Phylogeography

by John C. Avise
Cambridge (MA): Harvard University Press, 2000. 464 pages.

Phylogeography is the discipline that traces the evolutionary history of genotypes through space. “John Avise is the acknowledged founder of the field that he has named ‘phylogeography,’” Svante Pääbo writes. “This book presents the intellectual underpinning of this novel focus of research. It is eminently accessible to students and researchers who approach this problem from a practical angle and are not well-versed in the quite complex mathematics that underline many of these approaches. It is certainly a book I will recommend to my graduate students and will use in my teaching.”
