This book adopts a direct experimental approach to evolutionary questions, drawing predominantly from research on microbial systems. The focus is on processes and mechanisms, and incorporates insights from recent advances in whole-genome sequencing, bioinformatics, environmental genomics and developmental genetics. First published 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.
