CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Molecular Ecology provides a comprehensive introduction to the many diverse
aspects of this subject. The book unites theory with examples from a wide range
of taxa in a logical and progressive manner, and its accessible writing style
makes subjects such as population genetics and phylogenetics highly
comprehensible to its readers. The first part of the book introduces the
essential underpinnings of molecular ecology, starting with a review of
genetics and a discussion of the molecular markers that are most frequently
used in ecological research. This leads into an overview of population genetics
in ecology. The second half of the book then moves on to specific applications
of molecular ecology, covering phylogeography, behavioural ecology and
conservation genetics. The final chapter looks at molecular ecology in a wider
context by using a number of case studies that are relevant to various economic
and social concerns, including wildlife forensics, agriculture, and overfishing
* comprehensive overview of the different aspects of molecular ecology
* attention to both theoretical and applied concerns
* accessible writing style and logical structure
* numerous up-to-date examples and references
This will be an invaluable reference for those studying molecular ecology,
population genetics, evolutionary biology, conservation genetics and
behavioural ecology, as well as researchers working in these fields.
