An Introduction to Molecular Ecology combines theoretical concepts with practice-driven examples to showcase the latest molecular and genomic techniques and their impact on the study of ecology. The opening chapters introduce the essential molecular and genetic concepts that underpin the subject and describe key molecular tools and methods available to the ecologist. Capturing the broad scope of the field, the book goes on to explore the use of molecular tools in the context of behaviouralecology, population genetics, phylogeography, conservation, and microbial ecology. The third edition includes coverage of exciting new technological and analytical developments, such as next generation sequencing, which have revolutionized the field over the last decade. Molecular ecology is now in a position to tackle some truly ecological questions for the first time since itsinception. Blending conceptual detail with the most instructive examples, An Introduction to Molecular Ecology is an ideal resource for those new to the subject needing to develop a strong working understanding of the field. Online Resource Centre: The Online Resource Centre to accompany An Introduction to Molecular Ecology features: For students: * Suggested review articles to take your learning further * Links to useful websites and software * A range of questions to consolidate your learning and understanding For registered adopters of the book: * Journal Club; suggested research papers and discussion questions linked to topics featured in the book * Figures from the textbook to view and download
