About this Textbook

Population biology has been investigated quantitatively for many decades, resulting in a rich body of scientific literature. Ecologists often avoid this literature, put off by its apparently formidable mathematics. This textbook provides an introduction to the biology and ecology of populations by emphasizing the roles of simple mathematical models in explaining the growth and behavior of populations. The author only assumes acquaintance with elementary calculus, and provides tutorial explanations where needed to develop mathematical concepts. Examples, problems, extensive marginal notes and numerous graphs enhance the book's value to students in classes ranging from population biology and population ecology to mathematical biology and mathematical ecology. The book will also be useful as a supplement to introductory courses in ecology.

Reviews

From the reviews

“This is the text of choice for mathematical population biology. It is both authoritative and pedagogical. It is the text I have been waiting for.” Simon Levin

“...the biology and mathematics of ecology are completely integrated. The book is well written and should be part of every student's early training in ecology.” R.F. Constantino
