Alain Pavé. On the Origins and Dynamics of Biodiversity: the Role of Chance

Covers both biological and ecological aspects - from the gene to the ecosystem - to outline a "biological" theory of biodiversity
Shows us how these internal mechanisms are analogous to the mechanical devices that bring about “physical chance”
Evaluates the breadth of our knowledge on biodiversity, our possible responses, and the limits of those responses to the spontaneous biological and ecological aspects that we most often overlook
