Sixteen papers from the January 1994 National Academy of Science's Colloquium commemorating the 50th anniversary of the publication of G.G. Simpson's Tempo and Mode in Evolution . Contributors agree that Simpson was brilliant in recognizing paleontology's access to theory, and propose new domains for macroevolutionary theory. Subjects include early cellular evolution, changes in tempo of evolution between the Precambrian and Phanerozoic periods, species extinction, and morphological and genetic changes in human populations.
