The goals of this book are twofold. First, it serves as a user s manual for the computer program NEWGARDEN (provided) designed to enable investigations, using computer generated populations, of population growth and genetic variation resulting from user-specified differences in initial founding conditions. Second, the book provides a series of examples of how differences in various founding conditions can result in significant differences in demographic and genetic variation trajectories for ensuing populations.
