Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0974707783, Paperback)

The process of bird speciation has fascinated biologists and bird watchers ever since Charles Darwin put forth The Origin of Species in 1859. In Speciation in Birds, Trevor Price, a University of Chicago professor and leading expert in the field, has written the most authoritative and modern synthesis on the subject to date. In clear and engaging prose and through beautiful illustrations, Price shows us why the field is as exciting and vibrant as ever. He evaluates the roles of natural selection and sexual selection. He asks how speciation contributes to some of the great patterns in species diversity such as the large number of species in the tropics, and the many endemic species on isolated islands. Throughout the book, Price emphasizes the integration of behavior, ecology, and genetics. Speciation in Birds will appeal to bird enthusiasts and scientists of all stripes.
