About the Author
Patrik Nosil is an Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He research focuses on how new species form. His initial work on how new species of insects might form as they adapt to feeding on different types of host plants received wide-recognition, for example earning him the Dobzhansky Prize from the Society for the Study of Evolution. More recently, he has been employing a combination of both theoretical and empirical approaches to study the types of genetic changes that occur in the genome as new species are formed.
Top customer reviews
Even though the text covers a wide-range of complex topics, Nosil's presentation is clear, and all terminology is unambiguously defined. That said, this text is not for a beginning evolutionary biologist. It requires a deal of background knowledge about ecology, genetics, genomics, evolution, and molecular biology in order to comprehend everything completely. The intended audience is clearly graduate students and above, and more senior graduate students may get more out of it than novice ones. A great book that definitely deserves to sit alongside others in this series.
