About this book

Intended for graduate students and researchers interested in spatial ecology, including applications to conservation, pest control and fisheries. The methodological approaches discussed will be useful to ecologists working with all taxonomic groups, and the mathematics has been kept to an acceptable level for the empirical ecologist. The author has selected case studies from a wide variety of organisms - plants (seed dispersal, spatial spread of clonal plants), insects and vertebrates (fish, birds and mammals).


Contents

Why study movement?; data for measuring movement; modelling movement; building behaviourally based models; analysis of movement paths; mass mark-recapture; individual mark-recapture. Appendix A: diffusion for ecologists.
