About this book

Matrix Population Models, Second Edition includes expanded treatment of stochastic and density-dependent models, sensitivity analysis, and statistical inference, and new chapters on parameter estimation, structured population models, demographic sto-chasticity, and applications of matrix models in conservation biology. Matrix Population Models is an indispensable reference for graduate students and researchers in ecology, population biology, conservation biology, and human demography.

"an excellent reference for all those interested in the application of matrix population models in the biological sciences."
- Mathematical Population Studies.


Age-classified matrix models; stage-classified life cycles; stage-classified matrix models; structured population models; analysis of the life-cycle graph; sensitivity analysis and evolutionary demography; statistical inference about matrix-models; deterministic time-varying models; stochastic time-varying models; demographic stochasticity; density-dependent models; two-sex models; matrix population models in conservatism and management. Appendix: The basics of matrix algebra.
