On the thermodynamics of biological evolution






Journal of Theoretical Biology 75(4): 425-441

On the thermodynamics of biological evolution

A theory is proposed which describes biological evolution in terms of classical thermodynamics. Notions are introduced of particular forms of evolution as components of the general evolution of the biosphere.
