I recently ran across an excellent review paper on proposed mechanisms
of macroevolution that utilizes microevolutionary processes. Anyone
interested in possible mechanisms of evolution should read it.

Doebley, John and Lewis Lukens (1998). Transcriptional Regulators and
the Evolution of Plant Form. The Plant Cell, vol 10, 1075-1082.

Even though the title implies that the review refers only to plant
evolution, it actually includes animal evolution. Doebley is a
geneticist and was the organizer of an evolution seminar course I
participated in during my sabbatical at U Minn in the Fall, 1997. I was
most impressed with his knowledge of the literature on genetics and
