Abstract: We determine the exact global structure of the moduli space of N = 2 supersymmetric SO(n) and USp(2n) gauge theories with matter hypermultiplets in the fundamental representations, using the nonrenormalization theorem for the Higgs branches and the exact solutions for the Coulomb branches. By adding an (N = 2)breaking mass term for the adjoint chiral field and varying the mass, the N = 2 theories can be made to flow to either an "electric" N = 1 supersymmetric QCD or its N = 1 dual "magnetic" version. We thus obtain a derivation of the N = 1 dualities of Seiberg.
