This book describes the results of a genetic research into the population and evolutionary history of carp, one of the oldest domesticated fish species. The common carp is widely distributed as a food fish and recently, its ornamental descendent -
the koi, became an appreciated pet around the world.
The chapters of this book describe the genetic structure of various carp populations, the inheritance rules of some color patterns in koi and the evolution of the tetraploid genome of this species. The author used classical and molecular genetic methods to study the above mentioned aspects of carp biology. The scientific reader will find a combination of classical and modern genetic views on carp biology that could explain why this species is so successful both in the nature and in aquaculture.
In this book, the carp farmers and koi keepers will find several insights into the genetics of commercially important traits and the impact of farming on carp genetic diversity
