The Mechanism of Evolution

Second Edition

Graham Bell

  • Includes discussion of stochastic versus deterministic processes
  • Encourages the development of more extensive experimental research involving model eukaryotic systems
  • Incorporates the application of genomic methods to investigations of selection
  • Ideal graduate seminar course material

New to this Edition:

  • First published by Chapman and Hall in 1996, this new edition will build upon the strengths of the earlier work but will be thoroughly revised throughout to incorporate relevant aspects of modern evolutionary genetics where remarkable advances have recently occurred.
