The use of molecular markers has revolutionized ecological genetics in the last 20 years. The fundamental problem facing new researchers is which of the many markers should be used and how the resulting data should then be analyzed. Until now, these guidelines have been hidden away in specialist journals.
Ecological Genetics addresses this fundamental problem in clear, accessible language, suitable for upper–level undergraduates through to research–level professionals.
The major topics in Ecological Genetics are treated within separate chapters, including:

genetic diversity of populations and species

gene flow

phylogeography, and

Within each chapter the potentially suitable molecular markers are described and the resulting data from each type of marker are discussed, including the underlying concepts of the various modes of analysis. These are illustrated with examples from both the plant and animal kingdoms.
Researchers embarking on molecular approaches to ecological genetics (for instance, final–year undergraduates and new postgraduates) will find the book essential, and more experienced researchers will also find it of interest.
