"Tangled Trees" provides an up-to-date review and synthesis of current knowledge about phylogeny, cospeciation and coevolution. The opening chapters present various methodological and theoretical approaches, ranging from the well-known parsimony approach to "jungles" and Bayesian statistical models. Then a series of empirical chapters discusses detailed studies of cospeciation involving vertebrate hosts and their parasites, including nematodes, viruses and lice. "Tangled Trees" should be welcomed by researchers in a wide variety of fields, from parasitology and ecology to systematics and evolutionary biology.
