Series: Ecological methods and concepts series.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Students often find it difficult to grasp fundamental ecological and evolutionary concepts because of their inherently mathematical nature. Likewise, the application of ecological and evolutionary theory often requires a high degree of mathematical competence. This book is a first step to addressing these difficulties, providing a broad introduction to the key methods and underlying concepts of mathematical models  Read more...

Publisher Synopsis

-In general, the explanations are clear and the book would be suitable for a modeling section in a year-long, undergraduate, advanced ecology course.- (The Quarterly Review of Biology, 1 June 2011) Read more...
