Editorial Reviews

Review

“One can open to any page, read, and be entertained and edified.”
Choice

"This work is such a marvelous accomplishment that I would recommend to all, with even the slightest interest in evolution, buying the hardcover version to keep for a long time as standard reference to a phylogenetic understanding of structure and function in living organisms...[Avise's book] is an extraordinarily effective means to learn about and to understand evolutionary relationships. It is one of the best-written and most comprehensive books on the subject."
American Journal of Medical Genetics, John M. Opitz, University of Utah School of Medicine

"The abundance of fascinating evolutionary tales and the engaging clarity with which Avise tells them not only guarantee that this book will serve its purpose but also make it a 'must-have' for all enthusiasts of evolutionary biology."
Andrew J. Roger, Nature Genetics, December 2006

Book Description

This book provides a non-technical introduction to how phylogenetic analyses can be used to understand evolutionary pathways. The author escorts readers on historical journeys into the origins of many of nature's most intriguing evolutionary outcomes, from the toucan's enormous bill to pregnant male seahorses.

Format: Paperback
This a great book, well put together and an easy read. I would suggest it for those who are not familiar with phylogenetics. Otherwise it is a bit simplified for those who know and understand most of the concepts already. perfect for an undergraduate level class or advanced high school students.
