About this book

Ilkka Hanski, widely acknowledged to be one of the most outstanding population biologists of his generation, reviews our understanding of metapopulation dynamics, examines the relevant empirical studies - including the author's own unique research on the metapopulation biology of the Glanville fritillary butterfly - and includes discussions of practical applications to conservation biology. One of the hottest areas in ecology today, this book is an important, state-of-the-art review of the field, and should have enormous impact.

Media reviews

Hanski's new book is a basic and very comprehensive textbook essential to anyone who wants to study the ecology of fragmented populations in close detail. It is integrated, didactic, and systematic, carefully maintaining a balance between theory and empirical results. Folia Geobotanica Iikka Hanski is the foremost authority on metapopulations and has co-edited two of the main texts on the subject ... and conservation biologists everywhere would do well to read this book.
