Population Genetics, second edition

A Concise Guide

This concise introduction offers students and researchers an overview of the discipline that connects genetics and evolution. Addressing the theories behind population genetics and relevant empirical evidence, John Gillespie discusses genetic drift, natural selection, nonrandom mating, quantitative genetics, and the evolutionary advantage of sex. First published to wide acclaim in 1998, this brilliant primer has been updated to include new sections on molecular evolution, genetic drift, genetic load, the stationary distribution, and two-locus dynamics. This book is indispensable for students working in a laboratory setting or studying free-ranging populations.

About the Author

John H. Gillespie is a professor of evolution at the University of California, Davis.

Endorsements

"John Gillespie has done the near-impossible, condensing the essence of population genetics into a very short book. The result is a little gem. The derivations are simple and clear, and often strikingly original. The minor gaps in the first edition are filled by this equally concise second edition. Population genetics is a complicated subject; only a person of Gillespie's depth of knowledge and insight could simplify without distorting."
