Population Ecology synopsis
The environment is dominated by popular imagination as never before, with issues such as climate change, species extinction and habitat destruction becoming more prominent. At the same time, ecology is progressing dramatically, growing in mathematical and theoretical evolution.
Here, two prominent experts present the basic quantitative principles of ecology in an accessible but rigorous way, where students learn about the most basic environmental issues, structure and population dynamics. John Vandermeer and Deborah Goldberg explain that the population is more than just groups of individuals.
Complex variables such as distribution and land for extended groups play their role when mathematical models are applied. Vandermeer and Goldberg build these models from the ground up, from the first principles, using a wide range of experimental examples, from animals and viruses to plants and humans.
It addresses a wide range of exciting topics along the way, including age-based populations, spatially distributed populations, and intermediate outcomes. This secondedition of Population Ecology is updated and expanded with additional exercises in almost every semester, making it the most recent and comprehensive textbook of its kind.
