Format: Hardcover
This text-book deals with population genetic theory in great detail, without loosing sight of the basics. This makes it a good introduction in population genetics as well as a complete reference work. With chapters on evolutionairy and quantative genetics and numerous examples this book describes the state of the art in population genetic research. Compared to Hartl and Clark's Introduction to Population Genetics, Genetics of Populations is more detailed and more clearly structured. Overall an excellent book.

Format: Hardcover
A superbly presented and comprehensive introduction to population genetics as one of the fundamental underlying principles and processes of the evolutionary process, Genetics Of Populations is now published in a newly updated and significantly revised third edition. Author Philip W. Hedrick (Arizona State University) integrates theoretical issues with a clear and acceptable presentation of experimental population genetics with empirical data providing students and researchers with one of the most articulate and up-to-date texts available. Features new to this latest addition is a focus on data from genome projects that compare population samples to identify patterns of genetic diversity and genes that have been under selection. All of the individual chapters have been completely updated with the latest examples and approaches in this rapidly evolving field of study. Of special value for curriculum development are the new and updated tables, chapter exercises, end-of-chapter problems, art, photographs, featured researchers, extensive bibliography, and detailed index. Highly recommended.

This textbook does a remarkable job of complicating even the most basic concepts in population genetics. It takes great pains to show how every imaginable formula is derived, but fails to mention the purpose and meaning of new variables introduced. The book is ambiguous about how similar concepts differ, as if the reader should disregard any nuance to the subject matter. Many explanations serve to confound the reader and espouse the tone of a pedantic author who is deliberately complicating introductory concepts so that they remain esoteric. This might be seen as a reference book for a professional or academic who is extremely familiar with the models and concepts described here, however even that is a stretch.

Used this book for a graduate level course on population genetics. We found it to be much too verbose and often confusing, and the examples did not provide enough information to work them through on your own. I learned a good deal about the concepts of population genetics, but this book flounders when it comes to teaching the application of these concepts. The prof picked this book because it is newer than the classic population genetics text (Hartl & Clark's "Principles of Population Genetics"), but told us at the end of the course that it would have been better to go with Hartl & Clark.

For a basic introductory population genetics text, this book is very good. I am an evolutionary biologist (graduate student) studying at the population level; this is a great book to keep at hand for a refresher on basic concepts as well as a very good overview of the field. Lots of practice problems to work on throughout; plenty of references to key works in the primary literature and experimental examples. Highly recommended.
