The drama of the 5th. Edition has now ended. The book has gone to print, and I will be "grandfathernapping" the Professor for an imposed 3 day holiday early this coming week.
This is NOT recommended for light summer reading, but you can probably still sign up for his Molecular Evolution course in the fall :) You can click on the image to "embiggen". I love the new cover, except for the lizard which I voted against :)
It's difficult to imagine what goes into publishing a University text book. This has been going on since 1986..starting, in the old days, in Chapel Hill, NC. - Seven books ago and the fifth edition of this one. Congratulations to the Professor, and to all of us for surviving this long :)
