A little light reading for the weekend...

I just wrapped up at work for the day - nothing like getting out at 8pm on a Friday night - and put together the reading material I'll be bringing home and at least theoretically reading this weekend. It's a somewhat eclectic collection:

Thomas, R. H. and J. A. Hunt (1991). "The molecular evolution of the alcohol dehydrogenase locus and the phylogeny of Hawaiian Drosophila." Mol Biol Evol 8(5): 687-702.

Matzkin, L. M. (2004). "Population Genetics and Geographic Variation of Alcohol Dehydrogenase (Adh) Paralogs and Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6pd) in Drosophila mojavensis." Mol Biol Evol 21(2): 276-285.
A couple of papers to read as part of the research toward my proposal.

Talbot, S. L. and G. F. Shields (1996). "Phylogeography of Brown Bears (Ursus arctos) of Alaska and Paraphyly Within the Ursidae." Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution 5(3): 477-494.

Hennig, Willi. ? Phylogenetic Systematics. p97-116 of something or another (photocopied book chapter)
The assigned reading for the Systematics class I'm taking.

Schluter, D. (2000). The Ecology of Adaptive Radiation. Oxford, Oxford University Press.
Need to read chapters 2 and 3 for adaptive radiation concepts class. Not due until next Thursday, may procrastinate.

Lomolino, M. V. and L. R. Heaney (2004). Frontiers in Biogeography: New Directions in the Geography of Nature. Sunderland, Sinauer.
Need to look through part one for seminar on biogeography. Not actually due for a couple of weeks, but looks a lot more interesting than the Schluter.

It's probably good that I finished the new Harry Potter before classes started.
