    This book is an excellent combination of an introduction to population genetics theory for a mathematically sophisticated reader, together with a survey of current work in the field. Stanley Sawyer, SIAM Review, An introduction to population genetics: theory and applications. "A text for a one-semester course in population genetics. It introduces students to classical population genetics (in terms of allele and haplotype frequencies) and modern population genetics (in terms of coalescent theory).

    Population genetics is an elegant set of mathematical models developed by largely by R. A. Fisher and J. B. S. Haldane in England and Sewall Wright in the US. Continues to be developed by many mathematical, theoretical and experimental biologists today (see J. Crow and M. Kimura Introduction to Population Genetics Theory). Making the theory of population genetics relevant to readers, this book explains the related mathematics with a logical presents the quantitative aspects of population genetics, and employs examples of human genetics, medical evolution, human evolution, and endangered an introduction to, and understanding of.

    The work of Fisher, Haldane and Wright founded the discipline of population genetics. This integrated natural selection with Mendelian genetics, which was the critical first step in developing a unified theory of how evolution worked. Students of the mathematics of evolutionary theory and of quantitative inheritance have been handicapped in the past by the lack of a textbook which gives an account of the work of Pv. A. Fisher in a simplified yet logically complete fashion. Haldane has summarised his own early contributions to the mathematics of evolution in The Causes of Evolution (), and Li's book on population genetics Cited by:
