    The book is written in a modular format so that theories and traditions can be examined in any order, and in many diverse combinations. If desired, only the contemporary theories can be read without attention to their historical contexts, or the reverse is true if readers want to understand the historical origins of a particular theoretical. Rapid or Contemporary evolution One topic of interest to toxicologists, particularly ecotoxicologists and ecologists is the potential for rapid evolution. Populations that evolve in a few generations rather than over hundreds of thousands or millions of years.

      Contemporary Management by Jones and George distinguishes itself through its authorship, comprehensive, current contents, rich and relevant examples and applications and experiential exercises provided in every single chapter.

The modern synthesis recognizes several different possible mechanisms of evolution. Darwin's theory relied on natural selection as the only known mechanism. One of these different mechanisms, genetic drift, could even match the importance of natural selection in the overall view of : Heather Scoville.
