The November 20 Readings in Complexity features Tim Linksvayer on the Price Equation. This is the last in the mini-series on multilevel selection (see below).
Throughout the fall, the CSDC is hosting a series of informal seminars and discussions on Multilevel Selection in anticipation of a multilevel selection workshop in the spring of 2008.
This fall series is designed for non-specialists and will provide an overview of critical issues and perspectives in the field. Suggested readings accompany most of the presentations. All events are held in Room 401 of ISTB-1.
