Cover for Population genetic issues: new insights using conventional molecular markers and genomics tools.

This chapter explains how molecular markers have been used and continue to be used to understand aphid life cycles, including population structure and dynamics and overwintering. Without repeating all the discoveries concerning these topic areas as outlined earlier, it refers briefly to the major...
