In this comprehensive history of symbiosis theory--the first to be written--Jan Sapp masterfully traces its development from modest beginnings in the late nineteenth century to its current status as one of the key conceptual frameworks for the life sciences. The symbiotic perspective on evolution, which argues that "higher species" have evolved from a merger of two or more different kinds of organisms living together, is now clearly established with definitive molecular evidence demonstrating that mitochondria and chloroplasts have evolved from symbiotic bacteria. In telling the exciting story of an evolutionary biology tradition that has effectively challenged many key tenets of classical neo-Darwinism, Sapp sheds light on the phenomena, movements, doctrines, and controversies that have shaped attitudes about the scope and significance of symbiosis. Engaging and insightful, Evolution by Association will be avidly read by students and researchers across the life sciences.

About halfway through this book I decided the subtitle needed to be changed to the title I have used for the review of this text. In some ways it is a condensed history of biology with the emphasis on symbiosis. For me there was too much history and not enough science. At times I did find it interesting how many hypotheses were presented over time by various biologists based on evidence obtained with very primitive tools. This was certainly very true when it came to observing the parts of cells and guessing at their function.

This 211 page text is not an easy read. The author does however accomplish his goal: "to located studies of symbiosis within the life sciences ever since Darwin; to situate symbiosis within the complex matrix biological specialization; to offer broad sketch of the phenomena, movements, debates, doctrines, and metaphors that have shaped ideas and attitudes about its scope and significance." pg. xv.
