Reviews

...'an excellent introduction to the topic... This refreshing text is highly recommended for graduate students and those who wish to keep up to date with the most recent research into the origins of biological diversity from genes to species' Biologist
'... an excellent compilation of views of speciation and biodiversity...I would describe it as essential reading for anyone with an interest in speciation' The Genetical Society of Great Britain
'... an excellent summary... It is this diversity of approaches that makes this book worth reading; in very few texts do we find such a range of up to date reviews of a subject that should be of interested to all ecologists and evolutionary biologists... This refreshing text is highly recommended for graduate students and those who wish to keep up to date with the most recent research into the origins of biological diversity from genes to species' Biologist
