The Mathematical Theory of Selection, Recombination, and Mutation R. Bürger University of Vienna, Austria "It is close to being a masterpiece...could well be the classic presentation of the area." Warren J. Ewens, University of Pennsylvania, USA Population genetics is concerned with the study of the genetic, ecological, and evolutionary factors that influence and change the genetic composition of populations. The emphasis here is on models that have a direct bearing on evolutionary quantitative genetics. Applications concerning the maintenance of genetic variation in quantitative traits and their dynamics under selection are treated in detail.

∗ Provides a unified, self–contained and in–depth study of the theory of mutilocus systems

∗ Introduces the basic population–genetic models

∗ Explores the dynamical and equilibrium properties of the distribution of quantitative traits under selection

∗ Summarizes important results from more demanding sections in a comprehensible way

∗ Employs a clear and logical presentation style

Graduate students and researchers in population genetics, evolutionary theory, and biomathematics will benefit from the in–depth coverage. This text will make an excellent reference volume for the fields of quantitative genetics, population and theoretical biology. Visit Our Web Page! [external URL]
