CitationRussell Lande is one of the world's leading population biologists. He pioneered the field of quantitative genetics and phenotypic evolution in natural populations with a series of theoretical papers on mutation and maintenance of heritable variation, sexual dimorphism and sexual selection, life history evolution, phenotypic plasticity, plant mating systems, and the measurement of natural selection on correlated characters. His concepts of the G matrix and the selection gradient are now standard tools in evolutionary biology. He is an expert in stochastic demography and population viability, and achieved international prominence as a conservation biologist for both his conceptual and applied contributions.
