Theory of Population Genetics and Evolutionary Ecology by Jonathan Roughgarden, , Macmillan edition, in English.   This practical book covers all aspects of the biology of malaria vectors, with notes on the vectors of dengue. It is the first work in this field to concentrate on mosquitoes, rather than covering all disease vectors. Authored by renowned field entomologist Jacques Derek Charlwood, it disseminates his vast experience working on mosquito biology, ecology and the evaluation of new vector control.

Population genetics has undoubtedly been one of the most important fields in the conservation, management, and restoration of native plant and animal species. population ecology is central to. For more than an hour he spoke about population and ecology, about birth control and sterilization, to an audience of tens of millions. After that, Ehr­lich returned to the show many times.

Within the discipline of ecology, researchers work at four specific levels, sometimes discretely and sometimes with overlap. These levels are organism, population.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Pimentel, David, Genetics and ecology of population control. [Reading, Mass., Addison-Wesley Pub. Contributors discuss topics related to population genetics and ecology, including the determinants of genetic variation in natural populations; experimental design and analysis of field and laboratory data; and theory and applications of mathematical models in population genetics.

The book describes a number of field and laboratory studies that. Purchase population genetics and ecology - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBNBook Edition: 1. Ecological genetics is the study of genetics in natural populations.

Traits in a population can be observed and quantified to represent a species adapting to a changing environment. This contrasts with classical genetics, which works mostly on crosses between laboratory strains, and DNA sequence analysis, which studies genes at the molecular level. Ecology, Genetics and Evolution of Metapopulations is acollection of specially commissioned articles that looks at fragmented habitats, bringing together recent theoretical advances and empirical studies applying the metapopulation approach.

Several chapters closely integrate ecology with genetics and evolutionary biology, and others illustrate. Population ecology has matured to a sophisticated science with astonishing potential for contributing solutions to wildlife conservation and management challenges.

And yet, much of the applied power of wildlife population ecology remains untapped because its broad sweep across disparate subfields has been isolated in specialized texts. In this book, L.

Scott Mills covers the full spectrum of. A particular aspect of the book is the attempt to connect the disciplines of population biology and landscape ecology. This is long overdue and represents a significant step in the progression towards workable models.

very stimulating and relevant to my interest in conservation genetics." --BRITISH ECOLOGICAL SOCIETY BULLETIN. The term `pest' in this book is used in its broadest sense and includes insects, pathogens, weeds, nematodes, etc. The book commences by outlining the basic principles which underlie pest control (crop husbandry, socio-economics, population ecology and population genetics) and reviews the control mesures available and their use in IPM systems.

Reviews. As indicated in the preface, the editors agree with Thomas Henry Huxley, author of the foundational book The introduction to the Study of Zoology (), that " crayfish are an ideal model organism for study."The editors carry out their intent in ten chapters that cover taxonomy and identification; population genetics; growth and reproduction; behavior; chemical ecology.

Population genetics of the invasive ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi in Europe reveal source–sink dynamics and secondary dispersal to the Mediterranean Sea.

Marine Ecology. Cell Biology and Genetics. This book is divided in to two sections. Section A introduces cells, the molecular and structural organizations of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, cell division, nucleic acids, colloidal systems and techniques in cell biology.

TL;DR. I'd recommend Population Genetics: A Concise Guide (Gillespie) for an introduction to population/evolutionary genetics. I'd recommend A Biologist's guide to mathematical modelling in evolution and ecology (Otto and Day) if you want to ensure your knowledge in mathematics by learning their application to evolutionary biology.

General Entry Books to Population Genetics. Figure Genetic drift in a population can lead to eliminating an allele from a population by chance. In this example, rabbits with the brown coat color allele (B) are dominant over rabbits with the white coat color allele (b).In the first generation, the two alleles occur with equal frequency in the population, resulting in p and q values of The Genetics Society of America (GSA), founded inis the professional membership organization for scientific researchers and educators in the field of genetics.

Monographs in Population Biology is a continuing series of books intended to examine important aspects of the ecology and evolution of plants and animals.

Embracing both theoretical and empirical studies in a variety of subject areas, the series aims at well-written books that emphasize synthesis, fresh insights, and creative speculation. A synthesis of contemporary analytical and modeling approaches in population ecology The book provides an overview of the key analytical approaches that are currently used in demographic, genetic, and spatial analyses in population ecology.

The chapters present current problems, introduce advances in analytical methods and models, and demonstrate the applications of quantitative methods to. The subject reviews covered in the book include classic as well as modern approaches to Rhizoctonia research in: Taxonomy and Evolution, Genetics and Pathogenicity, Plant-Rhizoctonia Interactions, Ecology, Population and Disease Dynamics, Disease Occurrence and Management in Various Crops, Cultural Control, Biological Control, Germplasm for.

Recent technological advances have resulted in a dramatic renaissance of population genetics and its application to species ecology and conservation.

This review summarizes the progress made in applying these new techniques, notably hypervariable genetic markers (microsatellite loci and mitochondrial control region), to the study of marsupials.
