This book, by a well-respected senior lecturer in animal genetics, contains everything a veterinarian is likely to need to know about genetics, and more. The coverage is comprehensive, with emphasis on the interplay of biology and the environment with genetics. Important areas of population and quantitative genetics are treated as non-mathematically as possible, with more complete development available in extensive appendixes.
