    Department of Biology, University of Maryland, College Park 20742, USA
    Heredity (Edinb) 82:267-75. 1999
    ..These results suggest that colonization of a marginal new environment could be facilitated by enhanced rates of cannibalism. The possible interplay between cannibalism and physiological adaptation to a new environment is discussed...

    Evolution 54:1626-37. 2000
    ..Although this variation suggests that a generalized pea aphid could evolve, such generalists are not seen in field collections of these populations...

    Department of Biology, University of Maryland, College Park 20742, USA
    Ann N Y Acad Sci 950:225-40. 2001
    ..After presenting the basics of the evolutionary process, I discuss the factors that determine the outcome of evolution, the role of key innovations and extinction in evolution, and whether the evolution of human life is inevitable...
