Matrix Population Models

Matrix Population Models Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Treats population models and their applications in ecology and demography. Begins with simple cases presented in detail so that beginning students can learn how to use these models, then goes on to cover advanced topics in stochastic and nonlinear models. Analytical methods and theoretical issues are illustrated with empirical examples. This new edition offers expanded material on stochastic and density-dependent models, sensitivity analysis, and statistical inference, and new chapters on parameter estimation, structured population models, and applications of matrix models in conservation biology. Caswell teaches biology at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
