Introduction to quantitative genetics


, : Introduction to quantitative genetics. Introduction to quantitative genetics (Ed. 3): xii + 438

There can be few quantitative geneticists today who were not 'brought up' on earlier editions of Douglas Falconer's book, and the elegance and clarity of its exposition must have influenced quite a number of biologists to pursue an interest in the field. It is nearly 30 years since the first edition appeared, and 8 since the second. The first edition was reprinted 7 times, and the second edition 5 times.
