An increasing variety of biological problems involving resource management, conservation and environmental quality have been dealt with using the principles of population biology (defined to include population dynamics, genetics and certain aspects of community ecology). There appears to be a. This book is an introduction to the principles and practice of mathematical modeling in the biological sciences, concentrating on applications in population biology, epidemiology, and resource management. The core of the book covers models in these areas and the mathematics useful in analyzing them, including case studies representing real-life situations.5/5(2).
Population Biology of Plants defines a science of population biology for plants and other fixed organisms. The author describes the processes that determine the number of plants (and the number of plant parts), examines the separate stages in a general model of population behavior, the ways in which individual plants interfere with each others growth and risk of death and aspects of the. Long-Term Consequences of Exponential Human Population Growth Many dire predictions have been made about the world’s population leading to a major crisis called the “population explosion.” In the book The Population Bomb, biologist Paul R. Ehrlich wrote, “The battle to feed all of humanity is driftwood-dallas.com: Matthew R. Fisher.
This book is a careful integration of the social and biological sciences, drawing on anthropology, biology, human ecology and medicine to provide a comprehensive understanding of how our species adapts to natural and man-made environments. Part I presents techniques to adapt and apply demographic methods to small populations, particularly important for studying non-Western populations. A population is a subset of individuals of one species that occupies a particular geographic area and, in sexually reproducing species, interbreeds. The geographic boundaries of a population are easy to establish for some species but more difficult for others. For example, plants or animals occupying islands have a geographic range defined by the perimeter of the island.
