Rezensionen
"To achieve these goals, the book design emphasizes a well explained introductions to key principles and predictions. These are augmented with case studies as well as illustrations along with introductions to classical hypotheses and debates." (Zentralblatt MATH, 2012)

"The most catching aspect of Hamilton's book is its extremely well thought-out structure and pedagogical concept. All sections are well motivated in the respective introduction and all chapters have reviews at the end. A large number of problems have been interspersed throughout the text for students to work on, and the solutions are provided at the end of each chapter. A very interesting and novel feature is the use of so-called 'interact boxes', which are essentially links to interactive learning and simulation software available on the internet." (Human Genetics, December 2009)

"Hamilton's volume would be the best choice for someone seeking a thorough grounding in the subject." (The Quarterly Review of Biology, April 2010)

"Both population biologists and upper-level biology students will appreciate the relatively clear explanations of exceptionally difficult material." (CHOICE, November 2009)
