DESCRIPTION

This book covers both classical population genetics theory developed in terms of allele and haplotype frequencies and modern population genetics theory developed in terms of coalescent theory. It features applications of theory to problems that arise in the study of human and other populations and assumes little prior knowledge of mathematics.
