Evolutionary Biology

Editor in Chief | Area Editors | Articles and Contributors

Evolutionary biology is a vibrant discipline that has never been more exciting. Technological and conceptual advances, such as genome sequencing and evolutionary developmental biology, are moving the field forward at breakneck speed. At the same time, application of evolutionary thinking to issues of societal concern, such as forensics or the origin of swine flu, has kept the field in the public’s eye. Of course, ongoing controversy about evolution makes public knowledge of the field important as well. What is particularly exciting right now is the nexus of two developments, which jointly allow an understanding of evolutionary processes never before possible. First is the ability to sequence entire genomes, and second is the means to study natural populations over long periods of time. Oxford Bibliographies in Evolutionary Biology guides scholarly research through the growing mass of unqualified academic output, offering selective annotated research paths that are insightful, increase productivity, and raise the level of quality in new scholarship.

Editor in Chief

Karin Pfennig is Professor and Associate Chair of Academic Affairs in the Department of Biology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She studies the evolution of mating behavior and its role in hybridization and speciation. The overarching goal of her work is to understand how behavior contributes to the origins and distribution of biodiversity.
