Professors Lynch and Walsh bring together the diverse array of theoretical and empirical applications of quantitative genetics in a work that is up-to-date, comprehensive and accessible to anyone with a rudimentary understanding of statistics and genetics. Central concepts are developed from first principles and illustrated with wide-ranging examples. The book reflects the recent influx of quantitative-genetic thinking into evolutionary biology and includes the latest techniques for QTL (quantitative-trait loci) analysis. Although written as a general text in quantitative genetics, the book will also serve as a basic reference for the seasoned professional.
