About this book

Provides a variety of different models to enable researchers to factor chance into their predictions of population, extinction and demographic patterning of animals.

Our conservation effectiveness depends on our ability to understand biodiversity peril and biodiveristy persistence in the face of random environmental shocks. Lande, Engen and Saether have produced THE seminal theoretical contribution to conservation biology -- a brilliant exploration of stochastic influences on extinction and biodiversity. This is not a sterile theoretical treatise; it is a well-written and a certain-to-be-classic melding of theory and real-world examples.Peter Kareiva, Lead Scientist, The Nature Conservancy, USA
