not yet rated|write a review
Charles Fox and Jason Wolf have brought together leading researchers to produce a cutting-edge primer introducing readers to the major concepts in modern evolutionary genetics. This book spans the continuum of scale, from studies of DNA sequence evolution through proteins and development tomultivariate phenotypic evolution, and the continuum of time, from ancient events that lead to current species diversity to the rapid evolution seen over relatively short time scales in experiemental evolution studies. Chapters are accessible to an audience lacking extensive background inevolutionaryy genetics but also current and in-depth enough to be of value to established researchers in evolution biology.

Charles Fox is an evolutionary ecologist who uses quantitative genetic approaches to study evolution and adaptation of ecologically important traits. He has coedited two previous books for Oxford University Press, Maternal Effects as Adaptations (1998) and Evolutionary Ecology: Concepts and Case Studies (2001). Jason Wolf is an e...
