Overview

The book, Estimation and Analysis of Insect Populations, is about estimation of population parameters in stage frequency structured populations and the subsequent use of this information in development of mathematical and computer models. The unique contribution of this work is the extensive, comparative review of statistical methods used in the estimation of stage frequency parameters, the review of modeling techniques, and presentation of new approaches to both parameter estimation and modeling. Thus, this book will be of value in both pedagogic and research applications. This book will be of interest to advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and research scientists in the fields of statistics, entomology, and other areas of applied population ecology. It could well serve as either the primary text or as an important reference in courses involving estimation, analysis, and modeling of stage frequency structured populations. As such, advertisement should be directed toward academic, departments and research laboratories involved in natural resource management (e.g. Fisheries and Wildlife, Entomology, Forestry), or applied mathematics (e.g. Statistics).
