Publisher’s description: This is a definitive edition of R. A. Fisher’s classic – probably the best known book in evolutionary biology after Darwin’s “Origin of Species”. Incorporated into the text of the original 1930 Clarendon Press edition are the modifications Fisher made to the second edition, published by Dover in 1958, and unpublished material that was interleaved in Fisher’s own copy. No other version of this classic exists in print. It will be of equal interest to evolutionary biologists, mathematicians, and historians of science.
