Modelos y Simulaciones Biológicas: Ecología y Evolución

This book presents a dozen of original chapters on theoretical biology, prepared by Venezuelan researchers who use formal methods to understand Ecology and Evolution. Each chapter is an original contribution product of one or several researchers who were invited to participate in this project.

The book is written in Spanish and targets a professional audience as well as advanced students from the Spanish-speaking community of the American and European continents. All chapters have been peer reviewed by at least two international professionals.

We would also like to announce the latest publication by Eörs Szathmáry - member of the Parmenides Faculty and of the core research team:
Biological Foundations and Origin of Syntax
(edited together with Derek Bickerton), MIT Press.

The book presents interdisciplinary perspectives on the evolutionary and biological roots of syntax, describing current research on syntax in fields ranging from linguistics to neurology.

"This book continues the debate between those who see the core rules of syntax as the result of biological evolution and those who stress cultural evolution atop more general brain functions. To this reader, the chapters enriched by consideration of brain and computation swing the weight of evidence to the latter camp."
Michael Arbib, Professor of Computer Science and Neuroscience, University of Southern California
