    The book Evolution and the Genetics of Populations, Volume 4: Variability Within and Among Natural Populations, Sewall Wright is published by University of Chicago Press. Population genetics is an extremely useful tool for studies of microevolution, population dynamics, and conservation genetics. When accessing the genetic constitution of a population, several parameters can be conserved such as phenotypic frequencies, genotype frequencies, allelic frequencies, gene flow, heritability, genetic correlation, genetic diversity, heterozygosity, and several other Author: Rafael Trindade Maia, Magnólia de Araújo Campos.

    DNA from the Beginning. This note covers the following topics: Children resemble their parents, Genes come in pairs, Some genes are dominant, Genetic inheritance, Genes are real things, cells arise from pre-existing cells, Sex cells, Specialized chromosomes determine gender, Chromosomes carry genes, Evolution begins with the inheritance of gene variation, Mendelian laws apply to human beings. ISBN: OCLC Number: Notes: Includes indexes. Description: xvi, pages: illustrations ; 24 cm. Contents: General Background and the Diversity of Genetic Variation --Approaches to Population Genetics --The Genetic Code --Structure of the Genome and a Typical Eukaryotic Gene --Introduction to Some Quantitative Topics --Models --Means, Variances, and.

    This book provides a detailed introduction to the genetic and demographic issues relevant to the conservation of fragmented populations such as demographic stochasticity; genetic erosion; inbreeding; metapopulation biology and population viability analysis. Loss of biodiversity is among the greatest problems facing the world today. Conservation and the Genetics of Populations gives a comprehensive overview of the essential background, concepts, and tools needed to understand how genetic information can be used to conserve species threatened with extinction, and to manage species of ecological or commercial importance.

It thus follows that adopting a landscape ecological perspective to metapopulation dynamics entails understanding how a spatial pattern, such as habitat fragmentation or heterogeneity, affects the processes that contribute to the dynamics of spatially structured populations.

There is also Genetics of Populations (Hedrick). I would tend to think that this last book presents lots of empirical population genetics data and doesn't take as much focus as the others in theoretical concepts (but I might be wrong).

Gillespie's book Population Genetics: A Concise Guide is a classic. It is short, very easy to follow and. Genetics of Populations (2nd edn) This book is a new edition, which has been revised to incorporate some of the recent ideas emerging from the molecular revolution, while still providing the Cited by: Abstract.

Population genetics is the science of genetic variation within populations of organisms. Population genetics focuses on the origin, amount, frequency, distribution in space and time, and phenotypic significance of that genetic variation, and with the microevolutionary forces that influence the fate of genetic variation in reproducing populations.

"This text integrates coverage of theoretical issues with a clear presentation of experimental population genetics and empirical data.

By drawing examples from both recent and classic studies, and by using a variety of organisms to illustrate the phenomena of population genetics, Genetics of Populations, Third Edition, provides students and researchers with the most comprehensive resource 5/5(1).

Written by a leading expert in the field, Genetics of Populations, Third Edition, is the most current and comprehensive introduction to genetics for both Advanced Undergraduate and Graduate students.

Population genetics is a subfield of genetics that deals with genetic differences within and between populations, and is a part of evolutionary s in this branch of biology examine such phenomena as adaptation, speciation, and population structure.

Population genetics was a vital ingredient in the emergence of the modern evolutionary synthesis. "The study of population genetics is one of the keys to understanding the evolutionary process.

This concise introduction offers students and researchers an overview of the discipline that connects genetics and evolution.

Addressing the theories behind population genetics and relevant empirical evidence, John Gillespie discusses genetic drift, natural selection, nonrandom mating, quantitative genetics, and the evolutionary advantage of sex.

less well each of a greater number of topics. If this book is mastered, then the rest of population genetics should be approachable. Population genetics is concerned with the genetic basis of evolution. It differs from much of biology in that its important insights are theoretical rather File Size: 8MB.

Population genetics is the study of genetic variation within populations, and involves the examination and modelling of changes in the frequencies of genes and alleles in populations over space and time.

Many of the genes found within a population will be polymorphic - that is, they will occur in a number of different forms (or alleles). Population genetics is also important in ecology and evolution, since changes in allele frequencies may be associated with migration or natural selection.
