    Evolution in organisms occurs through changes in heritable traits—the inherited characteristics of an organism. In humans, for example, eye colour is an inherited characteristic and an individual might inherit the "brown-eye trait" from one of their parents. Inherited traits are controlled by genes and the complete set of genes within an organism's genome (genetic material) is called .   In line with my previous posts on the blog (Is there a natural way to behave?& Sustainable behavior – a logic of irrationality), I want to talk about behavioral aspects of the use of natural resources many people who are not well acquainted with the science of natural resource management, it might seem non-intuitive why the role of norms, culture . Theories that claim the ecological crisis is a cultural rather than a social problem can also confuse the issue. Hierarchical societies had begun despoiling of the planet long before the emergence of modern science, 'linear' rationality, and 'industrial society', the cultural causes most often invoked by the ecology movement. The New Republic of the Heart non-profit organization was inspired and is guided by the life’s work of Terry Patten crafted in his book A New Republic of the Heart: An ethos for revolutionaries — A guide to inner work for holistic change “A New Republic of the Heart should be required reading for all humans over the age of ”.

Any scientific discipline needs a theoretical framework to guide its development and to sharpen the questions its researchers pursue. In biology, evolution is the grand theoretical framework, and an his­ torical perspective is necessary to understand present-day biological conditions.

The book is written for a non-expert audience, providing accessible and convenient content that will appeal to numerous readers across the interdisciplinary field.

In this time of growing ecological and economic crisis, John Bellamy Foster’s voice stands out like no other. In his new book, The Ecological Revolution, he demonstrates that questions of ecology cannot be separated from questions of economics, and that building a truly sustainable future means putting people and the planet before profit.

Evolution of social systems. Social evolution is also often regarded (especially, in the field of social anthropology) as evolution of social systems and structures. InHarvard biologist E. Wilson, a founder of modern sociobiology, proposed a new theory of social evolution.

He argued that the traditional approach of focusing on eusociality had limitations, which he. “The Evolution of Primate Societies is certain to become an essential reference in primatology for years to come.
