About this book

The ideas of geneticists and ecologists have tended to remain separate. This textbook, which has grown out of the author's years of experience in teaching evolution and population genetics - aims to draw together these two disciplines - in examining species diversity, and also the genetic diversity of species within populations.

Contents

Part I: Species abundance. Species diversity. Explanations. Dynamics. Part II: Population processes. Populations. Genes. Gene frequency. Genetic variability in natural populations. Polymorphism and ecological genetics. Response to selection by pesticides. Population consequences of selection. Polymorphism by neutral mutation. Gene interaction models for polymorphism. Genetic variability - conclusions. Part III: Population genetics and evolution. Species formation and evolution. Species associations.
