This work provides a guide to the experimental and analytical methodologies available to study quantitative traits, a review of the genetic control of quantitative traits and a discussion of how this knowledge can be applied to breeding problems and evolution. Mathematics is kept simple and brief and worked examples, both plant and animal, are used extensively. The possibilities opened up by the use of molecular genetic markers are explained and extensively discussed. A simulation package is available to accompany the text which provides the facility to generate illustrative data from a wide range of experimental protocols. This should be a valuable tool in taught courses.
