Conservation and the Genetics of Populations
Conservation and the Genetics of Populations This book is about applying the concepts and tools of genetics to problems in conservation. Our guiding principle in writing has been to provide the conceptual basis for understanding the genetics of biological problems in conservation. We have not attempted to review the extensive and ever-growing literature in this area.
Conservation and the Genetics of Populations Pdf
Our primary intended audience is broadly trained biologists who are interested in understanding the principles of conservation genetics and applying them to a wide range of particular issues in conservation.
This includes advanced undergraduate and graduate students in biological sciences or resource management, as well as biologists working in conservation biology for management agencies. The treatment is intermediate and requires a basic understanding of ecology and genetics.
This book is not an argument for the importance of genetics in conservation. Rather, it is designed to provide the reader with the appropriate background to determine how genetic information may be useful in any specific case.
The primary current causes of extinction are anthropogenic changes that affect ecological characteristics of populations (habitat loss, fragmentation, introduced species, etc.). However, genetic information and principles can be invaluable in developing conservation plans for species threatened with such effects.
The usefulness of genetic tools and concepts in the conservation of biological diversity is continually expanding as new molecular technologies, statistical methods, and computer programs are being developed at an increasing rate.
Conservation genetics and molecular ecology are under explosive growth, and this growth is likely to continue for the foreseeable future. Indeed we have recently entered the age of genomics. New laboratory and computational technologies for generating and analyzing molecular genetic data are emerging at a rapid pace.
