Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Reviews from the hardback: ...an exciting journey through Dr Royama's wide experience ... - Bulletin of Mathematical Biology; ...of interest to a wide range of applied and theoretical biologists. - Ethology, Ecology and Evolution; ... Part I is interesting and highly readable. I have no reservations about Part II of Royama's book. In it, he presents a marvelous review of four classic studies of population dynamics: the Canadian lynx, the snowshoe hare, Utida's experiments on the azuki bean weevil (including, in a separate chapter, the interaction with the braconid wasp), and the spruce budworm. Royama reveals himself to be practical and generaly non-dogmatic in his approach to modelling. As in Part I, his writing is lively. Overall, I recommend this book - particularly Part II - to anyone interested in modelling the dynamics of biological populations with the following proviso - Ecology
