Editorial Reviews

Review

“In any given year, Brian and Deborah Charlesworth think more deeply and creatively about evolutionary genetics than most of us do over our careers. The depth and breadth of their knowledge of both the data, ranging from life-history evolution to comparative genomics, and the relevant theory is nearly unparalleled. We’re lucky to have their synthetic overview of the field, which will be a valuable resource for advanced students and their teachers for many years.” Michael Turelli, University of California, Davis



“These two leaders of the field have given us a superb overview of evolutionary genetics. Their clear explanation of the key concepts is closely linked to biological examples, and especially, to the most recent data on genome evolution. This will be an essential text.” Nick Barton, IST Austria and the University of Edinburgh



“The Charlesworths are giants in the field of evolutionary genetics. They have written a textbook that is just what you would expect from them—clear, comprehensive, and authoritative. They somehow manage to smoothly blend theory and experiment, while also covering historical developments and modern controversies. The field desperately needed a new textbook at this level.  The Charlesworths have beautifully filled the gap.” Richard Hudson, University of Chicago

About the Author

Brian and Deborah Charlesworth obtained PhDs in genetics at Cambridge, and have subsequently worked at the Universities of Liverpool, Sussex, Chicago and Edinburgh, and are co-authors of a book about evolution for the general public. Brian is a Fellow of the Royal Society and Honorary Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and Deborah is a Fellow of the Royal Society. Both currently work on questions in population genetics, molecular evolution and genome evolution, and also on mating system evolution.

Format: Hardcover
I'm a grad student of behavioural ecology with a passion for all things evolution. In this day and age any firm understanding of evolution and adaptation must be deeply rooted in genetics and the Charlesworth's comprehensive text is an outstanding resource for relative newcomers, like myself, and for established researchers I'm sure. It very accessible though it doesn't skimp on theory so you have the choice of delving deep into the all the relevant equations and models or simply wandering through the main concepts. I can't recommend it enough to all those searching for a deeper understanding of evolution.

The Charlesworths have written a magnificent book on the subject. This book has only a few peers, albeit outdated. They are: Dobzhansky's "Genetics of the Evolutionary Process," and Lewontin's "The Genetic Basis of Evolutionary Change." I wholeheartedly endorse the reviews by Warren Ewens, Michael Turelli and Montgomery Slatkin. This is a book to be treasured and delved into repeatedly by anyone who is really interested in understanding the panoply among genetics (both molecular and organismic), evolution and ecology. Their dedication of the book to one of the grand minds in genetics - James Crow - is humbling!
