In the past three years, much has been gained by cooperation among Japanese molecular biologists, molecular evolutionists and population geneticists. The main results are: (i) establishment of the neutral theory as a scientific hypothesis, and full recognition of its usefulness in evolutionary thinking, and (ii) clues for the future direction of research in molecular evolutionary biology. This book provides up-dated reviews on these themes.
