About this book

Hawaiian Drosophila has become a well-known model system in modern biology. Flies, Phylogeny and Islands brings together all the historical information on Hawaiian Drosophilidae in a single reference with a useful summary of where Hawaiian Drosophila research resides and how work on this impressive radiation has molded the field of evolutionary biology. Rather than being presented in an encyclopedic fashion, this information is synthesized and placed in the context of broader areas of inquiry, including island biogeography, population genetics, and genomics.
