About this book
Incorporates new modeling techniques for observing small-scale biological processes such as bacterial chemotaxis, zooplankton behaviour, and organismal responses to turbulence. The text includes coverage of nonlinear analysis techniques and the application of concepts from chaos theory to problems of spatial and temporal patterns in aquatic theory.
