9780199292059: An Introduction to Molecular Ecology

How do we know whether a particular species is monogamous or promiscuous? How can we monitor the illegal trafficking of wildlife? How can we differentiate between the many similar species making up a microbial community? An Introduction to Molecular Ecology introduces the latest molecular concepts and techniques, demonstrating how genetic markers and molecular tools can be used to answer such ecological questions. Such questions, whose answers were previously out of our reach, can now be probed, thereby revolutionizing our understanding of ecological systems and phenomena.

Blending conceptual detail with the most instructive examples, An Introduction to Molecular Ecology is an ideal resource for those new to the subject needing to develop a strong working understanding of the field. The book captures the broad scope of the subject, exploring the use of molecular tools in the context of topics including behavioral genetics, phylogeography, microbial ecology, and conservation.

Features
· Demonstrates the power of molecular ecology as a research tool in a style ideally suited for an undergraduate audience
· Uses practical examples to demonstrate the latest methods and concepts rather than relying exclusively on theoretical models
· Blends factual content with tools for active learning

Review:

"I would like to congratulate the authors for providing such a good textbook in introductory molecular ecology. Molecular ecology is an emerging interdisciplinary field with a great potential for future growth. Writing a textbook in such a field is a daunting task and the authors did an overall
excellent job." - Dr Jianping Xu, McMaster University

"This text has filled the need for a comprehensive introductory text in molecular ecology. The topics covered are of great interest to students in biology, and the authors have done an excellent job of illustrating the concepts with examples from the primary research literature that represent well the taxonomic diversity of molecular ecological studies."--Keith Karoly, Reed College
