Endless Forms: Species and Speciation

edited by Daniel J. Howard and Stewart H. Berlocher
New York: Oxford University Press, 1998. 484 pages.

The publisher writes, "This volume presents the newest research findings on speciation bringing readers up to date on species concepts, modes of speciation, and the nature of reproductive barriers. It also discusses the forces that drive divergence of populations, the genetic control of reproductive isolation, and the role played by hybrid zones and hybridization in speciation." After a historical introduction, there are essays on five themes: species concepts; geography, ecology, and population structure; reproductive barriers; hybrid zones and speciation; and "perspectives" — including a personal memoir by Guy Bush, a champion of sympatric speciation, to whom the book is dedicated.
