Population Genetics and Microevolutionary Theory

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The advances made possible by the development of molecular techniques have in recent years revolutionized quantitative genetics and its relevance for population genetics. Population Genetics and Microevolutionary Theory takes a modern approach to population genetics, incorporating modern molecular biology, species-level evolutionary biology, and a thorough acknowledgment of quantitative genetics as the theoretical basis for population genetics. Logically organized into three main sections on population structure and history, genotype-phenotype interactions, and selection/adaptation. Extensive use of real examples to illustrate concepts. Written in a clear and accessible manner and devoid of complex mathematical equations. Includes the author's introduction to background material as well as a conclusion for a handy overview of the field and its modern applications. Each chapter ends with a set of review questions and answers. Offers helpful general references and Internet links.
