Description : This is a concisely presented and precise outline of the subjects matter of population genetics, addressed to all those who are concerned and have interest in this rich subject. The topics covered in the book include: • Importance of genes in the continuity of a population and the gene frequency analysis; • Deviation from the infinitely large sample sie of the population leading to various types and forms of random genetic drift; • Neutral genes and the problem of panmixia;; • Method of detecting inbreeding intensities and their effects; • Gene flow and changes in genetic structure of the population; • The process of natural selection, and the idea of in clusive fitness and affecting the social life of animals and men, pointing out the irrelevance of Social Darwinism in Science; • Use of population genetics in the study of classical genetics, Pedigree analyses and changes and genetics of complex variations and the principles of quantitative genetics; • Glossary, certain statistical formations, the use of x2 test, t test, analysis of variance or F-test, relative ratios and that of correlation, and the concept of randomness. The discussion is brief and often critical, making this book outshine many contemporary textbooks found in the market. It is expected that readers will develop a clear and thorough understanding of the foundation of this subject of study and associated statistical analysis after going through the book.

Description : The advances made possible by the development of molecular techniques have in recent years revolutionized quantitative genetics and its relevance for population genetics. Population Genetics and Microevolutionary Theory takes a modern approach to population genetics, incorporating modern molecular biology, species-level evolutionary biology, and a thorough acknowledgment of quantitative genetics as the theoretical basis for population genetics. Logically organized into three main sections on population structure and history, genotype-phenotype interactions, and selection/adaptation Extensive use of real examples to illustrate concepts Written in a clear and accessible manner and devoid of complex mathematical equations Includes the author's introduction to background material as well as a conclusion for a handy overview of the field and its modern applications Each chapter ends with a set of review questions and answers Offers helpful general references and Internet links

Description : A authoritative summary of the current knowledge of the genetic organisation of bacterial populations.
Description : This is the first of a planned two-volume work discussing the mathematical aspects of population genetics with an emphasis on evolutionary theory. This volume draws heavily from the author’s 1979 classic, but it has been revised and expanded to include recent topics which follow naturally from the treatment in the earlier edition, such as the theory of molecular population genetics.
Description : Modern landscape research uses a panoply of techniques to further our understanding of our changing world, including mathematics, statistics and advanced simulation techniques to combine empirical observations with known theories. This book identifies emerging fields and new challenges that are discussed within the framework of the ‘driving forces’ of Landscape Development. the book addresses all of the ‘hot topics’ in this important area of study and emphasizes major contemporary trends in these fields.
Description : Recently, technological progress and the rise of DNA barcoding efforts have led to a significant increase in the availability of molecular datasets on intraspecific variability. Carcinologists and other organismal biologists, who want to use molecular tools to investigate patterns on the scale of populations, face a bewildering variety of genetic markers, analytical methods, and computer programs from which to choose. A modern overview of population genetic and phylogeographic studies, Phylogeography and Population Genetics in Crustacea offers insights to guide research on intraspecific genetic variation in crustaceans. Combining theory and case studies of current best practices, the book helps researchers select methods of analysis and interpret their results. The theoretical chapters discuss the potential of currently used and upcoming molecular markers in the context of marine non-model species. They also gather practical tips and address the effect of seldom-discussed sources of error, such as spatial and temporal variation, stochasticity, and choice of statistical parameters. Case studies of marine and limnic crustaceans from around the world highlight the importance and diversity of sources of population structure in intraspecific variation. Written by an international team of 46 leading experts, the book showcases the use and analysis of molecular markers, including mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequence data, coding and non-coding sequences, microsatellites, and cytogenetics. It gives researchers and students a valuable summary of current knowledge on the processes that shape genetic variability and geographic distribution patterns in space and time.
