After volume 33, this book series was replaced by the journal "Evolutionary Biology." Please visit www.springer.com/11692 for further information.

Volume 30 brings readers up to date on the investigation of eminent evolutionary biologists and paleobiologists. Contributions explore such topics as

  • Adaptation in Drosophila and the role of cytochrome P450s
  • Population genetics and species conservation of the cheetah
  • germ-layer theory
  • assymetry in the mammalian skeleton
  • genetic diversity of marine fish
  • the phenomenon of industrial melanism
  • the variation in lizard cranal kinesis.
Other chapters focus on such issues as overdominance and its relation to higher mutation-rate estimates and the use of molecular clocks in determining the rate of nucleotide substitution in higher plants.

`All-in-all this is an entertaining and valuable book; have fun reading it.' Heredity, 82:227-228 (1999)
