Overview

This volume provides up-to-date coverage of genetics and demography, fields that are closely related, but rarely combined.

As a comprehensive survey of a fast-growing field, this will be a valuable source of information for a wide spectrum of professionals in genetics, population biology, biostatistics, social and economic demography, and anthropology.
