Principles of Population Genetics
|von Daniel L. Hartl|
From Book News, Inc. Introduces beginning graduate students and third- and fourth-year undergraduates to principles of genetics and statistics that are relevant to population studies. Topics include the measurement of genetic variation, molecular genetics, dominance, population frequencies and genotypes, inbreeding, mutations, recombination, migration, Darwinian selection, random genetic drift, and an evolutionary perspective on quantitative genetics. The authors assume a familiarity with the elementary notation for differentials and integrals. Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
Synopsis This work gives a presentation of theory and observation for students at the undergraduate and graduate level. It introduces the principles of genetics and statistics that are relevant to population studies, and examines the forces affecting genetic variation from the molecular to the organismic level. Integrated throughout the book are descriptions of molecular and other methods used to study natural populations as well as theory using actual data. Applications of the principles discussed are...
