This concise introduction offers students and researchers an overview of the discipline that connects genetics and evolution. Addressing the theories behind population genetics and relevant empirical evidence, John Gillespie discusses genetic drift, natural selection, nonrandom mating, quantitative genetics, and the evolutionary advantage of sex. First published to wide acclaim in 1998, this brilliant primer has been updated to include new sections on molecular evolution, genetic drift, genetic load, the stationary distribution, and two-locus dynamics. This book is indispensable for students working in a laboratory setting or studying free-ranging populations.Thus, the most fundamental innovations evolved in populations where the Hardy- Weinberg law is irrelevant! ... vizy12/4 (a11 + x12/2)(y11 + y12/2) Pfpm, where pf and pm are the frequencies of A1 in 18 Genetic Variation Answers to problems.
