"Excellent ... .Recommended text book for courses on mathematical modelling in ecology and evolution." (Biological Conservation, April 2010)
"It deserves the merit of being one of the few books that have actual potential to attract readers that are often frightened by the mere vision of a Greek letter." (Annals of Botany, September 2009)
"Contains the most essential information to decrypt the current mathematical literature in ecology. It is presented simply, with applications in mind. It should be of great use." (Experimental Agriculture, 2009)
"This is an academic textbook with a good introduction to mathematical models mainly in ecology but also evolution, intended for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates. The models are well explained and usually easy to follow." (The Naturalist, 2009)
- Written clearly and succinctly, requiring minimal in-depth knowledge of mathematics.
- Introduces students to the use of computer models in both fields of ecology and evolutionary biology.
- Market - senior undergraduate students and beginning postgraduates in ecology and evolutionary biology
