New publication – Book Review: Life history theory coming of age A Primer of Life Histories – Ecology, Evolution, and Application by Jeffrey A. Hutchings, Oxford University Press, 2021

By Leif AsbjørnVøllestad in Trends in Ecology & Evolution


Jeffrey Hutchings has called his book ‘A Primer of Life Histories’. Merriam-Webster has various definitions of the word ‘primer’. It can mean a small introductory book on a subject, a short informative piece of text, or a small book for teaching children to read. The book is indeed relatively small (just passing 200 pages), but maybe Hutchings was a little modest when deciding on the title?
