Population Dynamics for Conservation

Louis W. Botsford, J. Wilson White, and Alan Hastings

  • Provides a synthetic and coherent overview of the theory of single population dynamics, rather than just existing population models per se
  • Includes simplified summaries, derived principles, and application case studies that will be useful to a broader audience of conservation biologists
  • Integrates relevant recent developments such as integral projection, marine protected areas, frequency responses of populations, and the increasing understanding of transient behaviour
  • Assumes a familiarity with basic calculus and an introductory course in statistics as well as explaining and making use of more advanced mathematical concepts such as matrices, partial differential equations, probability, and spectral analysis
