Adaptive Genetic Variation in the Wild by Timothy A. Mousseau
Book DescriptionTwo of the great mysteries of biology yet to be explored concern the distribution and abundance of genetic variation in natural populations and the genetic architecture of complex traits. These are tied together by their relationship to natural selection and evolutionary history, and some of the keys to disclosing these secrets lie in the study of wild organisms in their natural environments. This book, featuring a superb selection of papers from leading authors, summarizes the state of current understanding about the extent of genetic variation within wild populations and the ways to monitor such variation. It proposes the idea that a fundamental objective of evolutionary ecology is necessary to predict organism, population, community, and ecosystem response to environmental change. In fact, the overall theme of the papers centers around the expression of genetic variation and how it is shaped by the action of natural selection in the natural environment. Patterns of adaptation in the past and the genetic basis of traits likely to be under selection in a dynamically changing environment is discussed along with a wide variety of techniques to test for genetic variation and its consequences, ranging from classical demography to the use of molecular markers. This book is perfect for professionals and graduate students in genetics, biology, ecology, conservation biology, and evolution.

Part of The Year in Evolutionary Biology series, this title includes reviews on: gene loss, thermogenesis, and the origin of birds; sexual selection in the light of molecular evolutionary genetics; the nine-spined stickleback, an emerging model in evolutionary biology; and the evolutionary consequences of interspecific aggression.
Maternal Effects as Adaptations, Hardback (May 1998)» View all books by Timothy A. Mousseau
Phenotypic variation is influenced by both genetic and environmental variation. One important source of environmental variation is the maternal effect: influences of the maternal environment on offspring phenotype.
