An Introduction to Molecular Ecology

Third Edition

Graham Rowe, Michael Sweet, and Trevor Beebee

  • Covers the latest technological and conceptual advances in molecular ecology
  • Detailed case studies and examples explore molecular ecology in practice
  • Quantitative tools panels, paired with data analysis exercises, help students develop essential quantitative skills
  • Essay topics and online Journal Clubs promote critical thinking and bridge the gap between textbook and primary literature

New to this Edition:

  • New Chapter 4, 'Next generation sequencing', introduces the ongoing revolution within molecular ecology due to the widespread uptake of the still recent 'next generation' DNA sequencing (NGS) technologies
  • A further two new chapters bring together some of the results of the introduction of NGS into molecular ecology; Chapter 12 looks at the sequencing of 'Genomes', whilst Chapter 13 discusses how NGS can be applied in a broader 'Genomics' context
  • A series of online Journal Clubs encourage students to delve into the burgeoning primary research literature
