However, the characterisation of these discrete phenomena requires models that go beyond those featured in existing books. Largely concerned with mathematical models used to describe time-varying populations and series of events, The Dynamics of Discrete Populations and Series of Events demonstrates how analytical tools are used to develop. Population dynamics is the branch of life sciences that studies the size and age composition of populations as dynamical systems, and the biological and environmental processes driving them (such as birth and death rates, and by immigration and emigration).Example scenarios are ageing populations, population growth, or population decline.
Virus as Populations: Composition, Complexity, Dynamics, and Biological Implications explains fundamental concepts that arise from regarding viruses as complex populations when replicating in infected hosts. Fundamental phenomena in virus behavior, such as adaptation to changing environments, capacity to produce disease, probability to be.

This book is an introduction into modeling population dynamics in ecology. Because there are several good textbooks on this subject, the book needs a novel \niche" to justify its existence. Unique features of the book are: (1) an emphasis on \parameter free" phase plane analysis, (2) the usage of the epidemiological concept of an RFile Size: 5MB. "This book is a true landmark in the study of population ecology. Never before has a lucid synthesis of the basic principles and models of population dynamics been so effectively merged with insightful analyses of some of the best data for populations of insects, birds and mammals.

Book Description. Placing weed management within an ecological context, this study considers the dynamics of abundance and spatial distribution at both geographic and local scales, and the basic processes of dispersal, reproduction and mortality with the factors that influence by: Book Description.
Recent advances in computational power are now enabling scientists to consider problems of population dynamics at an advanced level.
Scientists from 21 countries convened for the colloquium 'Dynamics of Populations of Planetary Systems', sponsored by the International Astronomical Union, in Belgrade (Serbia and Montenegro).5/5(1).
"This book gives an excellent introduction to our maturing understanding of how ideas about nonlinear dynamical systems can shed light on the complex behavior of real populations. Turchin first presents the theoretical concepts, next the data, and finally brings the Cited by: The Dynamics of Meristem Cell Populations The Proceedings of a conference jointly organized by the Department of Radiation Biology and Biophysics, The University of Rochester, and the Department of Biology, Syracuse University, and convened at Rochester, New York, August 19–21, Editors: Miller, M.

An understanding of the dynamics of populations is critically important to ecologists, evolutionary biologists, wildlife managers, foresters, and many other biologists.
Roger Cousens and Martin Mortimer place weed management within an ecological context, with the focus on the manipulation of population size. They consider the dynamics of abundance and spatial. The Environmental Implications of Population Dynamics is Population Matters' first look at macro-level population and environment trends--and the implications these trends pose for policy at the local, national, and global levels [It] is an exemplary sample of work targeted to a policy : Paperback.
This chapter discusses the fundamental principles of dynamic systems that mirror ecological processes to offer an explanation of the complexity and diversity found in the growth processes of biological populations. A knowledge of animal population dynamics is essential for the proper management of natural resources and the environment.
This book, now available in paperback, develops basic concepts and a rigorous methodology for the analysis of animal population dynamics to. About this book. This book aims to reconcile theoretical models of population dynamics with what is currently known about the population dynamics of large mammalian herbivores.
The ecological basis for weed management provides the keynote for this book. It describes how weed populations increase in abundance and how they spread. It introduces agricultural scientists to Price Range: £ - £ Pages Publisher Summary The classic models of population dynamics are deterministic and of little use in the study of population extinction, except in making the trivial but hugely important point that if the population growth rate r is negative, the population will surely, and rather quickly, go extinct.
Utilizing a diverse group of organizations including national labor unions, newspapers and newspaper publishers, brewing firms, life insurance companies, and banks, this book seeks to deepen and broaden the understanding of change in organizational populations by examining the dynamics of numbers of organizations in populations.
