about

This book focuses on drosophila as an especially useful model organism for exploring questions of evolutionary biology in the full range of evolutionary studies: population genetics, ecology, ecological genetics, speciation, phylogenetics, genome evolution, molecular evolution, anddevelopment. The author presents an integrated view of evolutionary biology as elucidated in this single organism. Special effort is made to point out holes in our knowledge and areas particularly ripe for new investigation.
Jeffrey R. Powell is at Yale University.

Editorial Reviews

"The twelve chapters in this text serve as a reference that will be of use to researchers and students using the Drosophila melanogaster model in developmental biology, molecular biology, neurobiology, and evolutionary biology. The book also includes an index, a list of references, and manyfigures." -- Biosis, Vol 50, Issue 3, March 22, 1998
