Invasion Genetics: the Baker & Stebbins legacy provides a state-of-the-art treatment of the evolutionary biology of invasive species, whilst also revisiting the historical legacy of one of the most important books in evolutionary biology: The Genetics of Colonizing Species, published in 1965 and edited by Herbert Baker and G. Ledyard Stebbins. This volume covers a range of topics concerned with the evolutionary biology of invasion including: phylogeography and the reconstruction of invasion history; demographic genetics; the role of stochastic forces in the invasion process; the contemporary evolution of local adaptation; the significance of epigenetics and transgenerational plasticity for invasive species; the genomic consequences of colonization; the search for invasion genes; and the comparative biology of invasive species. A wide diversity of invasive organisms are discussed including plants, animals, fungi and microbes.

"The book's format is easy to navigate, with single articles serving as chapters, providing a comfortable route through which one can locate useful references. The three sections are well defined and cohesive, and contain discussions that bring together the thoughts of the contributing authors on the featured articles...This book serves as a great reference source, with clearly defined articles and an easily navigable layout. It would prove similarly useful for those with interests in either evolution, genetics, or both." (Phenotype June 2017)

Övrig information

Professor Loren H. Rieseberg, FRS, is a Canada Research Chair in Plant Evolutionary Genomics at the University of British Columbia. He is the Chief Editor of Molecular Ecology and a Fellow of the Royal Societies of Canada and London. He has pioneered the application of genomic approaches to the study of invasive plants, with a focus on the sunflower family. Professor Spencer C.H. Barrett, FRS, is University Professor and Canada Research Chair in Evolutionary Genetics in the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto. Throughout his career he has worked on the ecology and evolution of invasive plant species, particularly their reproductive biology and genetics. He is a Fellow of the Royal Societies of London and Canada. Dr. Robert I. Colautti is the 2012 Banting Postdoctoral Fellow in the Botany Department at the University of British Columbia. He has been publishing important papers on the ecology and evolution of colonizing plants and animals for over a decade. Dr. Katrina M. Dlugosch is an Assistant Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona. Her research career has focused on the evolutionary ecology of colonization, particularly the influence of genetic variation on the adaptive evolution of invading plants. A first edition of Baker & Stebbins is one of her most prized possessions.
