It can be ordered now and is due to ship on 22 October This is the second edition of a book that remains one of my all-time favorites. The literature and resources in Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution are widely scattered.

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, fuhuyma each contains a lot of material of interest from a different perspective that is somewhat different from that of this course.
