About this book

Aims to develop a unifying approach to population studies which emphasises the interplay between modelling and experimentation. The aim throughout is to provide biologists and mathematicians with a framework within which population dynamics can be fully explored and understood.

...an excellent introduction to the world of deterministic and stochastic models for population growth, both for students of applied mathematics and statistics at the undergraduate and postgraduate level and for advanced students of theoretical biology. Andris Abakuks, Mathematical Reviews "An excellent reference for the class of mathematical models that it considers...The quality of the book is high...As an applied statistician with an interest--and some background--in the models discussed, I found the book easy to read, extremely useful, and its perspective sensible. It is well worth its price." Judy Zeh, Journal of the American Statistical Association
