This chapter considers some of the ways in which the conditions for existence can serve as a unifying concept in evolutionary biology. It examines some of the areas in which recognition of the principle of the conditions for existence can highlight interconnections that are not often made, both within evolutionary biology and between evolutionary biology and other fields. These fields include quantitative genetics, the levels of selection, evo-devo, the ecological niche, physiology, and conservation biology.

Keywords:   conditions for existence, evolutionary biology, quantitative genetics, selection, evo-devo, ecological niche, physiology, conservation biology
