Phylogeography by John C. Avise

Book Description

Phylogeography is a discipline concerned with various relationships between gene genealogies--phylogenetics--and geography. The word "phylogeography" was coined in 1987, and since then the scientific literature has reflected an exploding interest in the topic. Yet, to date, no book-length treatment of this emerging field has appeared. "Phylogeography: The History and Formation of Species" fills that gap.The study of phylogeography grew out of the observation that mitochondrial DNA lineages in natural populations often display distinct geographic orientations. In recent years, the field has expanded to include assessments of nuclear as well as cytoplasmic genomes and the relationships among gene trees, population demography, and organismal history, often formalized as coalescent theory. Phylogeography has connections to molecular evolutionary genetics, natural history, population biology, paleontology, historical geography, and speciation analysis."Phylogeography" captures the conceptual and empirical richness of the field, and also the sense of genuine innovation that phylogeographic perspectives have brought to evolutionary studies.This book will be essential reading for graduate students and professionals in evolutionary biology and ecology as well as for anyone interested in the emergence of this new and integrative discipline.

Inside the Human Genome by John C. Avise Inside the Human Genome, Hardback (February 2010)

This panoramic yet penetrating scientific view into the many imperfections of the human genome offers compelling counter-evidence to intelligent design. Why do flaws exist in a world engineered by God? The author extends this age-old question to the most basic aspects of humanity's physical existence, and provides the evolutionary answers.

Clonality by John C. Avise Clonality, Hardback (October 2008)

In this book, Avise describes the genetics, ecology, natural history, and evolution of the world's approximately 100 species of vertebrate animal that routinely display one form or another of clonal or quasi-clonal reproduction.
