As profound threats to ecosystems increase worldwide, ecologists must move beyond studying single communities at a single point in time. All of the dynamic, interconnected spatial and temporal processes that determine the distribution and abundance of species must be understood in order to develop new conservation and management strategies.

Overview

As profound threats to ecosystems increase worldwide, ecologists must move beyond studying single communities at a single point in time. All of the dynamic, interconnected spatial and temporal processes that determine the distribution and abundance of species must be understood in order to develop new conservation and management strategies.

This volume is the first to integrate mathematical and biological approaches to these crucial topics. The editors include not only a wide variety of theoretical approaches, but also a broad range of experimental and field studies, with chapters written by renowned experts in community ecology, ecological modeling, population genetics, and conservation biology.

In addition to providing new insights into well-known topics such as migration, the authors also introduce some less familiar subjects, including bacterial population genetics and ecotoxicology. For anyone interested in the study, management, and conservation of populations, this book will prove to be a valuable resource.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A collection of papers from a May 1993 symposium held in Aiken, South Carolina, summarizing ideas relating to spatial and temporal aspects of critical population level processes. Sections on population models, population responses in space and time, genetic organization in space and time, and population perturbations in space and time include section summaries, and treat topics including metapopulation ecology and gene conservation. Of interest to students and professionals in conservation ecology. Paper edition (unseen), 17.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
