Roderic Dugald Morton Page (born 1962) is an evolutionary biologist at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, and the author of several books.[1] He is currently professor at the University of Glasgow and was editor of the journal Systematic Biology until the end of 2007.[2] His main interests are in phylogenetics,[3] evolutionary biology and bioinformatics.[4][5] He is known for his work on co-speciation and in particular the development of bioinformatic software such as TreeMap,[6] RadCon,[7][8] and TreeView.[9][10][11]
