Evolutionary Genetics by Charles W. Fox

Book Description

The diverse field of evolutionary genetics is unified by two goals: to understand the impact that evolutionary processes have on genetic variation, and to understand the consequences of these patterns for various evolutionary process. Research in evolutionary genetics stretches across a continuum of scale, from studies of DNA sequence evolution (Ch. 7 and 9), to studies of multivariate phenotypic evolution (Ch. 20), across a continuum of time, from ancient events that lead to current species diversity (Ch. 28), to rapid evolution seen over relatively short time scales in experimental evolution studies (Ch. 31).

Year in Evolutionary Biology by Charles W. Fox Year in Evolutionary Biology, Paperback (September 2013)

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.

Conservation Biology by Charles W. Fox Conservation Biology, Hardback (September 2008)

This edited volume will provide a treatment of evolutionary conservation biology that introduces and explains major concepts and also unifies recent theoretical and empirical advances.

Evolutionary Genetics by Charles W. Fox Evolutionary Genetics, Hardback (April 2006)

The diverse field of evolutionary genetics is unified by two goals: to understand the impact that evolutionary processes have on genetic variation, and to understand the consequences of these patterns for various evolutionary process. This work talks about the research in evolutionary genetics that stretches across a continuum of scale.

Evolutionary Ecology by Charles W. Fox Evolutionary Ecology, Paperback (October 2001)

Unifies conceptual and empirical advances in evolutionary ecology. This volume is divided into five major sections: an overview of the major topics in evolutionary biology for ecologists, and sections on life histories, behaviour, co-evolution, and adaptation to athropogenic change.

Author Biography - Charles W. Fox

Charles Fox is an evolutionary ecologist who uses quantitative genetic approaches to study evolution and adaptation of ecologically important traits. He has coedited two previous books for Oxford University Press, Maternal Effects as Adaptations (1998) and Evolutionary Ecology: Concepts and Case Studies (2001). Jason Wolf is an evolutionary geneticist who integrates empirical and theoretical quantitative and population genetics to study the evolution of complex traits. He coedited Epistasis and the Evolutionary Process (2000).
