Summary:
"This book provides a theoretical background of branching processes and discusses their biological applications. Branching processes are a well developed and powerful set of tools in the field of applied probability. The range of applications considered includes molecular biology, cellular biology, human evolution, and medicine. The branching processes discussed include Galton-Watson, Markov, Bellman-Harris,
