About this book

Cycles such as the nitrogen cycle are of central importance in the study of ecology. This up-to-date work develops a rigorous mathematical framework within which to model these element cycles and their interaction with plants and soils.
`[the] writing combines brilliant clarity and brevity with profound depth.' John Pastor, BioScience

'[the] writing combines brilliant clarity and brevity with profound depth. The book is so well written that those familiar with these tools will learn not only an approach to problems that is marvellous for its clarity, but also some interesting mathematics along the way.' Full treatments of many of the problems would make excellent thesis topics for students interested in pursuing ecosystem theory.' John Pastor, Bioscience 'I recommend this book to all scientists involved in ecosystem modeling.' The Quarterly Review of Biology '[the] writing combines brilliant clarity and brevity with profound depth.' John Pastor, BioScience 'In general terms, the book deserves praise for its novel perspective. First published in 1996, its message is still fresh.' James W. McClelland, Ecology 'The book will serve as an excellent introduction to ecosystem ecology for those with a mathematical or physics background wishing to work in biological sciences. Ecologists wishing to develop their own modelling skills or to improve their understanding of existing models will also benefit from reading this book.' Michael F. Proe, Forestry '! recommended for both beginners and experienced researchers.' A. D. Pokarzhevskii, Theoretical Ecosystem Ecology
