Most widely held works by Robert A Desharnais
Population dynamics and the Tribolium model : genetics and demography by Robert F Costantino( Book )
7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 197 libraries worldwide
Population dynamics and laboratory ecology ( Book )
9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 160 libraries worldwide
Population Dynamics and Laboratory Ecology highlights the contributions laboratory studies are making to our understanding of the dynamics of ecological and evolutionary systems. Chapters address the scientific rationale for laboratory ecology, its historical role within the broader discipline, and recent advances in research. The book presents results from a wide range of laboratory systems including insects, mites, plankton, protists, and microbes. A common theme throughout the book is the value of microcosm studies in advancing our knowledge of ecological and evolutionary principles. Each chapter is authored by scientists who are leading experts in their fields. The book addresses fundamental questions that are of interest to biologists whether they work in the laboratory or field or whether they are primarily empiricists or theorists. * Details a scientific rationale for laboratory systems in ecological and evolutionary studies * Offers a view on historical role of laboratory studies * Includes examples of recent research advances in ecology and evolution using laboratory systems, ranging from insects to microbes * Integrates mathematics, statistics and experimental studies

Cinema spec : tales of Hollywood and fantasy ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
"Cinema spec : tales of Hollywood and fantasy views moving pictures in all their forms, real and imaginary, from shadow plays to classic films, from videocassettes to animated tattoos. 32 authors have contributed flash fiction, short stories, and poetry to the anthology, transporting us back to a time when flames flickered and paintings waltzed on cave walls, and forward to possible futures when the heavens themselves might serve as vidscreens. Along the way, we make multiple stops in Hollywood, the one we know and the one that could never exist, from 30s noir to extraterrestrial infiltration, from a magical 'gangland' to destruction after 'the big one.' Come join us in the dark"--P. [4] of cover

Advances in ecological research ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The book is based on data collected during the past 10 years by Zackenberg Ecological Research Operations (ZERO) at Zackenberg Research Station in Northeast Greenland. This volume covers the function of Arctic ecosystems based on the most comprehensive lo
Chaos in Ecology: Experimental Nonlinear Dynamics. Theoretical Ecology Series ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
It is impossible to predict the exact behavior of all biological systems and how these same systems are exemplified by patterns of complexity and regularity. Decades of research in ecology have documented how these sorts of patterns are the consequences of deceptively simple rules that determine the nature of the patterns created. "Chaos in Ecology" will explain how simple beginnings result in complicated results. "Chaos in Ecology" is the inaugural volume of "Theoretical Ecology" series". The authors of this volume have employed data from a proven model system in population dynamics. As a result, this book will be of interest to anyone interested in the ecology of populations. This realization is captured in the mathematical notion of "chaos" and is rendered intuitive by the oft-repeated metaphor: "A butterfly beats its wings in China and causing a thunderstorm in the Midwest." Thus, seemingly trivial initial conditions (e.g. a butterfly in China) cascade through a series of intermediate events to create a significant large-scale event (e.g. a thunderstorm)

The authors of this volume have employed data from a proven model system in population dynamics. As a result, this book will be of interest to anyone interested in the ecology of populations. It is impossible to predict the exact behavior of almost all biological systems and yet these same systems are exemplified by patterns of complexity and regularity. Decades of research in ecology have documented that these sorts of patterns are the consequence of deceptively simple rules that determine the nature of the patterns created. In essence, simple beginnings result in complicated results. This realization is captured in the mathematical notion of "chaos" and is rendered intuitive by the oft-repeated metaphor: "A butterfly beats its wings in China and causing a thunderstorm in the Midwest."
