Complex population dynamics : a theoretical/empirical synthesis

Author: Peter Turchin
Publisher: Princeton, N.J. : Princeton University Press, 2003.
Series: Monographs in population biology, 35.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Why do organisms become extremely abundant one year and then seem to disappear a few years later? Why do population outbreaks in particular species happen more or less regularly in certain locations, but only irregularly (or never at all) in other locations? Complex population dynamics have fascinated biologists for decades. By bringing together mathematical models, statistical analyses, and field experiments, this  Read more...
