Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Pursuit of Complexity: The Utility of Biodiversity from an Evolutionary Perspective presents the foreword and the table of contents. The book reviews the most common arguments for conserving biodiversity, and explores how the processes involved in the development of the universe led to the origin of life and the evolution of biodiversity. The crux of this book lies in laying bare the underlying evolutionary mechanisms and conditions for the emergence and development of biodiversity. The book provides a framework for answering the more practical questions in future studies.
