Life is simply the reification of the process of living. ...
by Ernst Mayr

Life is simply the reification of the process of living.
- Ernst Mayr

It seems to me that for Darwin the pulsing of evolutionary
rates was a strictly vertical phenomenon.
- Ernst Mayr

Evolution thus is merely contingent on certain processes articulated by Darwin:
variation and selection.
- Ernst Mayr

Living in an entirely different physical as well as biotic environment,
such a population would have unique opportunities to
enter new niches and to select novel adaptive pathways.
- Ernst Mayr

 

New gene pools are generated in every generation,
and evolution takes place because the successful individuals
produced by these gene pools give rise to the next generation.
- Ernst Mayr

it occurs in a relatively small and isolated population.

Indeed, I was unable to find any evidence whatsoever
of the occurrence of a drastic evolutionary acceleration
and genetic reconstruction in widespread,
populous species.
- Ernst Mayr

I had found again and again that the most aberrant
population of a species -
often having reached species rank,
and occasionally classified even as a separate genus -
occurred at a peripheral location,
indeed usually at the most isolated peripheral location.
- Ernst Mayr

The major novelty of my theory was its claim that the
most rapid evolutionary change does not occur in widespread,
populous species, as claimed by Most geneticists,
but in small founder populations.
- Ernst Mayr

According to the concept of transformational evolution,
first clearly articulated by Lamarck,
evolution consists of the gradual transformation of
organisms from one condition of existence to another.
- Ernst Mayr

As a consequence, geneticists described evolution simply
as a change in gene frequencies in populations,
totally ignoring the fact that evolution consists of
the two simultaneous but quite separate phenomena of
adaptation and diversification.
- Ernst Mayr

In those early years in New York when I was a stranger in a big city,
it was the companionship and later friendship which
I was offered in the Linnean Society that was the most
important thing in my life.
- Ernst Mayr

Most of them are doomed to rapid extinction,
but a few may make evolutionary inventions,
such as physiological, ecological, or behavioral innovations
that give these species improved competitive potential.
- Ernst Mayr
