About this book

Oceanic islands offer special opportunities for investigating evolutionary phenomena in vascular plants. This volume brings together contributions covering a range of important issues in contemporary oceanic island plant biology, focusing on patterns and processes in Pacific and other islands (with emphasis on the Bonin, Hawaiian and Juan Fernandez Islands). Topics covered include chromosomal variation, macromolecular divergence, island biogeography theory, isolating mechanisms, modes of speciation and evolution of secondary plant products.

Re-issue, originally published in 1998.

' ! the book provides pleasant and instructive reading to all interested in island biogeography.' Optima ' ! this is a useful book, bringing together a lot of information on many aspects of island biogeography.' Peter Hovenkamp, Blumea ' ! a worthy addition to the literature on plant evolution on islands ! ideal for graduate students setting out to discover new and exciting patterns of variation on islands.'
