From the Back Cover:

An elegant introduction to population genetics

Written in the context of new molecular techniques for geneticanalysis, Population Genetics and Microevolutionary Theorytakes a modern approach to population genetics, incorporatingtoday's molecular biology, species-level evolutionary biology, anda thorough acknowledgment of quantitative genetics as thetheoretical basis for population genetics.

Logically organized into three main sections—populationstructure and history, genotype/phenotype, andselection/adaptation—the text stresses a multidimensionalmodel of evolution throughout, examining how multiple factorsworking together lead to biological phenomena. Three simplepremises of DNA behavior are used to derive population geneticstheory, and quantitative genetics is discussed as a foundation forunderstanding natural selection. Real examples illustrate concepts,with many examples taken from human genetics and evolution.

Population Genetics and Microevolutionary Theory alsofeatures:

  • An introduction to background material
  • A conclusion providing a handy overview of the field and itsmodern applications
  • Review questions and answers at the end of each chapter
  • An appendix on genetic survey techniques
  • An appendix on statistical analysis and theory
  • Helpful general references and Internet links

Written in a clear and accessible manner, without complexmathematical equations, Population Genetics andMicroevolutionary Theory gives graduate and advancedundergraduate students an elegant introduction to this key field ofmodern biology.
