Memetics, Memes and the Science of Cultural Evolution is easy to understand and convays well the paramount importance that this subject has in our information age. I looked for information on this subject and this book and Time Tyler's blog and web site is a treasure/5. Cultural change has similarities to genetic evolution, but the study of culture using evolutionary models remains contentious (Aunger ; Mesoudi et al. ; Henrich et al. ).Analogously to genetic evolution, cultural traits are transmitted by replication (i.e., learning), and cultural change involves mutation of cultural traits, drift, and selective processes favoring the persistence.

  Cultural evolution is a powerful process shaping behavioural phenotypes of many species including our own. Killer whales are one of the species with relatively well-studied vocal culture. Pods have distinct dialects comprising a mix of unique and shared call types; calves adopt the call repertoire of their matriline through social by: Cultural selection theory is a scientific discipline that explores sociological and cultural evolution the same way that Darwinian selection theory is used to explain biological are three obvious concepts to Cultural Selection. The three concepts are social contagion theory, evolutionary epistemology, and memetics. This theory is an extension of memetics.

Abstract. We investigated cultural evolution in populations of common chaffinches (Fringilla coelebs) in the Atlantic islands (Azores, Madeira, Canaries) and neighboring continental regions (Morocco, Iberia) by employing a population memetics approach.

To quantify variability within populations, we used the concept of a song meme, defined as a single syllable or a series of linked syllables capable of being Cited by: A population memetics approach to cultural evolution in chaffinch song: meme diversity within populations.
