Title: Molecular Tools for Screening Biodiversity ...
Book Condition: New
Book Type: Paperback
Paperback. 528 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 3.5in. x 1.1in.The conservation of natural genetic variation is important not only for ethical and aesthetic reasons but to ensure that the Earths living resources may be used even more efficiently and sustainably in agriculture, forestry, food production and other industries. In the past ten years there have been many advances in molecular biology that have provided a suite of powerful tools with enormous potential for the screening and evaluation of biodiversity. Molecular Tools for Screening Biodiversity was compiled in order to provide a comprehensive description and assessment of these tools. The book describes detailed laboratory protocols and analysis techniques and discussses how the techniques can best be employed to tackle different diversity problems. Also detailed case studies of techniques used in animals and plants which address different biodiversity problems are included. The book is divided into five parts. Molecular Tools for Screening Biodiversity is aimed at investigators with interests in conservation, population biology, taxonomy, evolution, molecular systematics and the industrial applications of plant and animal diversity.

Synopsis: Mark Chase There are many literature resources available to molecular biologists wishing to assess genetic variation, but the myriad of techniques and approaches potentially available to the plant breeder and the evolutionary biologist is truly bewildering, and most have never been evaluated side-by-side on the same sets of samples. Additionally, it is often not recognized that tools that are useful for breeders can often be adapted for use in evolutionary studies and vice versa, but this is generally the case. The borderline between population genetics and phylogenetics is vague and difficult to assess, and a combination of both types of tools is best when it is not clear with which area one is dealing. Furthermore, it is not now appropriate to use just one type of marker in any kind of study; most markers have the potential to misinform under certain conditions, so it is always wise to incorporate at least two different types of assessments into any project. This volume is designed to facilitate this sort of multiple approach and provides comparative data on most currently available methods so that researchers can more intelligently select those appropriate to their area of interest, regardless of whether it is in the realm of breeding or evolutionary biology.
