Conservation genetics is a discipline in its infancy. Its practitioners employ a range of molecular approaches to assess genetic variation within and between populations and to identify evolutionarily significant units for conservation action. Problems addressed in this book include: loss of genetic variation in small populations, inbreeding and loss of fitness, resolution of borderline taxa, genetic approaches to wildlife management and threatened species and overall contributions of molecular biology to conservation. The authors assume a basic understanding ..
