Darwinian evolution is grounded in a dynamical selection process that involves diverse classes of replicating agents. A self-consistent theory of evolution requires the incorporation of thermodynamics, particularly when dealing with early, prebiotic systems. Here, using a coarse-graining, nonequilibrium approach, we derive the entropy bounds for the three classes of Darwinian replicators, which effectively constrain the space of the possible replication strategies and their presence or absence.
