Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“I was impressed with the excellent job done by the authors…particularly, how the biology is explained first and then the math necessary to solve the problem is developed.” —Phil Ryan, Truman State University

“I would strongly recommend publication. This book will show young biologists how their existing mathematical skills can be put to powerful use in modern biology.“ —Martin Steward, University of Manchester
