"Wesson's book may help jump-start new work by researchers whose interests span the multiple levels on which natural selection acts to modfiy population persistence." - The Quarterly Review of Biology, Rebecca L. Cann, University of Hawaii
"Wessen's simulation of human evolution will be a useful reference for phylogenetic systematicists, human geneticists, physical anthropologists and primatologists, and paleoarchaeologists who want to think deeply about both the power and limits of reconstructing human history from currently available data and with contemporary tools.
John R. Jungck, BioScience
Computer simulations of evolutionary and genetic processes can help us understand more about the earliest origins of humankind. In this book, Ken Wessen shows graduate students and researchers in human evolution, genetics and biological anthropology how to unpick the complex interactions using novel simulation software, made available on an associated website.
