Summary
"The text is presented in an easy-to-follow format, with main points and terms clearly highlighted. Worked examples are provided throughout to help illustrate key equations. A glossary and suggestions for further reading provide additional support for the reader and many beautiful pen-and-ink portraits of endangered species help bring the material to life." "Written for short, introductory-level courses in genetics, conservation genetics and conservation biology, this book will also be suitable for practising conservation biologists, zoo biologists and wildlife managers needing a brief, accessible account of the significance of genetics to conservation."--BOOK JACKET
