Applied Mathematical Ecology

This book builds on the basic framework developed in the earlier volume - "Mathematical Ecology", edited by T.G.Hallam and S.A.Levin, Springer 1986, which lays out the essentials of the subject. In the present book, the applications of mathematical ecology in ecotoxicology, in resource management, and epidemiology are illustrated in detail. The most important features are the case studies, and the interrelatedness of theory and application. There is no comparable text in the literature so far. The reader of the two-volume set will gain an appreciation of the broad scope of mathematical ecology.
