About this book

Lions eat antelope and antelope eat grass, but what determines how many lions and antelope there are, and how much grass there is? This book shows biologists and ecologists how to understand and interpret these ecological and agro-ecological questions by dealing with predator/prey relationships in terms of mathematical models of population ecology.
