About this book

The annual Evolutionary Biology Meetings in Marseilles serve to gather leading scientists, promote the exchange of ideas and encourage the formation of international collaborations.

Evolutionary Biology: Concepts, Biodiversity, Macroevolution and Genome Evolution contains the most essential contributions presented at the 14th Evolutionary Biology Meeting, which took place in September 2010. It comprises 19 chapters organized according to the following categories:

- Evolutionary Biology Concepts
- Biodiversity and Evolution
- Macroevolution
- Genome Evolution

Offering an up-to-date overview of recent results in the field of evolutionary biology, Evolutionary Biology: Concepts, Biodiversity, Macroevolution and Genome Evolution is an invaluable source of information for scientists, teachers and advanced students.
