Richard Dawkins

He stressed on the role of the gene in development and developed the new discipline of genetic ethology.


Early Life
Having been born on 26 March, 1941 in Nairobi, Kenya as the boy of Jean Mary Vyvyan and Clinton John Dawkins. His father was an agricultural civil servant in the British Colonial Support in Kenya and so this individual spent his early life in the country's wilds, observing different types of animals and their tendencies. He has one young sister.

Career
In the scientific work in evolutionary biology, Dawkins is well known for his popularisation of the gene as the principal product of selection in progression.
The Extended Phenotype (1982), by which he describes natural selection as "the process whereby replicators out-propagate each other". He introduces to a wider audience the influential concept he provided in 1977, that the phenotypic effects of a gene are generally not necessarily limited to an organism's body, but can stretch significantly into the environment, such as bodies of other creatures. Dawkins regarded the prolonged phenotype as his sole most important contribution to evolutionary biology and this individual considered niche construction to be a special circumstance of extended phenotype. The concept of extended phenotype helps make clear evolution, but that help predict specific outcomes.

Sayings
My eyes are constantly wide open to the extraordinary fact of existence. Not just human existence, but the existence of life and how this breathtakingly powerful process, which is natural selection, has managed to take the very simple facts of physics and chemistry and build them up to redwood trees and humans.
Let us try to teach generosity and altruism, because we are born selfish.
