    This book was developed from my set of notes for the Population Biology graduate group core class (PBGG) and Undergraduate Population and Quantitative Genetics class (EVE102) at UC Davis. Thanks to the many students who've read these notes and suggested improvements. Thanks to Simon Aeschbacher, Vince Buffalo, Erin Calfee, and Michael Whitlock who read and extensively edited earlier drafts of these notes. To illustrate these notes I've used old scientific and natural history illustrations, in part because they are out of copyright but mainly because they bring me joy. Many of the old images come from Biodiversity Heritage Library a consortium of natural history institutions that are digitizing their collections and make them freely available online.
