Reticulate Evolution and Humans

Origins and Ecology

Michael L. Arnold

  • Builds on the foundations of author's successful 1997 monograph for the Oxford Series in Ecology and Evolution
  • The first book to describe the effect of genetic exchange on the origin of our own species and those species with which we have and continue to interact closely, both evolutionarily and culturally
  • Demonstrates how these organisms in turn have evolved in the context of introgressive hybridization and horizontal exchange
  • Currently a "hot topic" in evolutionary biology
  • Written by one of the top researchers in the field
