I am looking for a book (or any good source of information) that offers an in-depth discussion and models about the evolution and analysis of complex traits and complex genetic architecture. Do you have any suggestions?

I'd define complex traits as those traits whose variance in the population is explained by quite a lot of various genetic loci and environmental factors.

Lynch and Walsh's Genetics and Analysis of Quantitative Traits (sinauer.com/genetics-and-analysis-of-quantitative-traits.html) is pretty comprehensive (if not necessarily comprehensible). –  kmm Apr 29 at 17:53
