The role of genetics in conserving small populations: Proceedings of a British Ecological Society Symposium 1997
This compilation of papers from the British Ecological Society (BES) Ecological Genetics and Conservation Ecology Group's symposium, held at York in 1995, looks at genetic conservation. The aim of the symposium was to bring together conservation practitioners and genetic researchers to explore the significance of genetics in conserving and managing small populations of plants and animals.
Following the meeting, an editorial board oversaw production of the symposium proceedings. Each paper was refereed by two members of the editorial board and some by specialist external referees. All 18 papers are included in the volume, together with summaries of three of the poster presentations.
Please note this volume has been produced from a scan of an original document, and is therefore a large file size. There may also be fluctuations in quality.
Due to the file size of the volume, it has been split into two parts. Part 1 includes the Preface and acknowledgements; and Sections 1 and 2; Part 2 includes Sections 3, 4 & 5.
