About this book

Population Genetics and Microevolutionary Theory, Second Edition provides a solid basis in population genetics, with an emphasis on comprehending the biological implications of population genetic theory. Building on the success of the first edition, Population Genetics is now revised and expanded with coverage of the exciting new developments in the field, including new discoveries in epigenetics and genome-wide studies. Emphasizing that population structure forms the underlying template upon which quantitative genetics and natural selection operate, Population Genetics and Microevolutionary Theory prepares students to successfully apply population genetics analytical tools by providing a solid foundation in microevolutionary theory.

Population Genetics and Microevolutionary Theory, Second Edition is a must-read for future population and evolutionary geneticists, and for those who will be applying population genetic concepts and techniques in other areas such as genetic epidemiology and conservation biology.
