This site is managed by Brian Golding. If you feel that you have something of interest to other evolutionary biologists please send me e-mail and I will put it on these pages. These pages are for evolutionary biologists (population genetics, and related fields). If there is a message that seems too distant to these purposes, it will be deleted or worse, edited at my discretion to read "the evolution of ...".

General INSTRUCTIONS are available for the EvolDir. It is my policy that commercial notices are not permitted except in the announcement section and at my discretion (send emails with the subject header "EvolDir -for announcement section" to me at Golding@McMaster.CA).
