Editors: Viktor T. Koven
Book Description:
Population genetics is the study of the allele frequency distribution and change under the influence of the four evolutionary forces: natural selection, genetic drift, mutation and gene flow. It also takes account of population subdivision and population structure in space. This new book presents the latest research in the field from around the globe.
