About this book

John Avise is one of the most distinguished evolutionary biologists of our time. From how to define a species to the folly of faulty applications of cladistics to connections between conservation and evolutionary biology, this work takes the reader on a personal journey into the mind of one of the world's leading evolutionists.

"A valuable undertaking [...] broadly accessible to the general public, and lay readers after something with a bit more substance than most popular writing on evolutionary biology."
– Danny Yee, Systematic Biology
