About the Book
This edition incorporates 133 entries in Encyclopaedia of Evolutionary and Molecular Biology that reflect the ever greater breadth and depth of evolutionary science by providing expanded treatment of many topics and by emphasizing the new intellectual and molecular perspectives that have revolutionized evolutionary biology in the last few decades. Equally significant, the Encyclopaedia has been made more accessible to student readers by a more expansive style of presentation and by extended examples that convey not only the evidence for hypotheses, but also the ways in which evolutionary hypotheses are framed and tested.
