About this book

Fine selection of papers from leading authors, summarising the state of current understanding of the extent of genetic variation within wild populations and the ways to monitor such variation. It proposes the idea that a fundamental objective of evolutionary ecology is to predict organism, population, community and ecosystem responses to environmental change.

The book can be recommended to both professionals and graduate students in genetics, biology, ecology, and evolution. Folia Geobotanica
