This book reviews what species are and then investigates the factors involved in their evolution. It analyzes the most recent information gathered from studies on plant and animal populations. Particular emphasis is placed on evolutionary processes involved in speciation. The genetic mechanisms of speciation are examined at a series of different levels including molecular, cellular and population studies, and particular emphasis is placed on the role of chromosomes in speciation.

Book Description:

In this review of the multi-level factors involved in species evolution, gathered from studies on plant and animal populations, particular emphasis is placed on evolutionary processes involved in speciation, such as the role of the chromosome.

Review:

"...deserves a readership among workers in the field." R. K. Butlin, Nature

"...a book with a message, namely, that chromosomal reorganisation has been underestimated as a species-forming mechanism....a useful review of contemporary data and thought on speciation." Laurence Cook, Times Higher Education Supplement

"...an important book for graduate students and researchers." E. Delson, Choice
