Population Genetics for Animal Conservation
It is widely accepted among conservation biologists that genetics is, more than ever,
an essential and efficient tool for wild and captive population management and reserve
design. However, a true synergy between population genetics and conservation biology is
lacking. Following the first International Workshop on Population Genetics for Animal
Conservation in 2003 at the Centro di Ecologia Alpina, Trento, Italy (recently incorporated
into the Edmund Mach Foundation), the scientific committee felt that, given the global
urgency of animal conservation, it was imperative that discussions at the conference were
made accessible to graduate students and wildlife managers. This book integrates ‘the
analytical methods approach’ with the ‘real problems approach’ in conservation genetics.
Each chapter is an exhaustive review of one area of expertise, and a special effort has been
made to explain the statistical tools available for the analysis of molecular data as clearly as
possible. The result is a comprehensive volume of the state of the art in conservation
genetics, illustrating the power and utility of this synergy.

Conservation Genetics at the University of Ferrara, Italy. He is the President and Co founder
of the Italian Society for Evolutionary Biology.

of Zoology, London, has been Professor and Research Group Leader at the Cardiff School of
Biosciences since 1999, where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in conserva
tion biology and molecular ecology.
H E I D I C . H A U F F E trained in Evolutionary Biology and established the first genetics labo
ratory at the Centro di Ecologia Alpina, Trento, Italy, in 1997. Now at the Edmund Mach
Foundation, her research interests range from rodent borne viruses to speciation to con
servation genetics of alpine mammals. She is also currently affiliated to the University of
York, UK, and the Institute of Vertebrate Biology, CZ.

is currently the Coordinator of the Environmental and Natural
Resources Division and Head of the Wildlife Ecology and Epidemiology Group at the
Edmund Mach Foundation. Her main research interests are host parasite interactions
and emerging zoonotic and vector borne diseases.
