Here, however, we attempt to demonstrate that the Mhc has much to offer to this discipline and intimate that evolutionary biologists who ignore its contributions miss out on a chance of applying a new approach to vexing questions. One aspect of the Mhc in particular affords a fresh look at the population processes that transform one species into another: the trans-species… CONTINUE READING
