Description

This accessible primer has been completely revised and updated to provide a concise but comprehensive introduction to the basic concepts of population genetics and genomics.

  • Provides a concise, accessible introduction to understanding evolution and genetics/genomics at the population level
  • Includes a broad taxonomic range of examples - human, animal, plant, and microbe population genetics and genomics
  • Places emphasis on the history of the subject as well as the clear exposition of mathematical models
  • Consolidates learning with numerous in-text problems for students to apply concepts as they encounter them
