Descripción del producto
"Coyne and Orr have done the field a great favour by synthesising so much research so comprehensively. I think the book will serve its purpose of teaching upcoming (and existing) generations of evolutionary biologists of what we do and do not know about speciation. It will literally be the point of reference for the next ten years."--Menno Schilthuizen, BioEssays
"Coyne and Orr's thorough and thoughtful review of speciation ranges over the entire field and examines it dispassionately. Theirs is a remarkable work of synthesis, and it belongs on every biologist's bookshelf. On the whole, this book is a wonderful resource and a fine example of what happens when clever scientists take a clear and unbiased look at the evidence. It will, I predict, join the pantheon of really important books about evolution."--Christopher Wills, Journal of Heredity
"I highly recommend this deeply insightful book. The field of speciation research was in need of a sagacious update, and this benchmark work will provide a solid foundation for further scientific inquiry into what has been one of evolution's most engaging and enduring mysteries."--John C. Avise, Perspectives in Biology and Medicine
"Coyne and Orr's Speciation has been eagerly awaited. If its messages are heeded, it will bring much-needed order and rigor to the current burst of activity. Systematic and incisive analysis is what makes the book so powerful. Coyne and Orr have done the field a great service by providing such a clear analysis of the status quo. Hopefully, a wide audience will read the book, apply similarly rigorous arguments and direct their research efforts more profitably as a result."--Roger K. Butlin, Evolution
Descripción del producto
Over the last two decades, the study of speciation has expanded from a modest backwater of evolutionary biology into a large and vigorous discipline. Thus, the literature on speciation, as well as the number of researchers and students working in this area, has grown explosively. Despite these developments, there has been no book-length treatment of speciation in many years. As a result, both the seasoned scholar and the newcomer to evolutionary biology had no ready guide to the recent literature on speciation-a body of work that is enormous, scattered, and increasingly technical. Although several excellent symposium volumes have recently appeared, these collections do not provide a unified, critical, and up-to-date overview of the field. Speciation is designed to fill this gap. Aimed at professional biologists, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates, Speciation covers both plants and animals (the first book on this subject to do so), and deals with all relevant areas of research, including biogeography, field work, systematics, theory, and genetic and molecular studies. It gives special emphasis to topics that are either controversial or the subject of active research, including sympatric speciation, reinforcement, the role of hybridization in speciation, the search for genes causing reproductive isolation, and mounting evidence for the role of natural and sexual selection in the origin of species. The authors do not hesitate to take stands on these and other controversial issues. This critical and scholarly book will be invaluable to researchers in evolutionary biology and is also ideal for a graduate-level course on speciation.

nice review but rather pedantic
el 16 de enero de 2007 - Publicado en Amazon.com
i bought this book for a class on speciation. however, as a botanist i was somewhat disappointed to find 70% of the papers cited throughout the book related only to drosophila. coyne and orr's personal research deals only with drosophila so this seems like their bias on display. they also use superlatives more often in relation to their own work than anyone else's. though it's a harmless habit, it can become annoying and detract from the rest of the content of the book. the book is a probably the best review of major developments in our understanding of speciation in the past several decades, but it isn't perfect.

I felt like this book had a well planned and consistent lay out from start to finish. The authors present a topic then discuss competing theories and then provide both experimental and field data that may support or refute the different theories. Most of the research that is mentioned is only mentioned in passing but at least it gives you a place to start. On the whole I felt like it was a good introduction to the science of speciation.

This is THE book in the field.

This is the most up-to-date book in the field of speciation. It is comprehensive in theory, data, and taxa, but by no means comprehensive of the biology: that may be more a fault of the field and the topic than the book. Tons of references and suggestions for research programs.

This is an excellent book for pretty much any biologist. It is true that many of the chapters (especially those about postzygotic isolation) have many examples of flies, but it is because some the best examples come from Drosophila. I highly recommend this book.
The topics are well-covered. The authors are definitely biased ...

The topics are well-covered. The authors are definitely biased, but they make it very clear from the beginning and do still offer alternatives.
