Information In Biological Systems: The Role Of Macromolecules
This account of information theory, the means by which biological information is transmitted from generation to generation, is written for students of all branches of natural sciences. It gives a comprehensive description and connects the various sciences involved. The argument put forward is that man cannot be the result of some mechanistic coincidence: there must be a plan underlying the evolution of life which extends Darwin's theory of the survival of the fittest and which is reflected by modern ecology. The author intends to persuade the reader to feel respect and admiration for the magnificent world of living beings.
