Editorial Reviews

From Book News

<:;st> The first edition (1980) is one of the 10 titles on quantitative genetics/population genetics cited in BCL3. For upper-level undergraduates and beginning graduate students with some background in genetics and population biology. Contains nine chapters with illustrations, boxed examples and problems. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Review

It is a pleasure to read this new edition of a classical textbook on population genetics. It shows very convincingly how population genetics has been revamped in the past 20 years by the introduction of new statistical and computational methods (in particular, coalescent theory), and the advent of genomic data, as well as how these developments changed a formerly rather arcane science and moved it toward the center of modern biology. … In summary, the essence of population genetics is nicely condensed in this book. The presentation is wonderfully balanced between theory and observation, as well as classical and recent data sets and analysis tools. --Wolfgang Stephan, The Quarterly Review of Biology --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
The fourth edition is excellent in that all major topics in modern population genetics are covered and with a minimal need for advanced math. However, there are numerous small errors in both the text and the answers to problems posted. These errors are not a major obstacle for advanced users, but can be confusing to students new to population genetics, and especially those that have not had a math course in recent years. I recommend it over other texts for teaching, but students and instructors should be aware that these errors exist.

I've looked at a few population genetics books and this is by far the most explanatory and up-to-date with the field of population genetics that I've seen (it even includes some post-human genome sequencing era related material). This book provides in-text references to original publications, providing you with a means to start exploring the topics in more detail (very handy in my own work as a young bioinformaticist). I highly recommend this book for those serious about learning population genetics.

Format: Hardcover
This textbook provides readears an overview of all basic concepts and theories in population genetics, and is greatly based on both classic and current literature. In addition, detailed information is given when the authors treat the key subjects of each chapter. Hypotetical and factual examples of easy comprehension help us to understand better the subjects. There are many exercises after theoretical chapters that improve our sense of interpretation. This textbook is perfect for basic and advanced studendts, as well as for genetics lovers.

A new revision of a work I already thought perfect. Adds population genetic approaches using new molecular techniques. Superb.
