This is an introductory textbook with the emphasis on general principles rather than on practical applications. It covers a range of topics in genetics, including mutation, and this edition seeks to include the developments of the 20 years since the first edition and to provide more material on plants. Though the mathematics does not go beyond simple algebra (neither calculus nor matrix methods are used), the author does assume a knowledge of statistics, particularly of the analysis of variance and of correlation and regression. This edition now includes the problems, which were hitherto published separately, at the end of the relevant chapter. Solutions are provided. An ELBS/LPBB edition is available.

The lastest edition of this classic text continues to provide the basis for understanding the genetic principles behind quantitative differences in phenotypes and how they apply to animal and plant improvement and evolution. It extends these concepts to the segregation of genes that cause genetic variation in quantitative traits. Key techniques and methods are also covered.
