A Primer of Ecological Genetics
“Until now, a textbook aimed at undergraduates and early postgraduates, which integrates both population and quantitative genetics, has been lacking. In six chapters, Conner and Hartl have successfully filled this gap … The well-planned structure, easy reading style and extensive coverage make this book valuable not only to undergraduate students but also for population and quantitative geneticists aiming to expand their scope of their own research.”
—JM Cano Arias, Heredity
“I find that this volume will be very useful for both inspired undergraduates who plan on initiating honors studies or independent research, and for beginning graduate students. . . . This primer will help young biologists learn the nuts and bolts of ecological genetics, as well as its practical applications.”
—Jeffry B. Mitton, The Quarterly Review of Biology
“In sum, A Primer of Ecological Genetics provides a lucid introduction to foundational principles in the field. In their preface, Conner and Hartl state, ‘The guiding principle of the book is to focus on clear explanations of the key concepts in the evolution of natural and managed populations.’ The first edition of A Primer of Ecological Genetics accomplishes this nicely. I recommend it with enthusiasm.”
—Mark C. Ungerer, BioScience
“The new Primer of Ecological Genetics is absolutely terrific. The book is bound to go a long way in clearing up fuzzy thinking about basic concepts at the interface of evolution and ecology. Just as importantly, it will engender much better experimental design—and much clearer discussion of results—in future dissertations and the papers that follow from them.”
—John N. Thompson, University of California, Santa Cruz
