About this Item

Large octavo in rustic brown cloth; xiv, 591 pages illustrations 24 cm; bibliographical references (pages 517-575). From the library of Nobel laureate Dr. Donald A. Glaser, inventor of the bubble chamber; search keyword DGLSR for more collectible titles from the Glaser collection || Contents: 1. Models of population growth : Model 1: discrete, nonoverlapping generations ; Model 2: continuous random births and deaths ; Model 3: overlapping generations, discrete time intervals ; Model 4: overlapping generations, continuous change ; Fisher's measure of reproductive value ; Regulation of population number ; Problems -- 2. Randomly mating populations : Gene frequency and genotype frequency ; The Hardy-Weinberg principle ; Multiple alleles ; X-linked loci ; Different initial gene frequencies in the two sexes ; Two loci ; More than two loci ; Polyploidy ; Subdivision of a population: Wahlund's principle ; Random-mating proportions in a finite population ; Problems -- 3. Inbreeding : Decrease in heterozygosity with inbreeding ; Wright's inbreeding coefficient ; Coefficients of consanguinity and relationship ; Computation of f from pedigrees ; Phenotypic effects of consanguineous matings ; The effect of inbreeding on quantitative characters ; Some examples of inbreeding effects ; Regular systems of inbreeding ; Inbreeding with two loci ; Effect of inbreeding on the variance ; The inbreeding effect on a finite population ; Hierarchical structure of populations ; Effective population number ; Problems -- 4. Correlation between relatives and assortative mating ; Genetic variance with dominance and epistasis, and with random mating ; Variance components with dominance and inbreeding ; Identity relations between relatives ; Correlation between relatives ; Comparison of consanguineous and assortative mating ; Assortative mating for a single locus ; Assortative mating for a simple multifactorial trait ; Multiple alleles, unequal gene effects, and unequal gene frequencies ; Effect of dominance and environment ; Effects of assortative mating on the correlation between relatives ; Other models of assortative mating ; Disassortative-mating and self-sterility systems ; Problems -- 5. Selection : Discrete generations: complete selection ; Discrete generations: partial selection ; Continuous model with overlapping generations ; The effects of linkage and epistasis ; Fisher's fundamental theorem of natural selection: single locus with random mating ; The fundamental theorem: nonrandom mating and variable fitnesses ; The fundamental theorem: effects of linkage and epistasis ; Thresholds and truncation selection for a quantitative trait ; A maximum principle for natural selection ; The change of variance with selection ; Selection between and within groups ; Haldane's cost of natural selection ; Problems. 6. Populations in approximate equilibrium : Factors maintaining gene frequency equilibria ; Equilibrium between selection and mutation ; Equilibrium under mutation pressure ; Mutation and selection with multiple alleles ; Selection and migration ; Equilibrium between migration and random drift ; Equilibrium under selection: single locus with two alleles ; Selective equilibrium with multiple alleles ; Some other equilibria maintained by balances selective forces ; Selection and the sex ratio ; Stabilizing selection ; Average fitness and genetic loads : Kinds of genetic loads and definitions ; The mutation load ; The segregation load ; The incompatibility load ; The load due to meiotic drive. Evolutionary advantages of Mendelian inheritance ; Problems -- 7. Properties of a finite population : Increase of homozygosity due to random gene frequency drift ; Amount of heterozygosity and effective number of neutral alleles in a finite population ; Change of mean and variance in gene frequency due to random drift ; Change of gene frequency moments with random drift ; The variance of a quantitative character within and between subdivided populations ; Effective.
