Contents:
Contents; Preface and acknowledgements; 1 The extinction vortex, is genetic variation related to extinction?; 2 How to measure genetic variation; 3 Inbreeding, geographic subdivision, and gene flow; 4 Genetic diversity in changing environments; 5 Genes under selection: Mhc and others; 6 Local adaptation; 7 Ecological genomics; 8 An evolutionary conservation biology; References; Index
Summary: Conservation genetics focuses on understanding the role of genetic variation for population persistence. This book is about the methods used to study genetic variation in endangered species and whether genetic variation matters in the extinction of species. - ;Conservation genetics focuses on understanding the role and requirement of genetic variation for population persistence. However, considerable debate now surrounds the role of genetic factors (as opposed to non-genetic factors such as habitat destruction etc.) in population extinction, and a comprehensive synthesis is now timely.
