George Gaylord Simpson, (born June 16, 1902, Chicago, Il. . died Oct. 6, 1984, Tucson, Ariz

George Gaylord Simpson, (born June 16, 1902, Chicago, Il. 6, 1984, Tucson, Ariz. American paleontologist known for his contributions to evolutionary theory and to the understanding of intercontinental migrations of animal species in past geological times. Simpson received a doctorate from Yale University in 1926. Problems of taxonomy and classification are intimately connected with evolutionary studies, and, in addition to giving a thorough consideration of principles of classification in his work on mammalian classification, he published in 1961 a volume on The Principles of Animal Taxonomy.

George Gaylord Simpson (16 June 1902 – 6 October 1984) was an American paleontologist

George Gaylord Simpson (16 June 1902 – 6 October 1984) was an American paleontologist. Simpson was perhaps the most influential paleontologist of the twentieth century, and a major participant in the modern evolutionary synthesis. He was an expert on extinct mammals and their migrations, especially the Great American Interchange between the Americas.

In 1978 the distinguished paleontologist George Gaylord Simpson published his autobiography, Concession to the Improbable, which gave the basic facts of his life but left more questions than it answered. Now Léo F. Laporte presents this absorbing intellectual study of Simpson's major areas of work.Focusing on Simpson's scientific contributions, Laporte provides chapters on Simpson's earliest paleontological research through his distinguished Alexander Agassiz professorship at Harvard and his extensive fieldwork for the American Museum of Natural History, where he developed the core themes set forth in his most prestigious work, Tempo and Mode in Evolution (Columbia University Press, 1944). Simpson was arguably the first evolutionary paleontologist to combine descriptive taxonomy with the modern approaches of genetics and statistical analysis.Despite his brilliance Simpson was a difficult person to know; Laporte addresses the nature of Simpson's interpersonal problems with colleagues during his life. An introductory overview provides the biographical context of Simpson's career and provides the framework for his major paleontological and evolutionary contributions.

I have the privilege of knowing the author and the subject matter, I can vote a hearty 'thumbs up' for the subject treatment and the writing style. Dr. Laporte is the founding editor of one of the most influential journals in paleobiology, and well known author in the field, and has given us a masterly piece on one of the less approachable figures of paleontology. Dr. Simpson is perhaps the most influential figure in the modern synthesis of evolutionary biology of the 20th century. This volume is a 'must read and have to hand' for any naturalist, writer, scientist, or researcher in the topic of evolution. From an author with a distinguished record of accomplishments which spans forty years and more, buy it and enjoy it.
