Phylogeography: Concepts, Intraspecific Patterns and Speciation Processes


Damien S. Rutgers (Editor)

Series: Genetics – Research and Issues

Phylogeography is the study of the historical processes that may be responsible for the contemporary geographic distributions of individuals. This is accomplished by considering the geographic distribution of individuals in light of the patterns associated with a gene genealogy. This term was introduced to describe geographically structured genetic signals within and among species. An explicit focus on a species’ biogeography/biogeographical past sets phylogeography apart from classical population genetics and phylogenetics. This new book reviews research on phylogeography.
