Conservation genetics focuses on understanding the role of genetic variation for population persistence. This book is about the methods used to study genetic variation in endangered species and whether genetic variation matters in the extinction of species.
Those in the fields of ecology, evolutionary biology, and conservation biology will find this book very helpful, as the author explains the often-confusing but central parts of conservation genetics in a straightforward manner. This book would be an excellent seminar course textbook for students. Overall, I like this book, for (a) its clear and concise presentation of material, (b) its thorough review of genetic studies pertaining to conservation of species, and (c) its choice of genetic studies presented.
