Ecological Genetics addresses the fundamental problems of which of the many molecular markers should be used and how the resulting data should be analysed in clear, accessible language, suitable for upper-level undergraduates through to research-level professionals.

  • A very accessible straightforward text to deal with this difficult topic - applying modern molecular techniques to ecological processes.
  • Written by active researchers and teachers within the field.
  • There will be an accompanying web site managed by the authors, comprising of worked examples, test data sets and hyperlinks to relevant web pages.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Molecular ecologists finally have a text-book that deals with their discipline. Ecological Genetics fills the market-gap between general accounts of evolutionary biology and specialist texts focusing on individual research topics. The authors have brought together a useful mix of theory, practical approaches, conceptual issues, and individual case studies to provide a balanced and accessible overview of the field. Peter Hollingsworth, Royal Botanic Garden

"This book is a pleasure to read: it is clearly written, well organized and leaves no ambiguity." Andre A Dhondt, Cornell University, Trends in Ecology and Evolution, August 2004

"This book is a well-written, comprehensive overview of the essential techniques underlying ecological genetics. I would certainly recommend it to any new student undertaking postgraduate study in the field of molecular ecology." Dr. Jim Provan, Queen's University Belfast

Meet the Author

Dr Andrew Lowe recently took up a position as Research Lecturer in Ecological Genetics at the University of Queensland, Australia, after serving as a Senior Scientific Research Officer at the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Edinburgh, UK. He manages a global network of highly regarded research projects on speciation and hybridization, range-wide phylogeography and fine-scale population gene dynamics, and has published more than 50 articles and papers on these subjects in scientific journals and books.

Dr Stephen Harris is Druce Curator of the Oxford University Herbaria, UK. As a University Research Lecturer he teaches in plant conservation genetics, and his research interests are molecular systematics, conservation genetics, and the effects of human activities on plant genetic variation and speciation. He has published more than 50 articles and papers on these subjects in scientific journals and books.

Dr Paul Ashton is a Senior Lecturer in Botany at Edge Hill College of Higher Education, UK. He was instrumental in implementing one of the UK’s first degree programs in Conservation Biology. He is also an Associate Lecturer with the Open University and has recently developed a small research group to continue his long-held interests in plant speciation and introgression, while developing new interests in conservation genetics.
