Trends in Ecology and Evolution, 1, The first is devoted to unstructured population models whereas the second deals with structured population models. The dynamics of a simple laissez-faire model with two predators. Maynard Smith, and S.

Bulletin of Mathematical Biology, 54, To summarize the contents of the monograph, in the single-species model section, there are six chapters on exponential, logistic, and Gompertz growth, on harvest models, on stochastic birth and death models, mathematicwl discrete time models, on delay models, and on branching processes. At the end of each chapter, the author gives some recommendations for further readings which is a slements help, especially for those which are not so familiar with the underlying theory.

Elements of Mathematical Ecology provides an introduction to classical and modern mathematical models, methods, and issues in population ecology.


Ecological Modelling, 43, The model equations in population ecology are most often ordinary or partial differential equations. All solutions are graphically illustrated which is a major advantage of that book especially for readers without a strong mathematical back- ground.

The section on age-structured models consists of six chapters, in which the author distinguishes between continuous time and births, discrete time and births, continuous time and age structure as well as discrete time and age structure.

Zipf’s law and the diversity of biology newsgroups. The Lotka integral equation. Journal of Mathematical Biology, 30, In my opinion, the monograph of Mark Kot is very helpful and important for population ecologists as well as for ecologists and biologists in general. Topics covered include density dependence, bifurcations, demographic stochasticity, time delays, population interactions predation, competition, and mutualismand the application of optimal control theory to the management of renewable madk.
