About this book

Mathematical Models of Plant-Herbivore Interactions addresses mathematical models in the study of practical questions in ecology, particularly factors that affect herbivory, including plant defence, herbivore natural enemies, and adaptive herbivory, as well as the effects of these on plant community dynamics.

The result of extensive research on the use of mathematical modelling to investigate the effects of plant defences on plant-herbivore dynamics, this book describes a toxin-determined functional response model that helps explains field observations of these interactions.

This book is intended for graduate students and researchers interested in mathematical biology and ecology.
