This book is a comprehensive introduction to the use of molecular markers in evolution, ecology and phylogeny. Very well written, this second edition brings important updates to a field in fast progress.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Aesop on October 28, 2007
Format: Paperback
A very comprehensive volume dealing with all aspects of molecular methods in ecology and evolution. However, I would NOT recommend this book to individuals with little or no background in population genetics and/or molecular phylogenetics. The author assumes the reader has the basic knowledge in these disciplines and does not discuss introductory concepts. I also find the style of writing to be more complex than necessary.
