    Default Evolution of Sleep: Phylogenetic and Functional Perspectives

    Evolution of Sleep: Phylogenetic and Functional Perspectives
    By Patrick McNamara (Editor), Robert A. Barton (Editor), Charles L. Nunn (Editor)

    Product Description
    Research during the past two decades has produced major advances in understanding sleep within particular species. Simultaneously, molecular advances have made it possible to generate phylogenetic trees, while new analytical methods provide the tools to examine macroevolutionary change on these trees. These methods have recently been applied to questions concerning the evolution of distinctive sleep state characteristics and functions. This book synthesizes recent advances in our understanding of the evolutionary origins of sleep and its adaptive function, and it lays the groundwork for future evolutionary research by assessing sleep patterns in the major animal lineages.

    Book Description
    This edited volume consists of a collection of essays from experts on the phylogeny, biology, and expression of sleep states in a broad range of animal species, from insects to mammals. An introductory chapter summarizes the history of the study of the evolutionary origins of sleep and basic concepts in sleep science, and a concluding set of chapters is devoted to synthesizing patterns documented in the previous chapters.
