About this book

This book includes the most essential contributions presented at the 17th Evolutionary Biology Meeting in Marseille, which took place in September 2013. It consists of 18 chapters organized according to the following categories:

·       Molecular and Genome Evolution

·       Phylogeography of Speciation and Coevolution

·       Exobiology and Origin of Life

The aims of the annual meetings in Marseille, which bring together leading evolutionary biologists and other scientists using evolutionary biology concepts, e.g. for medical research, are to promote the exchange of ideas and to encourage interdisciplinary collaborations. Offering an overview of the latest findings in the field of evolutionary biology, this book represents an invaluable source of information for scientists, teachers and advanced students.

Reviews

“This volume gathers 18 papers from among over 100 that were presented at the 17th Evolutionary Biology Meeting at Marseilles. … the volume offers an opportunity to learn about topics that we may not follow closely. For those of us who teach an evolution course, this book offers many case studies that our undergraduate students would enjoy.” (Joseph Travis, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 91 (1), March, 2016)
