    G. P. Wagner (ed.) (2001). The Character Concept in Evolutionary Biology. Academic Press.
    " Because characters and the conception of characters are central to all studies of evolution, and because evolution is the central organizing principle of biology, this book will appeal to a wide cross-section of biologists.

  2. G. P. Wagner & J. Draghi (2010). Evolution of Evolvability. In Massimo Pigliucci & Gerd Muller (eds.), Evolution – the Extended Synthesis. MIT Press 379--399.
    This chapter offers an essay on the evolution of evolvability. It investigates the most frequently cited arguments against the possibility that the evolution of evolvability might be the result of selection favoring more evolvable genotypes. The chapter argues that all these arguments have not been rigorously analyzed by their proponents, and are thus a self-inflicted blind spot in evolutionary biology, and indicates that there are no deep conceptual obstacles for population genetic theory to explain the evolution of evolvability. The very (...)

    G. P. Wagner (1981). Feedback Selection and the Evolution of Modifiers. Acta Biotheoretica 30 (2):79-102.
    The problem of modifier evolution was examined with regard to the idea that modifier evolution can be considered as a result of selection for adaptation speed in populations far from equilibrium. This kind of selection was called feedback selection in order to emphasize the difference to theories which consider modifier evolution near the equilibrium. The basic principles of this kind of selection are derived for asexual populations and the problem of dominance is discussed in the light of this concept. In (...)
