Paper of the week: adaptive evolution

This week’s Paper of the Week is Deborah Charlesworth’s, Nick Barton’s and Brian Charlesworth’s timely review of the sources of adaptive variation in evolution. In response to claims made by supporters of an Extended Evolutionary Synthesis, Deborah, Brian and Nick place the neo-Darwinian process of genetic evolution – as encapsulated by the Modern Synthesis – at the heart of biological evolution. Okay, preaching to the converted in my case, but required reading otherwise. For a copy of the paper go here.
