    Subjects: Ecology and conservation

The core message of this study is that key insights emerge from understanding what determines population growth rate, and that application of the approach will make ecology a more predictive science. What determines where a species lives? And what determines its abundance? Despite great progress in the twentieth century, much more remains to be done before we can provide full answers to these classic questions in ecology. This book takes an original approach by describing and deploying progressive research methods.


"This volume would make a wonderful text for a graduate seminar in population dynamics; and can serve as a launching pad for further readings on the subject." Écoscience
