Broad topics include the history of evolutionary biology, population genetics, quantitative genetics; speciation, life history evolution, evolution of sex and mating systems, evolutionary biogeography, evolutionary developmental biology, molecular and genome evolution, coevolution, phylogenetic methods, microbial evolution, diversification of plants and fungi, diversification of animals, and applied evolution.

  • Presents fully comprehensive content, allowing easy access to fundamental information and links to primary research

  • Provides ancillary learning tools like tables, illustrations, and multimedia features to assist with the comprehension process

About the Author:

Dr. Richard Kliman did his graduate work at Wesleyan University on quantitative genetics and photoperiodism, followed by postdoctoral work in molecular evolution and population genetics at Rutgers University and Harvard University. He is currently Professor of Biological Sciences at Cedar Crest College in Allentown, PA, where he teaches courses in genetics, evolution, ecology, and statistics.

Dr. Kliman's research interests center on questions in molecular evolution, including the evolution of codon usage bias in a variety of organisms; speciation and natural history; and ecology and conservation. Much of this work has relied on population genetics/genomics and bioinformatics approaches. He has served on multiple editorial boards and as a program director at the U.S. National Foundation, and is an active proponent of evolution education.

Store Description

Founded in 1971 by Wayne Somers, a former college library bibliographer, Hammer Mountain Book Halls began as a catalogue business specializing in out-of-print scholarly books. We chose the name for euphony and because we occupied the second-highest point in the county, the top of a 1,200 foot hill. Since 1981, we've also operated "W. Somers, Bookseller," a retail book shop with a constantly changing general stock of books not listed on the Internet. It's open Monday-Friday, 11-5, and Saturday, 10-5; browsers are welcome. We've been members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of American since 1977. We're also the publisher and sole source of the invaluable "Bibliography Finder for American Authors," by Wayne Somers and Ilse Pinkus, which you can buy for a pittance through Advanced Book Exchange.
