About this book

Covers non-linear population dynamics, more specifically the estimation of the parameters of the underlying dynamical processes, more specifically the development of techniques of estimation for short, ecological time-series, where the number of generations ranges typically from about 20 to 70.


Preface. Part One: Methodology. An introduction to time series analysis. An introduction to non-linear dynamical theory. Measles as a testbed for characterizing non-linear dynamics in ecology. Fitting models to phase-space surfaces. Lyapunov exponents and sensitive dependence on initial conditions. The use of linear models in ecological population dynamics. Part Two: Case Studies. Analysis of Plodia interpunctella data in a host-pathogen-parasitoid system. Analysis of Lucilia sericata blowfly data. Analysis of moth and aphid data from the Rothamsted Insect Survey. Analysis of Fenno-Scandinavian small mammal data. Part Three: Overview and Conclusions. Overview and conclusions. Symbols and conventions used. Glossary. Index.
