"Traditional ecological approaches to species evolution have frequently dealt with 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 an integrated study of life histories, genetics, and the geographic structure of populations yields a surprisingly broad understanding of coevolution." "Thompson examines how and when extreme specialization evolves in interdependent species and how geographic differences in specialization, adaptation, and the outcomes of interactions shape coevolution. Through the geographic mosaic theory, he connects the study of specialization and coevolution in local communities and the study of broader patterns seen in comparisons of the phylogenies of interacting species."--Jacket.
