soup crossed the watershed that separates useless chemistry from biochemistry.

With wit and readability, Martin Nowak and the bestselling technological know-how author Roger Highfield make the case that cooperation, no longer festival, is the defining human trait. SuperCooperators will clarify our figuring out of evolution and human behaviour, and impress debate for years to come.

Example text

If, however, you artificially subdivide a homoplasy into so many parts that the covarying homoplasies outnumber the homologies in a data set, phylogenetic systematics (indeed all quantitative systematic methodologies) will take you very efficiently to the wrong phylogeny (Felsenstein 1978). Unfortunately, we cannot identify homologies and homoplasies a priori, so phylogenetic reconstruction must always be an open-ended process requiring constant re-examination of character descriptions against the resultant tree and constant additions of new data.

D) Unordered, polarized: information about direction, no information about pathway. Zero is the plesiomorphic state, but we do not know whether character modification moved from 0 to 1 to 2, from 0 to 2 to 1, or whether 1 and 2 arose independently from 0. and direction of evolutionary change: (1) ordered, unpolarized (fig. 7a); (2) unordered, unpolarized (fig. 7b); (3) ordered, polarized (fig. 7c); and (4) unordered, polarized (fig. 7d). Not surprisingly, ordering and polarizing multistate transformation series can become very complicated.

If you find this difficult to visualize, try working through the example by constructing a phylogenetic tree using toothpicks for branches, jujubes for nodes, and jelly beans for terminal taxa. The category of a taxon indicates its relative place (or rank) in the hierarchy of the classification. The Linnaean hierarchy is the most common taxonomic classification system. Within this scheme, the formation of category names occupying specific places in the hierarchy is governed by rules contained in various codes of nomenclature.
