About this book

Tracks the spread of tarweeds from the Rocky Mountains, through the hills, valleys, and offshore islands of California and Mexico, to the islands of the Hawaiian archipelago. Their evolution has been achieved by a reworking of chromosome structure. This multidimensional story is told in an accessible manner, but will also be of interest to reseachers.
