About this book

Now available in paperback, this book provides an up-to-date synthesis of research on speciation in higher organisms, concentrating on the evolutionary processes, the role of chromosomes, and the genetic mechanics involved in speciation.

'All in all, I recommend cytogeneticists to read Max King's book to discover the maximum possible impact chromosomes may have on speciation. However, his ideas may be a long way from the truth ! the debate on speciation continues.' Jeremy Searle, Chromosome Research
