Introduction to Conservation Genetics

Introduction to Conservation Genetics

This impressive author team brings the wealth of advances in conservation genetics into the new edition of this introductory text, including new chapters on Population Genomics and Genetic Issues in Introduced and Invasive Species. They continue the strong learning features for students - main points in the margin, chapter summaries, vital support with the mathematics, and further reading - and now guide the reader to software and databases. Many new references reflect the expansion of this field. With examples from mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians, plants and invertebrates, this is an ideal introduction to conservation genetics for a broad audience. The text tackles the quantitative aspects of conservation genetics, and has a host of pedagogy to support students learning the numerical side of the subject. Combined with being up-to-date, its user-friendly writing style and first-class illustration programme forms a robust teaching package.


"The book's broad approach and reader-friendly presentation will ensure that it will continue to be the standard textbook on this subject."
Peter Moore, Bulletin of the British Ecological Society

'… this important book should be compulsory reading …' Pacific Conservation Biology

'… a good introduction to the topic. There are strong diagrams to aid understanding and a range of summaries, reading lists and problems to stretch the mind further.' TEG News

'… given its breadth and up-to-date treatment of the literature, the text should be of considerable value to students interested in conservation genetics and to the professional who needs a complete reference.' TRENDS in Ecology Evolution

'… the second edition of Introduction to Conservation Genetics should provide an excellent basis for developing an introductory graduate or upper-level undergraduate course on conservation genetics. Instructors should also be able to incorporate some material into more general courses on conservation biology, population genetics, or evolution … However, the utility of this new edition is not limited to classroom instruction. Scientists looking to learn more about this research area can use it to gain a basic foundation, and specialists will find it a handy tool for quick cross-referencing of the field's primary literature.' Plant Science Bulletin

'… a commendable degree of detailed information … the book's broad approach and reader-friendly presentation will ensure that it will continue to be the standard textbook on this subject.' Bulletin of the British Ecological Society
