These quizzes are assignable by the instructor. Diagnosis of a New Species Reproductive Isolation Prezygotic barriers Postzygotic barriers How fast does reproductive isolation evolve? Kirkpatrick’s research interests are in evolutionary genetics. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. 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.

Instructor registration is required in order for students to access the quizzes. It ends with a brief overview of two major frameworks of statistical analysis: It addresses major themes–including the history of evolution, evolutionary processes, adaptation, and evolution as an explanatory framework–at levels of biological organization ranging from genomes to ecological communities.

Futuyma is the author of three previous editions of Evolutionas well as three editions of its predecessor, Evolutionary Biology.
