    Population Genetics and Behavior []. Population genetics described the statistical distribution of genes in a particular breeding population, such as a breed of dog, and examines the role of various biological effects on gene distribution. Principles of Plant Genetics and Breeding, 2nd Edition introduces both classical and molecular tools for plant breeding. Topics such as biotechnology in plant breeding, intellectual property, risks, emerging concepts (decentralized breeding, organic breeding), and more are addressed in the new, updated edition of this text.

    The first 10 chapters of the book have been devoted to principles of Animal Genetics, next 9 chapters to Population Genetics concerning with the genetic structure of population for qualitative and quantitative characters and last 8 chapters to Animal Breeding covering the methods of exploitation of genetic variation for the genetic improvement. Filling a void in existing literature on animal science, Animal Genetics introduces genetic principles and presents their application in production and companion animals. The book details population and quantitative genetics, epigenetics, biotechnology, and breeding among other topics.

    First published in , “Animal Breeding Plans” contains a detailed guide on animal breeding designed for students with experience of genetics, embryology, breeds, and stock judging. It aims to furnish the reader with a clear understanding of the means available for improving the heredity of farm animals, especially what each possible. Animal genetics is a foundational discipline in the fields of animal science, animal breeding, and veterinary sciences. While genetics underpins the healthy development and breeding of all living organisms, this is especially true in domestic animals, specifically with respect to breeding for key traits.

This is an excellent book on the theoretical basis of the application of population genetics to animal breeding, aimed primarily at those animal breeders who wish to know more about the fundamentals of their subject.

The examples used in detailed discussions of specific points are taken almost invariably from domestic animals. It is neither a textbook of population genetics nor one on animal Author: F. Pirchner.

When we look at both previous and subsequent developments in the application of population genetics to animal breeding we find that much of it has explicitly or implicitly been based on the infinitesimal model: it has very powerful simplifying statistical properties and avoids the need to specify individual gene effects, information on which has until recently been impossible to by: As animal breeder you start by defining what you want to improve in your population, collect information on the performance of the animals and their genetic relationships, determine which animals have the best genetic potential, determine what proportion you should use for breeding in order to achieve a certain genetic gain in the next generation, select the animals and mate them, and after producing.

This is a good book on population genetics, covering the more important aspects of livestock breeding. The author has done well by citing his examples, wherever possible, from experiments in livestock in preference to those in laboratory animals.
