Math is kept to a minimum.

The Causes of Speciation Box 9B. Avise does a great job of cataloging and describing methods for measuring and analyzing genetic variation, and then provides an incredibly in-depth set of examples in which these techniques are used to answer questions about the biology of organisms.

Instructor registration is required for student access to the quizzes.

Dominance and epistasis Adaptation from standing genetic variation versus new mutations Can adaptation rescue species from extinction? Species and Speciation What Are Species? The probability that a beneficial mutation spreads Evolutionary Side Effects Hitchhiking: This book will be used as a guidebook for the workshop portion of the course.

In addition, none of these books by themselves provides the breadth of topic coverage or perspective that would be required of a textbook for our course, and each contains a lot of material of interest from a different perspective that is somewhat different from that of this course.
