MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

The annual Evolutionary Biology Meetings in Marseille aim to bring together leading scientists, promoting an exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge and the formation of inter-group collaborations. This book presents the most representative contributions to the 13th meeting, which was held in September 2009. It comprises 21 chapters, which are organized into the following three categories:
• Evolutionary Biology Concepts
• Genome/Molecular Evolution
• Morphological Evolution/Speciation
This book offers an up-to-date overview of evolutionary biology concepts and their use in the biology of the 21st century.


Feature:

Presents the most representative contributions to the 13th Evolutionary Biology Meeting in Marseille
Written by experts in the field
Presents recent results and discusses future research
