Species versus gene selection

Abstract

Species selection has been recently promoted (Gould & Eldredge, 1988a, 1988b) as the driving force in macroevolution, and viewed as an explanation for the variability in rates observed, both temporally and spatially, at the phenotypic level. This has rekindled the contention between microevolutionists (Maynard Smith, 1987, 1988) and macroevolutionists, which has existed since Darwin’s era.
