Summary Evolution consists of an aggregate of processes of various kinds which affect different taxa differently. Major processes are tentatively classified as mutational, constraining, frequency-changing, adaptive, rate-determining and direction-determining. Each is examined, with major gaps in knowledge identified. -P.J.Jarvis
