Scientific Description
The Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES) combines a broad spectrum of disciplines (such as population biology, statistical and mathematical modelling, and genomics) to foster the concept of ecology as a driving force of evolution via selective processes, with a corresponding influence of evolutionary changes on ecology.

Access to Archives of Evolutional Theory and Evolutionary Monographs

Leigh Van Valen (1935-2010) was a highly accomplished evolutionary biologist whose interests spanned ecology, evolution, mathematics and philosophy. Leigh has trail-blazed new directions in evolutionary biology and paleontology repeatedly. Being fiercely supportive of the spirit of science and worthy ideas, he also established and edited two independent, historically-important, scientist-run journals: Evolutionary Theory (1973-2003) endorsed content over display, low cost and fast publication. The first article published in this journal was one of his most influential paper "A new evolutionary law". Here, both the Law of Constant Extinction and the Red Queen’s hypothesis were proposed. The second, Evolutionary Monographs (1979-1994) was an "international monograph series for all the evolutionary half of biology". At CEES, we provide service to the international communities of ecologists and evolutionary biologists by making both journals permanently available.
