    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 30.00

    Traditional ecological approaches to species evolution have frequently studied too few species, relatively small areas, and relatively short time spans. In The Coevolutionary Process, John N. Thompson advances a new conceptual approach to the evolution of species interactions?the geographic mosaic theory of coevolution. Thompson demonstrates how... more...
