Population geneticists study the genetic composition and variability of natural
populations as well as the theories that explain this variability in terms of natural
selection, mutation, recombination, genetic drift and gene flow. Population genetics
was first developed among eukaryotes in an attempt to reconcile Darwin’s theory of
evolution by natural selection and Mendelian genetics. When Darwin postulated that
natural selection is the main force of evolutionary change, a great controversy was

When it comes to advocating animal conservation, it is difficult to be
convincing without becoming alarmist. The fact is, time is running out for
many of the world’s animal species. Habitat loss, introduced species, overexploitation
and pollution, all caused by human activities, combine with
stochastic factors to place ever-increasing pressure on natural populations
The epidemiology of infectious diseases is one of the great triumphs of applied
ecology. In particular, the public health importance of parasites has
lead to a large literature, exploring their impact on the population dynamics,
population genetics and evolutionary biology of human populations. An
important milestone was the Dahlem Conference on population biology of infectious
diseases, held in 1981. The resulting book (Anderson and May 1982)
lucidly summarised the contemporary state of parasite ecology and epidemiology.
The theory and practice of molecular ecology draw on a number of subjects,
particularly genetics, ecology and evolutionary biology. Although the foundations
of molecular ecology are not particularly new, it did not emerge until the 1980s as
the discipline that we now recognize. Since that time the growth of molecular
ecology has been explosive, in part because molecular data are becoming increasingly
accessible and also because it is, by its very nature, a collaborative discipline.
In the last decade the progress of molecular biology has made a strong
influence on the theoretical framework of population genetics and evolution.
Introduction of molecular techniques in this area has resulted in many new
discoveries. As a result, a new interdisciplinary science, which may be called
'Molecular Population Genetics and Evolution', has emerged. In this book
I have attempted to discuss the development and outline of this science.
In recent years a large number of papers have been published on this
In population genetics, the focus changes from alterations in an individual's genome to the distribution pattern of different genotypes in the population. In a case where there are only two alleles, A and a, the frequency of the genotypes will be p2 + 2pq + q2 = 1, with p2 corresponding to the frequency of AA, 2pq to the frequency of Aa, and q2 to aa. When the frequency of an allele is known, the frequency of the genotype can be calculated. Alternatively, one can determine an allele frequency, if the genotype frequency has been determined.
Allele frequencies vary...
