These are augmented with case studies as illustrations along with introductions to classical hypotheses and debates. Pedagogical features in the text include ... ; Interact boxes that guide readers step-by-step through computer simulations using public domain software. Math boxes that fully explain mathematical derivations..; Methods boxes that give insight into the use of actual genetic data. Numerous Problem boxes are integrated into the text to reinforce concepts as they are encountered. This text also offers a highly accessible introduction to coalescent theory, the major conceptual advance in population genetics of the last two decades."@en ;
