Introduction to Quantitative Genetics Summary


Introduction to Quantitative Genetics by D.S. Falconer

This is an introductory textbook with the emphasis on general principles rather than on practical applications. It covers a range of topics in genetics, including mutation, and this edition seeks to include the developments of the 20 years since the first edition and to provide more material on plants. Though the mathematics does not go beyond simple algebra (neither calculus nor matrix methods are used), the author does assume a knowledge of statistics, particularly of the analysis of variance and of correlation and regression. This edition now includes the problems, which were hitherto published separately, at the end of the relevant chapter. Solutions are provided. An ELBS/LPBB edition is available.
