Genes in the Environment by Rosie S. Hails

Book Description

Molecular, genetic and modelling techniques are central to ecology, providing valuable new tools for addressing complex ecological questions and insights into our understanding of the dynamics of populations and communities. Genes in the Environment reviews a diverse range of topics, including community dynamics in soils and water, gene flow and spatial dynamics, and the evolution of pathogenic and symbiotic relationships. Organisms studied range from bacteria, viruses and fungi to insects, plants and fish. New light is thrown on such questions as: what is the relationship between population dynamics and spatial patterns of genetic variation observed in fragmented populations? How is genetic variation maintained? What are the relative roles of gene flow and selection in the maintenance of climes? This volume will appeal to advanced students and to researchers interested in developments at the interface of molecular biology and ecology.

Provides a comprehensive review of dispersal and its implications for modern ecology.

Modern Statistics for the Life Sciences by Rosie S. Hails Modern Statistics for the Life Sciences, Paperback (March 2002)

Teaching statistics in a different way, this book provides several methods of model formulae and the General Linear Model. It is aimed at undergraduate students in the life sciences, and also for many graduate students.

Introduction to Ecological Modelling by Rosie S. Hails Introduction to Ecological Modelling, Paperback (February 1997)

At present, most books on ecological modelling rely on very complex mathematics, resulting in students and researchers shying away from investigating the potential uses of ecological models and their methods of construction. This new book aims to open up this exciting area to a much wider audience.
