About this book

Describes how molecular biology is joining forces with traditional biology in a revolution that is reshaping the landscape of modern natural history. Powerful methods for analysing DNA extracted from organisms - whether living or dead for thousands or even millions of years - are giving biologists access to the most fundamental information of life; genes and how they change through life. Our own evolutionary history has been illuminated too, by the most surprising discoveries.


Contents

Molecular phylogenetics; the puzzle of genetic variation; the molecular evolutionary clock; trees of life; molecular natural ecology; molecular anthropology; ancient DNA.
