    Get this from a library! A primer of molecular population genetics. [Asher D Cutter] -- "What are the genomic signatures of adaptations in DNA? How often does natural selection dictate changes to DNA? How does the ebb and flow in the abundance of individuals over time get marked onto. I personally like the Primer on Population Biology by Wilson and Bossert. For a book that is almost 45 years old, it holds up pretty well. One of the best things about this book is that they provide examples and then walk through the solutions step by step.

    Introduction to Evolutionary Genomics. Authors: Saitou, Naruya The opening chapters describe the fundamental concepts in molecular biology and genome evolution for readers without any prior background in this area. overview will also prove invaluable to researchers from both computer science and the biological sciences seeking a primer Brand: Springer International Publishing.   This completely revised, fourth edition of Introduction to Plant Population Biology continues the approach taken by its highly successful predecessors. Ecological and genetic principles are introduced and theory is made accessible by clear, accurate exposition with plentiful examples/5(5).

    Many dire predictions have been made about the world’s population leading to a major crisis called the “population explosion.” In the book The Population Bomb, biologist Dr. Paul R. Ehrlich wrote, “The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash. A primer of conservation biology by Richard B.

Like other primers, this book covers many of the core concepts of ecology, particularly population ecology, but Stevens goes into greater depth, presenting many of the complexities of core ecological processes.

In Edward O. Wilson et al. used the term in the sense of applying mathematical models to population genetics, community ecology, and population dynamics. Alan Hastings used the term in as the title of his book on the mathematics used in population dynamics.

The name was also used for a course given at UC Davis .
