About this book

Introduces readers to the use of dynamic mathematical models in environmental problem solving and in the study of ecology. The focus of the book is modelling rather than specific models. There is extensive software, called SOLVER, to be made available in executable versions on the Internet, to facilitate the laboratory component of this course.

"An excellent text for graduate students in ecology! For the first time one book presents both population ecology and ecosystem dynamics in one easily accessible format. It is hoped that this text will lead to a new generation of ecologists who can integrate these two approaches to ecological systems for a richer understanding."--Stefan A. Sommer, Idaho State University
