Population ecology has matured to a sophisticated science with astonishing potential for contributing solutions to wildlife conservation and management challenges. And yet, much of the applied power of wildlife population ecology remains untapped because its broad sweep across disparate subfields has been isolated in specialized texts. In this book, L. Scott Mills covers the full spectrum of applied wildlife population ecology, including genomic tools for non-invasive genetic sampling, predation, population projections, climate change and invasive species, harvest modeling, viability analysis, focal species concepts, and analyses of connectivity in fragmented landscapes. With a readable style, analytical rigor, and hundreds of examples drawn from around the world, Conservation of Wildlife Populations (2nd ed) provides the conceptual basis for applying population ecology to wildlife conservation decision-making. Although targeting primarily undergraduates and beginning graduate students with some basic training in basic ecology and statistics (in majors that could include wildlife biology, conservation biology, ecology, environmental studies, and biology), the book will also be useful for practitioners in the field who want to find – in one place and with plenty of applied examples – the latest advances in the genetic and demographic aspects of population ecology.

Darwin's Origin of Species and Dobzhansky's Genetics and the Origin of Species have been the cornerstones of modern evolutionary and population genetic theory for the past hundred years, but in the twenty-first century, biologists will face graver problems of extinction. In this collection, a team of leading biologists demonstrates why the burgeoning field of conservation biology must continue to rely on the insights of population genetics if we are to preserve the diversity of living species. Technological and theoretical developments throughout the 1990s have allowed for important new insights into how populations have evolved in response to past selection pressures, while providing a broad new understanding of the genetic structure of natural populations. The authors explore these advances and argue for the applicability of new genetic methods in conservation biology. The volume covers such topics as the reasons for extinctions, the best ways to measure biodiversity, and the benefits and drawbacks of policies like captive breeding. Genetics and the Extinction of Species is a rich source of information for biologists and policymakers who want to learn more about the host of tools, theories, and approaches available for conserving biodiversity. In addition to the editors, the contributors to the volume are William Amos, Rebecca Cann, Kathryn Rodriguez-Clark, Leslie Douglas, Leonard Freed, Paul Harvey, Kent Holsinger, Russell Lande, and Helen Steers.

DNA typing of non-human DNA is a fast developing area of research and professional practice. The application of DNA typing in wildlife forensic science is one of these prime uses of DNA typing and is gaining increasing profile. The use of DNA profiling in wildlife forensic science falls into two broad areas: species testing and genetic linkage. Species testing answers the question ‘what species is this?’ and genetic linkage answers the question ‘did these two samples come from the same organism or population?’ Wildlife DNA Analysis: Applications in Forensic Science provides an accessible introduction to both of these key areas. Clearly structured throughout, the introduction highlights the different types of crime where these techniques are regularly used. This chapter includes a discussion as to who performs forensic wildlife examinations, the standardisation and validation of methods, and the role of the expert witness in this type of alleged crime. This is followed by a detailed section on the science behind DNA typing including the problems in isolating DNA from trace material and subsequent genetic analysis are also covered. The book then undertakes a comprehensive review of species testing using DNA, including a step-by-step guide to sequence comparisons. A comparison of the different markers used in species testing highlights the criteria for a genetic marker. A full set of case histories illustrates the use of the different markers used. The book details the use of genetic markers to link two or more hairs/feather/leaves/needles to the same individual organism and the software used in population assignment. The problems and possibilities in isolating markers, along with the construction of allele databases are discussed in this chapter. The book concludes with evaluation and reporting of genetic evidence in wildlife forensic science illustrated by examples of witness statements. •An accessible introduction to this fast developing area of research within forensic science •Case studies throughout to link theory and practice and to highlight the use of DNA testing in species testing. •Covers both crimes against wildlife and offences where wildlife can provide vital evidence •Assumes only a basic background knowledge of DNA •Includes a comprehensive review of species testing using DNA, including a step-by-step guide to sequence comparisons

This work combines the most up-to-date genetic research and the established historical record to conclusively prove that:(a) There is a clearly definable indigenous population in Britain;(b) That, in terms the United Nations Charter on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and other internationally accepted conventions protecting the rights of indigenous peoples, the British people qualify fully for protected status; and(c) That this United Nations Organisation-mandated protection specifically includes the right of the British people to be protected from the destruction of their identity through mass immigration, integration or genetic assimilation.The genetic make-up of the British people is then discussed, including an easy-to-understand explanation of- How people can be identified and linked to specific areas using modern genetics;- How genetic evidence shows that the vast majority-between 70 and 80%-of all British people have ancestors going back to the end of the last mini ice age;- How genetic evidence shows that the Celtic, Roman, Viking/Danish and Norman conquests had almost negligible impact upon the British people;- How genetic evidence has shown that even the much-reputed Anglo-Saxon invasions did not cause any mass population replacement within the British Isles.- How, therefore, the genetic evidence proves that the vast majority of the white British population have roots going back thousands of years on the British Isles.

Why do organisms become extremely abundant one year and then seem to disappear a few years later? Why do population outbreaks in particular species happen more or less regularly in certain locations, but only irregularly (or never at all) in other locations? Complex population dynamics have fascinated biologists for decades. By bringing together mathematical models, statistical analyses, and field experiments, this book offers a comprehensive new synthesis of the theory of population oscillations. Peter Turchin first reviews the conceptual tools that ecologists use to investigate population oscillations, introducing population modeling and the statistical analysis of time series data. He then provides an in-depth discussion of several case studies--including the larch budmoth, southern pine beetle, red grouse, voles and lemmings, snowshoe hare, and ungulates--to develop a new analysis of the mechanisms that drive population oscillations in nature. Through such work, the author argues, ecologists can develop general laws of population dynamics that will help turn ecology into a truly quantitative and predictive science. Complex Population Dynamics integrates theoretical and empirical studies into a major new synthesis of current knowledge about population dynamics. It is also a pioneering work that sets the course for ecology's future as a predictive science.

Molecular anthropology uses molecular genetic methods to address questions and issues of anthropological interest. More specifically, molecular anthropology is concerned with genetic evidence concerning human origins, migrations, and population relationships, including related topics such as the role of recent natural selection in human population differentiation, or the impact of particular social systems on patterns of human genetic variation. Organized into three major sections, An Introduction to Molecular Anthropology first covers the basics of genetics – what genes are, what they do, and how they do it – as well as how genes behave in populations and how evolution influences them. The following section provides an overview of the different kinds of genetic variation in humans, and how this variation is analyzed and used to make evolutionary inferences. The third section concludes with a presentation of the current state of genetic evidence for human origins, the spread of humans around the world, the role of selection and adaptation in human evolution, and the impact of culture on human genetic variation. A final, concluding chapter discusses various aspects of molecular anthropology in the genomics era, including personal ancestry testing and personal genomics. An Introduction to Molecular Anthropology is an invaluable resource for students studying human evolution, biological anthropology, or molecular anthropology, as well as a reference for anthropologists and anyone else interested in the genetic history of humans.

The hilsa shad, Tenualosa ilisha is an important anadromous clupeid species from the Western division of the Indo-Pacific region. It constitutes the largest single fishable species in Bangladesh. Information on genetic variability and population structure is very important for both management and conservation purposes. We examined genetic variability and divergence in two riverine (the Jamuna and the Meghna), two estuarine (Kuakata and Sundarbans) and one marine (Cox’s Bazar) populations of T. ilisha by applying PCR-RFLP analysis of the mtDNA D-loop region. The amplified PCR products were restricted with four restriction enzymes namely, XbaI, EcoRI, EcoRV, and HaeIII. High levels of haplotype and gene diversity within and significant differentiations among, populations of T. ilisha were observed in this study. The UPGMA dendrogram based on genetic distance resulted in two major clusters, although, these were subsequently divided into three, corresponding to the riverine, estuarine and marine populations. The study underlines the usefulness of RFLP of mtDNA D-loop region as molecular markers, and detected at least two differentiated populations of T. ilisha in Bangladesh waters.

Research in insect population dynamics is important for more reasons than just protecting forest communities. Insect populations are among the main ecological units included in the analysis of stability of ecological systems. Moreover, it is convenient to test new methods of analyzing population and community stability on the insect-related data, as by now ecologists and entomologists have accumulated large amounts of such data. In this book, the authors analyze population dynamics of quite a narrow group of insects – forest defoliators. It is hoped that the methods proposed herein for the analysis of population dynamics of these species may be useful and effective for analyzing population dynamics of other animal species and their effects and role in global warming. What can insects tell us about our environment and our ever-changing climate? It is through studies like this one that these important answers can be obtained, along with data on the insects and their behaviors themselves. The authors present new theories on modeling and data accumulation, using cutting-edge processes never before published for such a wide audience. This volume presents the state-of-the-art in the science, and it is an essential piece of any entomologist’s and forest engineer’s library.

Population genetics has made great strides in applying statistical analysis and mathematical modeling to understand how genes mutate and spread through populations over time. But real populations also live in space. Streams, mountains, and other geographic features often divide populations, limit migration, or otherwise influence gene flow. This book rigorously examines the processes that determine geographic patterns of genetic variation, providing a comprehensive guide to their study and interpretation. Geographical Genetics has a unique focus on the mathematical relationships of spatial statistical measures of patterns to stochastic processes. It also develops the probability and distribution theory of various spatial statistics for analysis of population genetic data, detailing exact methods for using various spatial features to make precise inferences about migration, natural selection, and other dynamic forces. The book also reviews the experimental literature on the types of spatial patterns of genetic variation found within and among populations. And it makes an unprecedented strong connection between observed measures of spatial patterns and those predicted theoretically. Along the way, it introduces readers to the mathematics of spatial statistics, applications to specific population genetic systems, and the relationship between the mathematics of space-time processes and the formal theory of geographical genetics. Written by a leading authority, this is the first c...

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Other, grade: 1.3, University of Koblenz-Landau (Anglistik), language: English, abstract: The new advances and tendencies in the application of genetic science evoke ethical, social, and legal concerns, as the immense progress in genetics is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, the completion of the Human Genome Project at the beginning of the 21st century and the recent progress in genetics come along with obvious benefits in genomic medicine such as better diagnosis of diseases and gene therapy. However, on the other hand, the new genetics bring along worries that the new genetics could lead to a society that is less tolerant of disability and (genetic) diversity. Moreover, after successfully having intervened in the transformation of animals and plants to human's liking, humans are now on the verge of manipulating the human genome so as to perfect the human species possibly, since the necessary genetic technology is now available.The movie Gattaca builds upon the scientific and technological advances in genetics in the late 20th century and displays a dystopian "not-too-distant" future. In the portrayed future, excessive genetic screening and embryo manipulation have brought about a rigidly hierarchical society grounded on genetic discrimination. Undeniably, there is an insurmountable social gap between these two classes. Gattaca thoughtfully portrays the lives of differ...

Although periodontitis does not follow Mendelian inheritance patterns, evidence is mounting of important hereditary influences. A number of aspects of the inflammatory and immune responses, that are suspected to play a role in the development of periodontal disease, have a clearly defined genetic basis. Possible associations between several of these aspects of immune defence and genotype have been discussed in the context of both family and population studies.

Ernst Heinrich Philipp August Haeckel (16 February 1834 – 9 August 1919) was a German biologist, naturalist, philosopher, physician, professor, and artist who discovered, described and named thousands of new species, mapped a genealogical tree relating all life forms, and coined many terms in biology, including anthropogeny, ecology, phylum, phylogeny, stem cell, and Protista. Haeckel promoted and popularised Charles Darwin's work in Germany and developed the influential but no longer widely held recapitulation theory ("ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny") claiming that an individual organism's biological development, or ontogeny, parallels and summarises its species' evolutionary development, or phylogeny.

Grain amaranth (Amaranthus hypochondriacus L.) production has declined mainly due to lack of producer awareness of its nutritive value, non-availability of suitable high yielding varieties and lack of improved production techniques. Varietal improvement is needed to increase yield potential of this crop. Proper plant densities is essential in maximizing grain yield. In this context, there is an imperative need for the breeders to evaluate and identify the stable genotypes that could give standard performance when tested under different plant density levels. Population density is a major environmental factor influencing the genetic parameters like variability, heritability and genetic advance among the characters. Study of the extent of such influence of different plant density levels in these genetic parameters is required to formulate appropriate breeding strategies.

Turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) is one the best known among various taxa of economic, medicinal (anti-cancerous, healing, blood purifier properties), ornamental and cultural importance of the genus Curcuma. India and Thailand with at least 40 species in each area have the highest diversity. Genetic variability in a population can be partitioned into heritable and non-heritable variation with the aid of genetic parameters such as variance, genotypic coefficient of variation, heritability and genetic advance, which serve as a basis for selection of some outstanding genotypes from existing ones. Cluster analysis have proved to be effective methods in grouping turmeric accessions that may facilitate effective utilization of the accession in crop improvement programmes through selection, as conventional breeding is difficult in this crop. Moreover, correlation and path analysis of morphological traits indicated importance of desirable traits for strengthening the turmeric breeding programme for higher rhizome yield.

Pollinia is a cohesive mass of pollen. We aim to evaluate the evolutionary trends of pollen morphology within the genus Dendrobium in the light of molecular phylogeny and to test whether pollen morphology may be considered as predictor of inter- and/or intra-specific phylogenetic relationship. A systematic study of 18 species from North-East India was conducted by means of numerical analysis based on 12 micrmorphometric descriptors and SEM ultra-structure. A phylogenetic tree from ribosomal ITS2 sequences was used as reference. Variations in the shape of pollinia were distinct and consistent with five section of the genus Dendrobium and three clads of the section Dendrobium. Other qualitative/quantitative keys to pollinia showed congruence with molecular phylogeny and supported the correlated evolution of these traits. Concurrently pollen sculpturing also showed large variation in exine morphology providing explicit clues for phylogenetic trend of exine evolution. Thus Dendrobium pollen is a good candidate for inferring the genetic relationship at inter- and intra-specific level rather than deducing the ecological adaptation.

Human association with the Asian elephant began thousands of years ago. The Asian elephants are distributed over the continental main land and also in certain Islands of south and south-east Asia. Habitat loss and the pressures of the human population have already reduced the Asian elephants to a small fraction of its past area. Now they are only in 13 countries in fragmented and isolated population. The total population of Asian elephant in the wild is estimated to be between 34,000 and 54,000. In Bangladesh the number of Asian elephant is not more than 400; among them 90 to 94 individuals are living in Chittagong Forest Division. Elephant habitat of Chittagong Forest Division supports at least 177 species of flora and 173 species of fauna. The main cause of man elephant conflict is crop raiding which was only 1.61% of total crop cultivated in the studied elephant habitat. Conservation of a flagship species is very effective in modern management practice. The study aims to emphasize the conservation needs and community participation for saving elephants; and should be especially useful to professionals in conservation field, wildlife ecologist and policy makers.

In India, Maize (Zea mays L.) ranks fourth next to rice, wheat and sorghum. In spite of its maximum share in area, the relative contribution is much lower mainly due to extremes of water availability. Evolving varieties tolerant to drought offers low cost technology and is one of the most efficient methods of reducing crop loss, stabilizing the production and economic returns. An understanding of genetic architecture of such traits will enable the breeder to formulate efficient breeding strategies, which aids in evolving varieties tolerant to drought on sound genetic background. The monograph on genetic investigations on maize explains production of single cross hybrids, their evaluation, estimation of general and specific combining ability variances and effects, gene action and kinds of heterosis of hybrids for yield and morpho-physiological parameters under water stress.

Grain production is a complex phenomenon, entailing several contributing factors. These factors influence grain production both directly and indirectly and the breeder is naturally interested in investigating the extent and type of association of such traits. Towards a clear understanding of the type of association, correlation, path and divergence analysis are logical steps. Studies like heritability estimates could also be helpful to know the performance of parents in hybrids. Similarly, Knowledge on the extent and the pattern of genetic variability present in a population is essential for further improvement of any crop. At present, there is lack of detailed information pertaining to these aspects. Therefore, this book intends to show comprehensive logical steps that a plant scientist should follow to reach a concrete conclusion on the variability and genetic relation of different characters taking an experiment conducted in bread wheat as an example. The book is important for plant breeders and other plant scientists interested in learning more about the ways of crop improvement.

In 1951, the geneticist Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza was teaching in Parma when a student--a priest named Antonio Moroni--told him about rich church records of demography and marriages between relatives. After convincing the Church to open its records, Cavalli-Sforza, Moroni, and Gianna Zei embarked on a landmark study that would last fifty years and cover all of Italy. This book assembles and analyzes the team's research for the first time. Using blood testing as well as church records, the team investigated the frequency of consanguineous marriages and its use for estimating inbreeding and studying the relations between inbreeding and drift. They tested the importance of random genetic drift by studying population structure through demography of the last three centuries, using it to predict the spatial variation of frequencies of genetic markers. The authors find that drift-related genetic variation, including its stabilization by migration, is best predicted by computer simulation. They also analyze the usefulness and limits of the concept of deme for defining Mendelian populations. The genetic effect of consanguineous marriage on recessive genetic diseases and for the detection of dominance in metric characters are also studied. Ultimately bringing together the many strands of their massive project, Cavalli-Sforza, Moroni, and Zei are able to map genetic drift in all of Italy's approximately 8,000 communes and to demonstrate the relationship between each locality'...

Data about rare genetic disorders in Iraqi patients is not available. Iraq is a country that has been in turmoil due to the devastating impact of three major wars and a long period of imposed economic sanctions over three decades. The development of genetic research in this country has been markedly hampered. Relatively common genetic disorders in Iraq include Down's syndrome, hemoglobinopathies (B-thalassemias, and sickle cell anemia), glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase (G6 PD) deficiency, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and achondroplasia. In an experience extending over about 20 years we have documented the rarest genetics in Iraqi patients. Some of these disorders are very rare through out the world such as Coffin Siris syndrome and cutis laxa type II (Debre type) some of these disorders is very rare in Arab population such as Nephropathic cystinosis and Aicardi syndrome. A new clinical association of a genetic nature has been observed for the first time in Iraqi patients. A very rare combination of two genetic disorders was also observed.

Plant yield and quality are complex characters depending upon a number of genetic factors interacting with the environment. The development of superior variety is based on magnitude of genetic variability in the base population and extent of heritability of desired character. The limited variability in durum wheat owing to its evolutionary history is of great concern in improving its yield potential. Yield enhancement could be obtained indirectly by improving yield components which are controlled by a number of genes with small additive effect which are called as Quantitative Trait Loci (QTLs). Ability of the wild progenitor species to improve yield and quality characters is well known.Thus, there is a scope to improve the protein content and other quality parameters and quality of various products made from durum wheat through the transfer of alien genes from the related wild progenitor species.

Rice is the staple food for over half the world's population, and is the globe's most popular food that shapes religious festivals, customs, cuisine and celebrations. Even though rice needs assured irrigation to complete its life cycle, about 45 per cent of the global rice area is under rainfed cultivation, which frequently undergoes drought situation. To improve adaptability of the crop under rainfed ecosystem, heterosis breeding for drought associated traits utilizing diverse germplasm is one of the best methods to improve genetic background of the crop. Diallel mating method helps to find out the best combiner parents utilizing combination of crosses among all inbred lines. This book blends information on the mating design and combining ability studies to identify superior parents and cross combinations for heterosis or pedigree method of breeding. Experimenting Diallel mating design using different physiological and agronomical drought associated traits are well explained in this book. This study and methodologies involved in it can be very useful to plant scientists and breeders in formulating and implementing breeding programmes for drought tolerance.

Master's Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Biology - Ecology, grade: 53.60, , course: Applied Ecology and Conservation, language: English, abstract: Species distribution modeling to predict and map appropriate habitat for endangered species is critical for monitoring and restoration of their population decline in natural habitat. However, data on distribution of endangered species are limited. Egyptian Vulture (Neophron percnopterus) is one of the endangered species in the world that its population has been declining by 50% in the last three decade. In this study, we have tried to test the predicted distribution of potentially suitable habitat for Egyptian Vulture in Iraq by using Maxent as species distribution model. To achieve these aims, we could be done with species distribution model outputs of Egyptian Vulture from occurrence data assembled from Nature Iraq and made distribution predictions, demonstrating how landscape and environmental variables may affect the species distribution and we determined their importance and compared known habitat of Egyptian Vulture from KBAs with predicted habitat predictions from Maxent. The model performed very well. The AUC value is 0.870, which is better than random prediction. The results indicate that one of the precipitation inputs, bio_13, contributed 54.3% to the final description of potential habitat for the Egyptian Vulture. This provides evidence that precipitation, particularly precipitation of wettest month, is the...

Wheat (Triticum aestivum. L) is an important cereal, used as staple food and a good source of income in different countries. It is providing food to the one third of world's population. Wheat grain is highly venerated for a number of products. To feed the increasing population of world is a great challenge for researchers. The only way to tackle this challenge is to develop new genotypes with good yield potential and to enhance the potential of available genotypes. Breeding strategies for high potential varieties made on the basis of scientific and agronomic knowledge is good way to achieve this goal. Both quality and quantity of grain are important targets to improve. Genetic analysis is one of best tools to exploit the potential of species for application on commercial scale. It will not only enable us to feed humanity but also direct to use natural resources in proper way.

Conservation and the Genetics of Populations gives a comprehensive overview of the essential background, concepts, and tools needed to understand how genetic information can be used to conserve species threatened with extinction, and to manage species of ecological or commercial importance. New molecular techniques, statistical methods, and computer programs, genetic principles, and methods are becoming increasingly useful in the conservation of biological diversity. Using a balance of data and theory, coupled with basic and applied research examples, this book examines genetic and phenotypic variation in natural populations, the principles and mechanisms of evolutionary change, the interpretation of genetic data from natural populations, and how these can be applied to conservation. The book includes examples from plants, animals, and microbes in wild and captive populations. This second edition contains new chapters on Climate Change and Exploited Populations as well as new sections on genomics, genetic monitoring, emerging diseases, metagenomics, and more. One-third of the references in this edition were published after the first edition. Each of the 22 chapters and the statistical appendix have a Guest Box written by an expert in that particular topic (including James Crow, Louis Bernatchez, Loren Rieseberg, Rick Shine, and Lisette Waits). This book is essential for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of conservation genetics, natural resource management, and conservation biology, as well as professional conservation biologists working for wildlife and habitat management agencies.

DNA typing of non-human DNA is a fast developing area of research and professional practice. The application of DNA typing in wildlife forensic science is one of these prime uses of DNA typing and is gaining increasing profile. The use of DNA profiling in wildlife forensic science falls into two broad areas: species testing and genetic linkage. Species testing answers the question ‘what species is this?’ and genetic linkage answers the question ‘did these two samples come from the same organism or population?’ Wildlife DNA Analysis: Applications in Forensic Science provides an accessible introduction to both of these key areas. Clearly structured throughout, the introduction highlights the different types of crime where these techniques are regularly used. This chapter includes a discussion as to who performs forensic wildlife examinations, the standardisation and validation of methods, and the role of the expert witness in this type of alleged crime. This is followed by a detailed section on the science behind DNA typing including the problems in isolating DNA from trace material and subsequent genetic analysis are also covered. The book then undertakes a comprehensive review of species testing using DNA, including a step-by-step guide to sequence comparisons. A comparison of the different markers used in species testing highlights the criteria for a genetic marker. A full set of case histories illustrates the use of the different markers used. The book details the use of genetic markers to link two or more hairs/feather/leaves/needles to the same individual organism and the software used in population assignment. The problems and possibilities in isolating markers, along with the construction of allele databases are discussed in this chapter. The book concludes with evaluation and reporting of genetic evidence in wildlife forensic science illustrated by examples of witness statements. •An accessible introduction to this fast developing area of research within forensic science •Case studies throughout to link theory and practice and to highlight the use of DNA testing in species testing. •Covers both crimes against wildlife and offences where wildlife can provide vital evidence •Assumes only a basic background knowledge of DNA •Includes a comprehensive review of species testing using DNA, including a step-by-step guide to sequence comparisons
