The driving forces of natural selection leave their traces in the shapes of living creatures and their patterns of distribution. In this thoughtful and wide-ranging discussion of evolutionary process and adaptive response, Geerat Vermeij elucidates the general principles that underlie the great diversity of marine forms found in the world's great oceans.

Review:

A valuable addition to the literature and represents a significant contribution to our understanding of the ways in which biological interactions influence the structural design of living organisms. (Nature)

This Darwinian book--there is hardly higher praise--is a step towards understanding, which will probably challenge our technical methods more than the broad insights of that clever naturalist on the did. (Scientific American)
