About this book

Presents an attempt to modernize the study of the dynamics of natural populations, drawing on both practical and theoretical approaches. It concentrates on the practical use of simulation and population dynamic models, and gives a wide range of biological examples.


Part 1 Theoretical bases of population dynamics: basic properties and structure of population processes; structures and patterns of population processes; statistical analysis of population fluctuations; population process models. Part 2 Analysis of classic cases: analysis of lynx 10-year cycle; snowshoe hare demography; density effects on the dynamics of a single-species population - Utida's experiments on the azuki bean weevil; dynamics of a host-parasitoid interaction system - Utida's experimental study; dynamics of the spruce budworm outbreak processes.
