Evolution : a very short introduction by Brian Charlesworth( Book )

31 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 1,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In less than 500 years science has completely transformed our view of our origins and relationship with the universe. This incisive and though-provoking book introduces some of the most important findings and concepts of evolutionary biology, such as the formation and divergence of species, adaptation, mutation, and natural selection. Brian and Deborah Charlesworth trace the progress of evolutionary thought from the first publications of Darwin and Wallace over 140 years ago, to recent evidence provided by studying evolution at the molecular level. The book ends by showing how evolutionary ideas illuminate some of the hardest questions in modern biology, such as why ageing happens and why some animals behave altruistically
Introduction to plant population ecology by Jonathan W Silvertown( Book )

29 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This completely revised, fourth edition of Introduction to Plant Population Biology continues the approach taken by its highly successful predecessors. Ecological and genetic principles are introduced and theory is made accessible by clear, accurate exposition with plentiful examples. Models and theoretical arguments are developed gradually, requiring a minimum of mathematics. The book emphasizes the particular characteristics of plants that affect their population biology, and evolutionary questions that are particularly relevant for plants
Elements of evolutionary genetics by Brian Charlesworth( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Evolutionary genetics considers the causes of evolutionary change and the nature of variability in evolution. The methods of evolutionary genetics are critically important for the analysis and interpretation of the massive datasets on DNA sequence variation and evolution that are becoming available, as well for our understanding of evolution in general. This book shows readers how models of the genetic processes involved in evolution are made (including natural selection, migration, mutation, and genetic drift in finite populations), and how the models are used to interpret classical and molecular genetic data. The material is intended for advanced level undergraduate courses in genetics and evolutionary biology, graduate students in evolutionary biology and human genetics, and researchers in related fields who wish to learn evolutionary genetics. The topics covered include genetic variation, DNA sequence variability and its measurement, the different types of natural selection and their effects (e.g. the maintenance of variation, directional selection, and adaptation), the interactions between selection and mutation or migration, the description and analysis of variation at multiple sites in the genome, genetic drift, and the effects of spatial structure. The final two chapters demonstrate how the theory illuminates our understanding of the evolution of breeding systems, sex ratios and life histories, and some aspects of genome evolution."--Publisher's website

Evolution : Brian and Deborah Charlesworth by Brian Charlesworth( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about the crucial role of evolutionary biology in transforming our view of human origins and relation to the universe, and the impact of this idea on traditional philosophy and religion. It explains the most important basic findings and procedures in the area
The genetic structure of populations by Albert Jacquard( Book )

3 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is part of the ideology of science that it is an international enterprise, carried out by a community that knows no barriers of nation or culture. But the reality is somewhat different. Despite the best intentions of scientists to form a single community, unseparated by differences of national and political viewpoint, they are, in fact, separated by language. Scientific literature in German is not generally assimilated by French workers, nor that appearing in French by those whose native language is English. The problem appears to have become more severe since the last war, because the ascendance of the United States as the preeminent economic power led, in a time of big and expensive science, to a pre dominance of American scientific production and a growing tendency (at least among English-speakers) to regard English as the international language of science. International congresses and journals of world circulation have come more and more to take English as their standard or official language. As a result, students and scientific workers in the English speaking world have become more linguistically parochial than ever before and have been cut off from a considerable scientific literature. Population genetics has been no exception to the rule. The elegant and extremely innovative theoreticaI work of Malecot, for example, is only now being properly assimilated by population biologists outside France. It was therefore with some sense of frustration that I read Prof

Molecular evolution under low recombination by Vera B Kaiser( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Analyzing regions in the genome with low levels of recombination helps understand the prevalence of sexual reproduction. Here, I show that variability in regions of reduced recombination in Drosophila can be explained by interference among strongly deleterious mutations; selection becomes progressively less effective in influencing the behaviour of neighbouring sites as the number of closely linked sites on a chromosome increases. I also show that the accumulation of loss-of-function mutations on the neo-Y chromosome of Drosophila miranda is compatible with a model of selection against such mutations alone, without the need to invoke the action of selective sweeps. I describe the discovery of two new sex-linked genes in the plant Silene latifolia, SlCyt and SlX9/SlY9. SlCyt has been recently translocated from an autosome to the X and shows signs of a selective sweep. Its possible role in having caused recombination arrest between the evolving X and Y chromosome is discussed. SlX9 still has an intact Y-linked copy that is presumably functional. Nucleotide diversity at SlY9 is very low, whereas SlX9 has an unusually high diversity and shows signs of introgression from S. dioica into S. latifolia, but the effect of this seems very localized
