Conservation and the Genetics of Populations gives a comprehensive overview of the essential background, concepts, and tools needed to understand how genetic information can be used to develop conservation plans for species threatened with extinction.Provides a thorough understanding of the genetic basis of biological problems in conservation.Uses a balance of data and theory, and basic and applied research, with examples taken from both the animal and plant kingdoms.An associated website contains example data sets and software programs to illustrate populati
