9780521571234: Evolutionary Genetics: From Molecules to Morphology

Lewontin is undoubtedly one of the most distinguished evolutionary biologists of our time. He has contributed to science not only by his own work on evolutionary theory and molecular variation and by his influence on the many young scientists who have worked with him, but also by asking us to think about the relationships between the science we do and the world we do it in. This collection of essays is produced in honor of Lewontin's 65th birthday. This unique volume offers comprehensive coverage of modern evolutionary genetics from molecules to morphology by a group of star authors, including his students and colleagues. Sciences in general, and the life sciences in particular, need their own critic, and Lewontin has been an untiring critic of science and its relevance to society. This volume brings out the central role of evolutionary genetics in all aspects of its connection to evolutionary biology and is a must for all graduate students and researchers in evolutionary biology.

Book Description:

Evolutionary Genetics from Molecules to Morphology has been written in honor of Richard Lewontin, one of the most distinguished population geneticists of our time. The volume has a comprehensive coverage of population genetics and evolution and is written by a group of distinguished researchers in the field. The volume is unique and unprecedented as it gives a historical perspective of each subject and at the same time provides the most up to date material in the field. No graduate student or researcher interested in genetics and evolution can remain without it. The book can be used as a reading text in graduate courses in population genetics, population ecology, and evolution.

Review:

"Indeed, the 32 articles that constitute this volume cover just about everything within the field of microevolution and, at least in this sense, the volume lives up to the high expectations. It can be recommended both to professional microevolutionists and to biologists who know little about microevolution, but want a serious introduction to this field. The Chetverikov-Dobzhansky paradigm has been and still is extremely successful and certainly will be a part of the foundation of new evolutionary biology, whatever shape it takes. Evolutionary Genetics does justice to this paradigm and should be recommended to anyone who wants to understand it."

"As his former students and colleagues are proud to point out, Lewontin's mind has touched, imformed and in many cases, formed the way we teach, explain and do research in areas encompassing phenomena as varied as the reaction...His astounding breadth as an evolutionary biologist (and as a person) comes through loud and clear as one reads the 32 contributions in this collection." American Jrnl of Human Biology
