Conservation genetics is an interdisciplinary subfield of Population Genetics that aims to understand the dynamics of genes in populations principally to avoid extinction. Therefore, it applies genetic methods to the conservation and restoration of chers involved in conservation genetics come from a variety of fields including population genetics, molecular ecology, biology.

This book provides a detailed introduction to the genetic and demographic issues relevant to the conservation of fragmented populations and presents two sets of case studies, one on animals, the other on plants, which illustrate a variety of approaches to examine long-term population : Paperback.

“Once again, Conservation of Wildlife Populations: Demography, Genetics, and Management is a great contribution to the current wildlife literature and will no doubt prove to be an excellent and indispensible resource when training wildlife biologists, upper level undergraduate students, and graduate students.”Cited by:   Theory and empirical examples suggest that demography is usually of more immediate importance than population genetics in determining the minimum viable sizes of wild populations.

Pri-mary demographic factors affecting population dynamics include social structure, life history variation caused by environmental fluctuation, dispersal in spatially heteroge.

Theory and empirical examples suggest that demography is usually of more immediate importance than population genetics in determining the minimum viable sizes of wild populations. The practical need in biological conservation for understanding the interaction of demographic and genetic factors in extinction may provide a focus for fundamental.

This book provides a detailed introduction to the genetic and demographic issues relevant to the conservation of fragmented populations such as demographic stochasticity; genetic erosion; inbreeding; metapopulation biology and population viability analysis.

This concise, entry level text provides an introduction to the GENETICS AND DEMOGRAPHY IN BIOLOGICAL CONSERVATION book of genetic studies in conservation and presents the essentials of the discipline in an easy-to-follow format, with main points and terms clearly highlighted.

The authors assume only a basic knowledge of Mendelian genetics and simple statistics, making the book accessible to those with a limited 5/5(1).

Professor L. Scott Mills has been named a Guggenheim Fellow by the board of trustees of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. Conservation of Wildlife Populations provides an accessible introduction to the most relevant concepts and principles for solving real-world management problems in wildlife and conservation biology.

This book integrates 'the analytical methods approach' with the 'real problems approach' in conservation genetics. Each chapter is an exhaustive review of one area of expertise, and a special effort has been made to explain the statistical tools available for the analysis of molecular data as clearly as by: It follows naturally from the widely accepted Darwinian dictum that failures of populations or of species to adapt and to evolve under changing environments will result in their extinction.

Population geneti­ cists have proclaimed a centerstage role in developing conservation biology. Review. “Once again, Conservation of Wildlife Populations: Demography, Genetics, and Management is a great contribution to the current wildlife literature and will no doubt prove to be an excellent and indispensible resource when training wildlife biologists, upper level undergraduate students, and graduate students.” /5(21).Conservation genetics deals with the genetic factors that affect extinction risk and genetic management regimes required to minimise these risks.

There are 11 major genetic issues in conservation biology: • The deleterious effects of inbreeding on reproduction and survival (inbreeding depression).
