About this book

Describes the principles and practices behind molecular techniques, methods which have not been taken seriously by ecologists until recently. As with all books in the series, it seeks to help researchers choose and employ a methodology for the solution to a particular ecological problem, taking all available approaches and methods for action into consideration.
