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
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.

"This book is a pleasure to read: it is clearly written, well organized and leaves no ambiguity." Andre A Dhondt, Cornell University, Trends in Ecology and Evolution, August 2004
"This book is a well–written, comprehensive overview of the essential techniques underlying ecological genetics. I would certainly recommend it to any new student undertaking postgraduate study in the field of molecular ecology." Dr. Jim Provan, Queen′s University Belfast
