Published by Sinauer Associates, an imprint of Oxford University Press.
This book covers basic concepts in population and quantitative genetics, including measuring selection on phenotypic traits. The emphasis is on material applicable to field studies of evolution focusing on ecologically important traits. Topics addressed are critical for training students in ecology, evolution, conservation biology, agriculture, forestry, and wildlife management.
Employs mathematics and statistics at a level less advanced than most other textbooks in the field, benefiting students with a weaker background in maths Ensures students gain a solid grounding in the basic concepts before they progress to the more complex texts on population and quantitative genetics This text will serve as an introduction to anyone, student or professional, who is unfamiliar with population and quantitative genetics
Introduction.- Population Genetics I: Genetic Variation, Random and Non-random Mating.- Population Genetics II: Changes in Allele Frequencies.- Quantitative Genetics I: Genetic Variation.- Quantitative Genetics II: Advanced Topics.- Natural Selection on Continuous Phenotypic Traits.- Applied Ecological Genetics.- Glossary.

This book covers basic concepts in population and quantitative genetics, including measuring selection on phenotypic traits. The emphasis is on material applicable to field studies of evolution focusing on ecologically important traits. Topics addressed are critical for training students in ecology, evolution, conservation biology, agriculture, forestry, and wildlife management.

Many texts in this field are too complex and mathematical to allow the average beginning student to readily grasp the key concepts. A Primer of Ecological Genetics, in contrast, employs mathematics and statistics-fully explained, but at a less advanced level-as tools to improve understanding of biological principles. The main goal is to enable students to understand the concepts well enough that they can gain entry into the primary literature. Integration of the different chapters of
the book shows students how diverse concepts relate to each other.
