Avise (ecology and evolution, U. of California. Irvine) invented the discipline of phylogeography and thereby moved thinking about patterns of distribution into reality. This series of 17 essays, rewritten from his previously published articles, applies his findings to genetic differentiation during speciation, molecular variability and hypothesis testing, methodologies such as gene trees, molecular clones within organismal clones, aging and sexual reproduction and their relation to DNA repair, conservation genetics, the language of DNA, mating systems and natural histories, biodiversity, evolutionary biology, models and metaphors, and evolution's unanswered questions. Avise's commentary is accessible and elegant, making this suitable as a good choice for the general readership with a natural science interest and as a strong supplemental text.
