About this book

Provides reviews, perspectives, theoretical models, statistical developments and empirical demonstrations exploring the tempo and mode of microevolution on contemporary to geological time scales. Patterns and mechanisms of microevolution, methods for its quantification, and implications for the evolution of biodiversity on other scales are all covered.
