Editorial Reviews

Review

"These essays explore the nature and importance of the "founder effect"--a genetic phenomenon considered to be increasingly important to the formation of species in plants and animals . . . . Contributors include such well-known longtime researchers as James V. Neel and Ledyard Stebbins. For an audience sophisticated in genetics, including upper-division undergraduates and graduate students." --Choice

"This book should be consulted by all those interested in speciation. It is a definitive statement of ideas from the "Hawaiian school" of evolution, including a new theory from Kaneshiro about the effect of founder events on female preferences. Many of the papers are of wider interest than the title of the volume might suggest, and address such diverse subjects as adaptive radiation in plants, karyotypic evolution, sexual selection, and the genetics of the Yanomama Indians." --The Quarterly Review of Biology
